Welcome to my land Dengee.

Dealership claimed at first that scored camshafts were not their fault. 400+ miles later i spun a rod bearing. Mind you not since day 1 after the recall I've been in contact with SOA about the issue and they wouldn't back me. I bring it to another dealership and they rip the motor apart after receiving the okay from a Subaru of New England rep, they noticed oil passages were clogged from RTV.

This was back in February of this year. Still haven't received my car back.

Since you found the oil passages were clogged, is Subaru going to back the cost of the repair now??

It took me 3 months to get them to back the cost of my repairs. It's not an easy process but it took a rep from Subaru of New England for them to take responsibility. I had another dealership tear the motor apart and note that the repairs done were due to the recall and still have the initial dealership not take responsibility.

I think i might be meeting this fate also. Car just threw a code with maybe 150-200 miles after the recall. Stalled out once and is throwing p000b code.
