Default Deceleration Noise Issues: Clutch Only

I have this clutch problem and was just wondering if you guys know which dealer should I take my car in for this warranty work done? I am in San Diego and I do have some mods (or anywhere near San Diego is fine). I know this question had been asked before but there weren't any replies to it so I ask again. The reason I ask is because that I heard we have some unfriendly Subaru dealer in S. D. Thanks in advance...

I took mine in to BB El Cajon in December specifically for this and got the "they all make that noise" response. I'm taking it back for its 15,000 mile checkup soon, and will try again, talking to the manager and bringing the parts numbers for Subaru's "fix."

Good luck.

I would like to be kept informed on this, since I bought my car from Bob Baker El Cajon over a year ago. Is Irvine handling these claims? The noise just seems to get worse and worse and the mile get racked up.

From what I heard their customer service sucks and it seems that other Subaru dealers don't talk highly of them. I haven't heard anything about them servicing the decel problem.

Nothing good to say. Same old tired canned excuses and little or no action.

I'm pretty sure that Renick said they would fix this problem for anyone. It could have been Irvine but I'm pretty sure it's Renick. Give them a call and find out.

I remember a post that renick fixed the deceleration noise.

If the last six digits of you VIN are lower than 515611, you have the old type clutch from the factory. If your motor number is less than 331738 (white tag, hard to find), you have the old clutch from the factory.

guys, you should keep these threat short and sweet...

i am sure these dealers are very nice but maybe we should make everything so "public"

take it in or call in, talk to the rep who are active on this board and i am they'll hook you up

just afraid this would put too much pressure on the dealer and they start backing out on the good will jobs...

just a thought
