Honestly, I'm thinking about parting it out of OEM parts, and scraping it. I don't have the time to tear the motor apart, let alone pull the motor out. And if I have a shop tear it down, it'll cost me about $1~1.5k. Then if it's ringland, I may need to rebore the engine cylinder + get new pistons or find a new used engine which is an additional cost... I figure it wouldn't make sense as it may cost an upwards of $4k, more or less, which would be nearly half the cost of the car... So in my mind, parting it out and scraping it would make the most sense, as I could easily make $2k(Wheels, seats, dash parts, etc), which would recoup for the loss of the car, and go towards a new car. It's no where the cost of the car, but I figure, it'll be better than paying possibly an upwards of $4k...

But i'm still debating what i'll do and will need to make up some more time to see what's going on, if I can see anything...

It's a 2012, so it's just a little under a year over the 5 year warranty....

I would call Subaru of America .
The least they could do is a free inspection to see what is wrong then you have a better idea of what to do.

Less than 50k on a car something like this shouldn't happen, I bet they will do something g for you or maybe a discount on the repair.

Even if it is 4K to fix you still could sell it and make 6k that you wouldn't have otherwise.

Actually, the warranty is 8 years 100k so you should still be covered.

Isn't that warranty just for oil consumption though? I think this is a case of oil explosion.

And if not, you'll at least get a free autopsy.

Well, he consumed a lot of oil at once.

I'm sure given the warranty and the PR around the issue, they'd want to make it right. It's one thing if someone was negligent and seized their engine, this seems just like a random catastrophic failure.

Yea, i'm planning to call SOA ASAP. Just been so busy that I haven't had time to deal with it.

I hope they can do something, but if they can't, oh well..

True, but that's also $4k that could go towards a new car. And then I wouldn't really have to deal with paying for other things, like a rental.

LOL

I don't know if it's oil explosion. It could just be a case of serious oil consumption, that happened out of no where. Or something else went fatally wrong.

Yea.. haha

Knowing subaru, I'm sure they will do something right. I just need to make up the time to figure out what I can do, and what SOA can do. Yea definitely. I took care of this care like no other and haven't let anyone else work on the car, so I know what's been done to it.....

Or maybe.. Just maybe.. I dropped my 10mm socket into the oil filler cap, and that's where it's been hiding. Just Kidding.

Anyways...

I'll keep you guys posted. Hopefully during the weekend, i'll have enough time to get started on this..

Probably no one has heard of this but just in case.

After going down a big hill (one I drive down everyday) I heard this kind of nails on chalkboard scratch noise for just a few seconds followed by a noise that sounded like a spring rebounding with a thud.

Not super loud I had to turn the music down to tell, I'm pretty sure it was my car but not 100% sure.

I had the car in manual mode since it was icy out and I didn't want it to downshift on me, and it made the noise a little after I switched back into auto. Probably not related but the more info the better.

A little salty. Went from 50 and pouring rain to about 15 and snowy over night. At least the roads were drivable!
