'05 Recall Notice From My Dealer?
Posted 04 May 2005 - 08:34 PM
Dealer sends me a yellow postcard marked " URGENT SAFETY RECALL" on my new '05 OB 2.5i telling me to call them. I bought it a few weeks ago in Gresham Oregon. The postcard is postmarded Salem, Oregon. Kinda startling.
Called the number on the postcard -it was the dealer- and was transferred to the service department. They wanted my VIN to proceed. I told them goodbye (They would already/still have my VIN after only five weeks.)
Is the dealer/sevice deptartment tying to play me for something: spook me into an extended warrenty or something? Or, at worst, is someone phishing for my VIN?
What's going on here?

No hidden sales pitches here...But I would take my new Subaru back to at least know I was safe.

The problem was with the packing or folding of the side air bags in installation. They have taken care of the problem. So, unless your Outback was one of the first 5000 made, don't worry.

So far Subaru has just given me head gasket in a can and paid me back for my earlier head gasket job.
Recalls are great!
