  1. Towndawg is right. Look at the images in this post.
  2. Man, that will be extremely tough to find. Chances are you will never find one if it is oem. The tubing could be replicated but the plastic molding not.
  3. There's one here in San Diego about four miles away from me. The guy was selling the car and I wanted to buy it just for the carrier
  4. You may be overthinking the whole title thing but I see what you're getting at. I think the attorney will see what the issue is and tell you to first give the dealer a chance to fix, then if that doesn't happen, consider what can be done without legal action. As much as lawyers like to make money, they also have to consider what will not make them money.
  5. If you feel like you have nothing to help you, I'd at least try going to get emission tested and get the receipt of FAIL. I'd like to hear what their excuse is..
  6. I think you have already paid those $1000 for the warranty. I believe that is how those scams work; you pay for entire cost of coverage and they "pretend" to cover the same amount you paid. I really think you are being too nice and don't see a good outcome that doesn't cost you more money. If you are mechanically inclined and you feel you got a really good deal on the car then maybe you can replace the the camshaft sensor. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=2417400&cc=1431952&jsn=364&_nck=ZExt1ysfqhqWnq%2BEvUNdS3Txyey60IDtnjPWF5UU9J0BWQv7pvqZbkEUk86%2BAYIh%2F8vGRbRbhjsCbJqXmfoD5tnah0vHFKhqLt1zGQCq8MLZGxGdiHR7gCwm8fUdgUDcLewXy9wg5BHfwlm8GMvMY5cUXuCPW9Td6FgpPN6y27bNWHyZ7BbM1OoSzbnHOf0jdsLmP9YO%2BwDj0DuIocY2zX%2BL5a1H%2FFqDz2%2B6kJKKL%2BuKgqTaS8NFhHPcfx3klKTCuzP1lwYHxQ%2F%2BcTInllLoiLwuLCZDCbkaCcGNOWEbD1NtTwiCVtP5pHEPf8RgF6WfYt6%2BQSItzSG%2BWl3T%2B7UoYzdF8IFpbXTaEYRmIljk1yFEtKnp7ypUhmsvGn6Weh%2Fo
  7. Damn dude sounds like the dealer pulled a fast one on you. I am by no means a lawyer but usually there is some sort of recourse if a licensed dealer sells you a vehicle that is not road ready. *Especially if it does not pass inspection or emissions* Mobile doesn’t show your location but in California I’d contact the dept of consumer affairs if the dealer doesn’t work with you. With that said, get rid of it!!! I should also add if the dealer sold you a specific warranty its most likely because they already knew about the problem and that would be their way of getting out of repairs.

  8. Unfortunately I don’t have a link for them. You’d have to take some measurements for the cross member at the point where your mounting point for skid will intersect. The member isn’t a uniform size throughout. They are called barn handles. I’ve seen a few different sizes on amazon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Great idea with nut and washer. Turned out really well Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That sums up our install nicely. One thing to note is Mcgard has a kit that includes a 21mm key instead of a 19mm. The model is 24554. McGard 24554 Chrome Cone Seat... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002009AOK?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share After the installation I made a few modifications to the carrier to correct our slight misalignment. It now opens/closes very smoothly with almost no effort. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Alright, here is the install of the new-style oem carrier. A huge thanks to hawairish for his patience and expertise on these installs. I would not have been able to have this without his help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Stick with OEM. Anything aftermarket sucks and is inefficient.
  13. Could it be the injectors?
  14. Not all subarus had/have head gasket issues. They’re more likely to consume oil. Something like 1qt/1000 miles if really bad. Mu wife has a forester turbo and it burns about 1qt per 2300miles. An outback would probably be your best bet for fuel efficiency. If you can find one with the 3.6 engine it would be a very solid car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
