So you think a single dealer issue means you can't recommend Subaru to friends? Subaru is one of the better manufacturers when it comes to CS. Your issue is with the dealer not Subaru.Ii want to thank everyone for their feedback. That my situation is not normal and it appears that on top of that the dealership soaked me. Lesson learned.
I do love the vehicle but was hoping I would hear someone tell me that they had Subaru stand behind their products, rather than just take the money and run. As I mentioned for me when I went directly to Subaru itself they just quoted their warranty and when I asked to speak with someone higher up because this isn't right they told me their service rep does not talk to customers. Now that is not service.
Hopefully there are no further issues and this is a one off, but sadly at this point I can't recommend Subaru to friends.
Thanks again all
As a former Tech for over 10 years, let me give you a little insight- you can't recommend any brand to anyone. Dealers are independent and vary, doesn't matter which manufacturer- even the expensive brands.
