Call scion and get a case started. In every case so far scion is covering a loner while the car is waiting for parts. The generall consensus is you shouldn't be driving the car.

Why not?

vin : 7074xx
location: TN

Just figure i would add to the list here. These problems didn't start until a little over 1k miles. The idle would just dip a bit but it never triggered a CEL. The car now has 1,800~ miles and it's getting worse.

CEL comes off and on along with the slip light. Rough idle of course, but i have noticed that if the slip light comes on the idle smoothes out instantly. There is definately a power loss as well at times, and usually it's when the slip light does come on.

The car is the 6AT and i noticed when the CEL and/or slip light is on the transmission is very clunky. When you slow down it will bang into 2nd gear right before you stop. It won't rev match using the paddle shifters either. (i'm guessing it does it normally?)

I've scanned the car and code P0019 popped up.

The car will be taken to the shop this week and i will follow up with what happens.

Typically 45 minutes of a low-ranking guy's time to drive across town and back does not cost $1500. Nor would doing it on a transporter.
No, this vehicle was in Glendale, CA....and the dealer there was asking $7K over MSRP when I called a few days prior to my dealer trading him.

It's a Subaru....they don't have "pure price". Is that like a "no haggle"?

There are a whole host of electrical and computer components a car cannot start/run without that aren't considered "powertrain" by most warranties.

In a case such as the CEL on the FRS and BRZ then I doubt you'd have to argue it b/c of the problems already showing up.....but down the line, let's say this is a tolerance issue that may not develop on some cars until past the 36K mile point, it may be a big hassle and expensive repair bill. I'm not saying that's definitely the case....just that it could be.

HTH,
Sean

I'd like to see the exclusion in writing. I don't believe you are correct.

Have rough idle for the past 2k miles but no CEL. Today however the car bogged on a stop light. Tried to take off as normal and car didnt respond, gave more gas and the car moved after about 5 seconds.

Is there any point in taking it in to the dealer right now? Theres no official fix or TSB so ill basically be going in to argue with my dealer or waste my time with no responsive fixes?

Im not stock either and while i can flash back to stock i hope my dealer isnt a idiot and blames this on my exhaust

Yep the price is what it is, they won't lower it, but they aren't supposed to raise it either.

I don't have my paperwork yet. Do you have the FRS? Look at yours. Maybe Toyota's warranty is different than Subaru's. Someone stated Toyota had a 100K mile warranty on powertrain....Subie's was only 60K.

Can't speak for Toyota, but Scion clearly states 60K or 60 months.

Powertrain Warranty
This warranty covers repairs needed to
correct defects in materials or
workmanship of any component listed
in the next two columns and supplied
by Scion, subject to the exceptions
indicated under “What Is Not Covered”
on pages 13-14.
Coverage is for 60 months or
60,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
