Failure After J02 Recall: Registry Thread

Proposing we leave an entry here for reference. This is not an argument thread about whether or not you should have participated in a voluntary recall, this is to document that your failure occured using a simple template. Please refrain from calling out your specific dealership. So far, spun rod bearings seem to be the most prevalent catastrophic engine failure.

Ticking, knocking, grinding, low performance.

Failure:
#4 Cylinder Rod Bearing Spun.

Dealership Offering Repair:
Toyota of Santa Cruz says this isn't the result of the Service Recall that was performed.
Quoted $7.5k for used engine w/ 1-year warranty or $8.5k for new short block.
UPDATE: 03/04/2019
Dealership says tech found the ecu codes were recently deleted when they took the car from me. I told them I don't know what's going on. They say, based on that, they are not paying. I'm screwed.

This might give some credence to the concerns that some owners voiced over having Toyota techs work on boxer engines that they are not very familiar with vs. Subaru techs who work on boxers every day. Unfortunately, it isnít as if the Scion owners have the choice to go to a Subaru dealer for this recall.

This is now, officially, my least favorite thread ever. As one who had the recall done about 250 miles ago, I am now, officially, scared out of my mind. Thanks for nothing...

It would be very difficult for a dealership to be crooked. If someone is ripping you (or more likely the warranty department) off it’s the tech. Make something up, pretend it’s fixed, get paid for the work and no one ever knows.

Hard to fake taking an engine out. I don’t think anyone would be dumb enough to fake a federal recall.

Techs work on cars for a living. Some (actually very few) push the limits. No one wants to get fired. If you get fired you don’t get paid at all.

Which I find kind of amusing, since it's a Subaru engine.

I'm convinced they won't even do the work. I'm going to ask the tech to take a photo of the head or engine removed and send it to me. I'll mark the cowl so I know the pic is from my car
