THIS CAR IS A LEMON. I PREVIOUSLY OWNED 2 SUBARUS (BOTH USED), THAT I HAD VIRTUALLY ZERO PROBLEMS WITH, THEN BOUGHT THIS NEW FROM APPLE SUBARU IN YORK, PA. IT HAS EXPERIENCED PROBLEMS BEFORE IT EVEN HIT 50,000 MILES. THE TRANNY THEY REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY; BUT IT TOOK THEM 3 WEEKS TO DO SO, AND ONLY COMPLETED JOB WHEN THEY NEEDED THE LOANER CAR BACK WITHIN 24 HOURS. LESS THAN 6,000 MILES LATER, ON CHRISTMAS EVE, THE CLUTCH THROW OUT BEARING FAILED, I HAD TO PAY FOR TOWING TO AND FROM THE DEALERSHIP. THEY CALLED ON12/26, AND INFORMED ME THAT IT WOULD NOT BE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY ( EVEN THOUGH THEY EASILY COULD HAVE RUSHED THE TRANNY JOB AND CAUSED THIS), THAT IT WAS A "WEAR POINT." WHEN I HEARD $1700, ASKED TO SPEAK WITH THE SERVICE MGR., WHO INFERRED THAT I WAS IGNORANT, AND HUNG UP ON ME! I HAVE NEVER REPLACED A CLUTCH IN NEARLY 40 YEARS OF DRIVING MANUAL TRANSMISSION AUTOS. MOTOR NOW TAPS AT 69,000 MI.; NEEDS REPLACEMENT BECAUSE ONE OF THE CONNECTING RODS IS BENT, AND I AM BEGINNING TO LOSE OIL. BECAUSE OF THIS, I AM GOING TO TAKE A 50-75% REDUCTION ON THE SALE/TRADE VALUE OF THIS HAUNTED VEHICLE. I AM THE THIRD FAMILY MEMBER THAT SUBARU HAS SCREWED, SURE HOPE THEY TREAT THEIR OTHER LOYAL , DECADES-LONG CUSTOMERS BETTER THAN THEY HAVE TREATED US.
