Re: how Subaru behaves

It's not fair to ascribe to "Subaru" how a dealer behaves or even how all dealers in the U.S. behave.

There have been ownership changes in the past few years, especially since GM started to divest its interest, eventually fully divesting it with Toyota Motor buying shares in parent company Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI).

en.wikipedia.org
reports that FHI is currently in a partial partnership with Toyota Motor Corporation, which owns 16.5% of FHI.

But why take the chance?

If nothing else, it is a question to ask when considering a car.

No, really. Take it from me, and I have possibly the best reason of anyone in the country right now to be biased against them.

They make OUTSTANDING cars!!! They really screwed up on this one particulr model/year, though, and two of their dealerships, have acted inappropriately, IMO, one in the way they talk to a customer, one in the way they treat a customer's expensive car.

Remember, I've had 3 of these things before the new model, and they were the epitome of insane performance coupled with incredible reliability.

The 08 STi? Well, it's just insane how they're brushing off a problem that's obviously widespread, and usually their fault without saying why, and in a few cases, such as mine, not their fault at all despite the failure being identical to the many others.

Or to put it another way, I've got nothing but love and respect for the folks in Japan who design and build these things, but nothing but contempt for their Stateside representatives.

Ok, I will take a look. But I will ask about their service department.

Good luck with your pursuit of this.

SI is NOT iHub. Different business models.

Message 27338113


Sorry for posting this, but I do not like the way some posters on iHub control the flow of information on their boards. It's a form of manipulation.

Some moderators on iHub delete your posts if they smell a hint of negativity. Now thats a joke.

SI moderators can not delete messages like they can on iHub. Only an SI admin can delete your message on SI.

Bob,

Just came back from no internet access for 6 months or so to find Elmer in charge of the AMD board.

Subject 36138

How in the heck did that he get that position?

Seems sort of like Godzilla running the Monster Extermination League.

What, is he a diehard INTC guy?

I don't recall the specifics of the change, but I don't think I've ever made such a change without either getting asked to do so by the then-current mod or if someone volunteers to take over for a long-absent one.

Max (I call everyone from Oz Max and because the Brits still think I'm in Kansas, they call me Dot or Dorothy),

Subject 11560

Is that the company? Long-dead board, but if it's the right one and you post there, that should get others to participate. Or feel free to start a board for it.
