2004 WRX Wagon


Name: Eric B

Make: 2004 Impreza WRX Sport Wagon


Time Out Of Use: 0

Problem And Likely Cause: 2 faded paint spots on hood of car.

Modifications: NONE

Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): YES

Reason Given For Denial: Exposure to environment (bird droppings)

Your Story: About 3-4 months after purchasing car I noticed a faded spot on the hood (looked like damage under the clear coat). One month later a second spot appeared within 2 inches of the original.

Background on car: First 4 months it was kept in a carport with a car cover, and now it resides in a private garage. Car is washed once a week and has never had bird droppings sit on the paint for more than a day or so.

Regional SOA representative denied claim because he said it was environmental damage (most likely bird droppings). Claims Subaru has almost no claims on the paint and couldn't possibly be a problem from the factory. Funny thing is every car I have ever owned has sat outside for years and never had any problems like this with the paint.
