Unhappy How is planet in hanover with warranties?

Im driving home from work and i hear a knocking sound. So i pull over and check out the motor. I dont see anything leaking or that looks loose. I check the oil and its full, very dark, but full. So i hop back in the car and continue home. I didnt hit boost at all or even go above 55 mph on the way home keeping my rpm below 3500. The noise is still there and is definatly coming from the motor. Im still under warranty thru subaru and have never had anything like this happen before. How hard of a time are they going to give me over fixing this? The car is totally stock.

If its fully stock, you shouldn't have an issue- the service guys arn't too bad. but just make sure you clarify everything first. that way, they can't exceed the scope of your visit. Their hourly rate is terribly high though.

Are their dealerships that are better at honoring warranty work than others? Are there some that "overlook" a modded car?

yes. some dealers will look at a car, and if it's modded (and wasn't sold to you, by them, like that) will immediately say "that's your problem". Most are ok with looking at engine warranty items if you've done suspension mods. and vice versa. Where the mod doesn't affect in the least the system, and some don't really care at all unless it's blatantly obvious that you put 30 psi through your motor and expected it to hold.

Bottom line, if the car is mod-free, you shouldn't have a problem. Just go to the closest dealer, warranty that bitch and get your free rental car.

Did the knocking get faster along with the engine?

My money is on a bearing, but I'm no expert. My friend's Forester sounded much like you describe. Hopefully it's something simple, but if not, you could get a new motor out of the deal.

Yes the knocking sound did get faster as the rpm went higher. I dont really care if they rebuild it or replace it as long as i have a working car. I mean ive only had the car since febuary.

Broken pickup I would guess. Get Killer B one.

Have them also replace oil cooler and thorougly clean everything or you'll be going thru this again.

Any problems with the car once you got it back? Looking at a used scooby from that dealership and was wondering how their work is as well.
