Default Anybody's car run like crap after...

the recent Subaru recall on ECU reprogramming?

I just had mine done yesterday, and within 5 miles of the dealership, my car started running like total crap (zero acceleration) RPM jocking with A/C on in cruise, etc. It threw a CE light and stalled out. I finally got it started (CE still on) and turned it around to leave it at the dealership again...

No word from the dealership yet on cause, but was just wondering if anyone else had similar experiences. Luckily Maita Subaru is awesome, so no worries on them figuring this out..

My car was having similar issues to what you described about a week before my ecu reprogramming, and it hasn't happened since.
But I still have a check engine light.
But on the plus side, my gas mileage has increased dramatically (about 100 miles more per tankful).
