Don't pay interest, get air miles, build credit, and pay it off.
Not to mention my ass is way to lazy to walk into the store and pay cash, which isn't even going to fill my tank all the way. But I use debit anyways, always have, don't see the point in cash, it's obsolete.

There is very little profit in selling gas.... most gas stations make their money selling food and beverages etc...

Default Subaru Dealership Not Honoring Existing Problem 2009 WRX Battery

Took the 2009 WRX into the dealership within warranty because it dies if you don't drive it everyday and they said there's nothing wrong with the battery(fully charged). Now I bring it in again because it continues to die all the time time and they are charging me 185.00 bucks because its 6 months out of warranty.

Does anyone have any advice on how I can deal with this? I thought the warranty covered everything in the car (parts,materials) and they say the battery was fully charged so they have no "code" to bill corporate. Sounds like total bull****, right? If the car is dying all the time and they can't find anything wrong with the battery or codes in the car's computer DOES NOT MEAN NOTHING IS WRONG.

I am looking for some strong words I can use this Saturday to get them to pony up on the battery replacement...either pertaining to the warranty covering a defective battery or existing known issues with batteries dying for no reason.

Any advice is appreciated!

Batteries are wear and tear items not usually covered in warranties

It seems to me that is was an issue that was documented before the warranty ran out and they failed to discover the problem.

Call SOA and take it up with them.

BTW...What makes you think the battery is defective? Have you had it load tested? You may also have recourse with the battery manufacturer. Batteries are warrantied too. May be worth a try.

Do you have aftermarket electronics installed? Sounds like it could be some kind of drain.

I honestly dont think it's the battery, they said they tested it and it was full, it seems like something is draining it when it's not on.

The factory warranty is 3yrs 36,000 miles bumper to bumper. From date of sale. If your car was sold at lets say 150 miles your warranty expires at 36,150 miles or 36 months from date of sale (sold 4/30/09 it would still be in warranty). That is for which ever comes first. If you have 36,450 miles now but not the 36 months its out of warranty.

The stock battery carries a pro-rated warranty depending on age. If it's a 72 month battery and fails a load test after 3 years you're not always guaranteed a full replacement. You may only get $50 for it.

One thing folks do tend to forget is that an item like a battery requires some attention. If it freezes, or is ever fully drained this will cause it to fail and some manufactures claim this voids the warranty on the spot.

If you're having a power drain issue it is best you locate that before replacing the battery. The battery is an easy item to test, a power drain is best left to the professionals.

subaru 3/36 covers the battery. no pro-rate on the battery. warranty pays for it in full.

However since your car is 6 months out of warranty, its up to SOA to be nice and cover it. Its not up to the dealership. So before you go into the dealership raising hell, contact SOA. If you don't appear to have any brand or dealership loyalty, it may be harder to get it covered. Also if its documented it was fine during warranty and still passing the battery tests... there isn't a documented failure. You may have something else going on. Auto start? aftermarket audio deck? broken door jam switch leaving your dome light on? dig further.

Also since you appear to be a new member, NASIOC restricts new members from posting new threads or pics until you have a certain amount of posts.

I'll put this here as it kind of grinds my gears, but is also a bit sad. Anyway...

WGMG: People who bitch and complain about being singled out, profiled or otherwise cased by the police and law enforcement for driving a certain type of car, yet then turn around and defend fellow drivers for their asshattery. Would one not think there is a correlation there?

You speak my mind as well. I had this threads postings on my mind all morning thinking about it, and you sir have summed it all up in all but a few sentences of what my opinion of the situation is.

Of course there is more to my opinion than just the above. But it's a waste of time to publicly post my opinion as others will most certainly trump mine. All in all, the same ***** GMG as well.

Should they spit out the passenger window or switch lanes first ?

I always look to make sure I won't spit on someone's car before I do.
