That's some BS. They just don't want to deal with it. Make them fix it or send it to someone that can and make them pay for it. No way in hell am I going to scrap my car because someone else broke it trying to do a repair.\n\nOur dealership here is so incompetent they couldn't diagnose a tank of bad gas when I told them "it's probably bad gas, can you please drain the tank and try it?" Nope, kept it a month or so and I had to pay for a rental because at the time I traveled out of town for work a lot.\n\nTurns out (wait for it) IT WAS BAD GAS. Guy tells my wife "that would have been nice to know". I probably would have punched him. I can't take that level of incompetence\/stupidity and just not caring how much you're screwing with someone's life.\n\n\nI talked to the manager at the dealer and he said he had worked for Subaru for many years and he had never seen, or even heard of, something like this happening. It is corporate Subaru, not the dealer, who don't want to repair it. They already did once initially and here we are a year later and that repair failed. Based on that, they don't think it can be properly repaired now. Since there is liability on their part, this is an easier solution for them. They at least gave me a loaner for those 2 months. I am pissed to say the least.
