very interesting.........

so i took my scooby to the dealer today for an idling problem. i bought the car 2.5 months ago and it came with the remaining balance of the factory warrenty plus subaru added security. so i pull in the service drive and the guy takes down my info and does a VIN check. the guy tells me the added security is not under my name and tells me to call subaru. so i call subaru and they tell me i cant transfer the added security to my name because i am the fourth owner of the car and the name on the added security is under the original owners name. but im still lucky to have the 5 year/ 60 warrenty. but this is where the story gets interesting. i asked the service guy to look up the history of repairs on car. turns out in june of 06 that the block of the engine was replaced . haha i wasnt sure how to react. so i guess my black beauty has been around the block a few times !Cry!

9 miles on mine when bought. But seriously, it had an engine replaced? Is that all that has been done then? Or that was just the biggest shocker?

i knew i was gonna be the fourth owner, but the fact that it has a warrenty is the reason why i bought it. and it was so cheap. but the car runs great. honestly cant complain about anything, cept the idling problem but it doesnt happen that often

and may i add that it has a clutch with less than 10k miles
