So my buddy has an 02 legacy. He bought it last november, then left for marine corps boost camp january 15th. was gone for 3 months, then home for 10 days and then sent to training for another 3 months. the car was started and ran while he was gone, then we changed the oil each time he got back from training. so he has been driving the car for 5 1/2 months and the headgaskets blew. it has 64,xxx miles on it. warrenty ran out at 60,000. he bought it with 61,xxx miles on it. if he knew it only had a 60k warrenty he would not have bought it. they want $1500 to fix it. ( not happening, way to expensive ) after speaking with customer service they wont help us either. i understand a 60k warrenty means 60k but come on. he barely drove the thing and its cooked. a subaru with that low miles should not be blowing headgaskets. sucks for him.....
Did he buy it from a Subaru dealer that told him that it had something more than a 60,000 mile warranty? If not, I can't figure out why this has anything to do with Subaru customer service.
I agree with you that 60K miles is low (for any car) to be blowing head gaskets. But who knows how the previous owner treated the car... and why is that Subaru's fault?
