If you have not yet contacted an attorney, secure one ASAP. Do not post anything more about this incident. Follow your attorney's instruction.

On another note, this is PRECISELY why I NEVER take my car to dealerships, even new.

You have every chance of getting a new car back and one hell of a story to tell. I'm glad you're ok to enjoy that. Maybe even some monetary compensation on top from the dealer for your trouble and drama. Good luck.
Hope the OP didn't mod the car otherwise Subaru might find loopholes to not give him a new car.

Holy crap, that is magnitudes worse than the car fire my 92 GT-Four experienced. I guess when they make these cars light and not much insulation there's no stopping flames. I remember when it happened to me, a splush sound, followed by the same kinds of things OP described. Worse feeling in the world when your pride and joy is going up in smoke. I know that feel bro.

Keep us informed as to what Subaru or your insurance company does. Had my fuel pump replaced 2 weeks ago, smelled gas for a little while but went away. I was worried about catching on fire too.

Wonder if this is going to make Jalopnik (they're obsessed with blogging about burning or pre-crisped Ferraris)...
