It is an SOA warranty - they stop offering the 36,000/3 year warranty past the 100,000 mile mark. I bought this car with 91,000 on it so they HAD to offer me the warranty. Knowing this is a performance car, I was like YEP give me that 1,800 dollar warranty because I KNEW it would be needed at some point in the next 36,000. I'm not that
dumb, 91,000 miles on an 05 WRX - ya, there is a chance that something is going to give even if I drive the car like a grandmother and maintain it like it's made of gold. I figured, better them pay for something huge like the turbo going than me.
And yes, it is a warranty rep coming to look over my car and make sure I haven't neglected, abused, raced - what have you.
And the people in the service department have been more than nice to me. I think they'll put in a good word considering it is being worked on at the same dealership that sold it to me. But seriously, not that a good word should even matter at this point. 8 weeks in, stock, had the oil changed on the regular scheduled maintenance interval. I should be good.
edit: I think I'm just fretting and irritated because the warranty people were supposed to check it out on Tuesday and it's Thursday and they still haven't checked it out + the engine might have some BIG parts needing to be replaced. So I might not have my wrx back for a few weeks. This is where the irritation/fretting/and ranting spawns from. I know I shouldn't be worrying, but I am.
- I'm seeing civics with fart cans drive by and I can't mess with them in the forester.
