I'm kinda pissed I'm hearing about this through google and not the MySubaru page. Isn't that the whole point? There's a recall section on the personal subaru site you sign up for after you buy your Subaru and they are supposed to notify you of any issued recalls.

I guess it was a holiday weekend but that didn't stop them from issuing a statement online.

What are you pissed and furious about? This is a very recent recall, you will get notified. Your car does not have a problem (yet) so you've got nothing to worry about.

There are loads of threads on NASIOC already discussing this. If anything you should be disappointed with SOA's solution to the problem.

I'm not really that mad- just wanted to start a discussion on it here.

It would have been nice for the mysubaru feature to work as designed though.

It's all in the nature of how auto companies are required to issue recalls. As I'm sure many of the guys who work at dealers can tell you, the media often gets ahold of recall information before we do. Don't take it personal. Try having your friends ask you about ask you about the recall for the "sticking" gas pedal in their toyota and just having to say you know as much as they do.

You realize that this was announced just last week, right? Actual press release was July 1. Instant gratification has taken its toll on America.

Also, there are lots of threads on this in General, News and Rumors, etc.
You will get notified.
We all read Jalopnik/CNN/Fox/Autoblog/Motortrend, and have all heard about it.

There's no real reason to have a discussion.
"OMG!! Can you guys believe that Subaru, a major corporation with a history of safety made a mistake!! And they're fixing it for free?!" "WHAT?!"

It is all based on your VIN #.
According to the dealer, not all produced vehicles, within the mentioned time frame, are recalled.

I have a 2011 STI, and after checking the VIN# at Subaru of Wakefield, I was assured that my vehicle is not included in the recall, thus no e-mail notification via the mysubaru account/site.

Maybe there's no reason for you to discuss it because it doesn't interest you. It does interest many other people and that's where you need to step away from the keyboard or look at another thread.

If you think SOA slapping cosmoline on the lines is "fixing it" then you are the eternal optimist. Just like the control arms they seem more than OK with waiting for critical parts to fail before replacing them. If they have a design flaw and they are owning up to it, they should swap out the parts with an improved version. As far as I can tell there is no improved version, just a good dose of wax.

Ah that's good to know and that makes sense. I should have checked that.

I guess there isn't a need for a discussion on this issue on a subaru discussion forum.

There's a year old recall on oil lines in my Lotus. I've known about the problem for 2 years and implimented my own fix. I've never been notified by Lotus. Well, not yet anyways.

You're complaining about a recall from July 1st?

Not sure but this move is nothing more than SoA buying time. So, great, the lines won't rot in 7 years...instead it'll be 9 years.

I would love to have the conversation with the engineering group that decided this is the most effective method of correcting this defect. I will say that this **** wouldn't fly in my company that's for sure.

There are older recalls for other models for a similar problem. Subaru has had some sloppy fixes for problems in the past, it took them many years to acknowledge the cold weather leaking fuel lines. I showed them fuel dripping onto my block and venting into the car and they assured me it wasn't an issue.

They definitely recalled for this already as I took our 08 in for this and the ecu reprogram before they recalled the catalytic converter. Nonsense!!
