Wish me luck. Going in for the recall job.

Originally I had been scheduled for October but got a call a few days ago that they have a spot this Friday.

So.... hopefully all things go fine. It's going to a Subaru dealer to get fixed.
Am I a bit worried, yeah can't lie. 92k on the clock, bone stock.

Hopefully in a few weeks I'll report back on that "good" recall thread. I wonder what kind of loaner car I'll get.

That's all.

I wonder if they have any used Hondas? You can always ask...


Good luck.

Good Luck! My car only took 3.5 days for the recall work. It's still running strong after a 1000 miles! Hopefully all goes well for you too!

If it is a mini van go find your local twin owners and show them who is boss of the stop lights.

If it's a grand caravan I don't mind. Especially if it's the supercharged V6.
My buddy back in high school drove the family van. It keept up with the mustangs gt's so it's not that bad.
No one expected a grand caravan to be that quick.

I'll be sure to do that with my co worker's '14 FRS. I'll even get it on video.
