problem #1

Mar 242014

BRZ Sport-tech 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 13,670 miles


-engine starts running ruff -engine light & traction light come on -engine starts running worse, even stalls while idling -read about the identical reoccurring problem online (with identical car/mileage) -takes over a week to get apt a Subaru dealership -suggest to dumbfounded Subaru Canada to read repetitive stories online about same issues -Subaru calls to let me know my car is ready -pick up car with engine light, traction light and new error message reading my emergency brake was set up incorrectly -Subaru tries more options, calls me again to pick up incomplete car -Subaru ignore suggestions and runs diagnostic tests for a month of failed tries -Subaru decides to replace ECM (my first suggestion) -Subaru breaks dash pieces while working on ECM

-currently waiting for new dash pieces -been without my new car for 2 months... And counting

Asked GM for a contact to Subaru and she gives me an 1-800#, then a bilingual customer rep and gives her a fake title.....
