Default

Name: Conor

Make: '15 WRX

Mileage: 75k

Time Out Of Use: n/a

Problem And Likely Cause: Bad oil leak from the front timing chain case, oil pan, and cam area (can't remember what the dealer said); Poor work done by dealer.

Modifications: None

Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): No

Reason Given For Denial: Subaru only guarantees work for 12k miles.

Your Story: The short block was replaced at ~53k miles under warranty by a Subaru dealership out of town, since I broke down on a road trip. I drop off my car at the local dealership for regular 75k mile service and they tell me I have a leak on the front timing chain case, oil pan, and cam area (can't remember what the dealer said). They say the work is only guaranteed for 12k miles and I will have to pay out of pocket (dealership quoted me ~$3,500). I am going to call Subaru, but I think I may have to pay out pocket.
