BEWARE OF THIS GUY. Worse than a scam artist. His name is Jason A. He sold me his wrx a few weeks ago and was very dishonest about the sale. Sold me a car with broken piston ringlands. He and I agreed that he would help me with the situation. All he did was prolong the situation and wasted my time and money. After the situation he rarely picked up his phone and never called me back when he said he would. He also said he took the car to Andrewtech which was a lie. I could not see anyone at Andrewtech missing this type of problem. The engine shook very violently and alot of smoke trailed. The fact that I did not know much about these cars he took advantage of that and just told me bull crap. He told me that the engine shaking was backfire pressure from the exhaust and the shaking was always like that. There was alot of smoke coming out of the bov and he told me that all I needed was an oil catch can. When I test drove the vehicle I drove it at night so I could not see smoke at all. The car drove fine. I also tried pushing the car a little but I could not go into boost in 1st and 2nd gear. He told me that he had a "very conservative tune". Also when the vehicle was delivered to me it was at night. Next morning me being very excited I start the car and there was smoke. I thought it was fine because of the tbe. So I took the car to Andrewtech and Andrew told me that I had broken piston ringlands. I was furious after I heard that. Now the wrx is in my hands at the shop. $3500 fix. I asked him if he would be able to split the cost at all, I know its not his responsibility to pay for anything, but he told me that when he bought this car the same thing happened to him. He told me that he did not want to sell me a broken car and he said he was a "good guy"..... Unfortunately not. He caused me 3 weeks of not having a vehicle. and plus shop time which is 2.5 weeks.

Thanks Jason!
