Sold me a 1999 Subaru Forester and somehow hid an engine
rod knock (mechanic said either really heavy oil, too much oil, or another additive). After the first oil change the noise started almost immediately
rod knock (mechanic said either really heavy oil, too much oil, or another additive). After the first oil change the noise started almost immediately. Funny that he only offers a 1000 mile warranty, now you know why. Took it to the dealership right after that oil change (right from my mechanic who has done many oil changes on my other subaru) to get it changed again to eliminate my mechanic for certain.
Also the milage on all the paper work didn't match the milage on the odometer and the owner was not concerned about it (134941 on the paperwork, 135095 on the odo when I left the lot). He said he would still honor 1000 miles from when I took it off the lot, but in court you can bet he would only stand on the paperwork number.
Finally they called me 10 days after I paid all that I owe on the car asking where my payment was. I paid for everything except about $400 which was due 10-1 (paid 9-29). I get a call 10-10 wonder where the payment was. Looked up on my account online and was staring at a canceled check deposited by them on 9-30.
They also had the price of the car listed online $150 cheaper than he started at with me at the dealership.
