Your Story:

Bought the Type-RA last year October. Has had minor issues with 3rd gear since day one, occasionally not wanting to go into gear. Haven't missed shifts or over-revved (not my first manual Subaru, have had manual Subaru's since 2001). 3rd-4th completely failed last month, would grind every time shifting even at low speeds and any RPM. Took it in for warranty claim at the dealer I used to work at, they went to bat for me but ultimately Subaru Corporate denied the claim...

Probably have to sell the car because I was laid off recently too. Bill is over $5000. Car is paid off.
That blows. Not for nothing but the only one who would report that you had it tuned is the mechanic. Then from there the writer had to have documented it, filled out a mod report, then sent it into Subaru. If they were still cool with you they’d never turn it in or fill it out in the first place. It sucks. We’ve warrantied a lot of stuff we shouldn’t have because they would rather not deal with a bad review.
