Angry DO NOT buy from Don Jacobs Subaru!

ARRRGGGHHH! I got a really unpleasant surprize today. Please, please, PLEASE learn from my mistake!!!!!!

When I purchased my used 1995 Impreza L in Feb of 2001, the dealer had just taken it in off a trade the day before - hence it had no window sticker. At the time, the salesperson told me it was a 2.2L with AWD. I was much less knowledgable about the Subies at the time mind you, so I would not have know where to verify this info. Hence begins my problem...

Imagine my anger when I happened to go out to replace my headlamp this week and happened to be looking at the placard in the inside of the hood only to see the engine type EJ18!!!!!! I was hoping it was a terrible mistake, but I had a Somers Subaru look up the VIN and they confirmed it is a 1.8L.

I called Don Jacobs Subaru who sold me the vehicle and they refused to do anything!!! They said that on the Wisconsin Dealer info (the window sticker) it said 1.8.
Ok... so basically I was lied to and got screwed. There's nothing I can do about it now since I signed the Wisconsin Dealer info. I even asked the dealer at the time of signing about the 1.8 on the info, but he said that was a typo!!!!! A$$HOLE! They offered nothing to make it up to me either... I feel so stupid to have believed him.

So what recourse do I really have? I guess file a complaint with BBB and SOA...

I'm so angry I'm shaking and so sad I could cry. I'm so dissappointed...

Don't buy anything from Don Jacobs in Milwaukee! They are not a reputable dealer!

Well... about 15 days have passed and nobody bothered to reply...so I will.

Sorry you got screwed by the dealer...were you there alone? They always seem to LOVE taking advantage of women anyway, since they figure that she wont know a 2.2 from a 1.8 and its easy to overlook this unless you look.

Again, sorry about the screwjob, and maybe the next one can be a nice, shiny, new Subbie.
