The fact that they didn't notify 1. the cops, and 2. the owner is highly suspect.
Notify SOA immediately, and tell them you want an internal investigation of this dealership.
I imagine you'll need a lawyer before this is done, remember THEY have one, and you should never go to a gun fight carrying a knife.

I took the '80 brat to the dealership to have them fix the tranny and come to find out its been missing for four days. FOUR DAYS and nobody called me or anything. Stolen right frome the dealership. I have to file some poilce files, and hope that it is found. my computer has been down, but I'll try to keep you posted. What do I do If they don't find it? sue? or have them cut me a deal on a new STI? or what. I worked 5 months to get the brat in my name, because it was kinda taken without asking, and I ended up with it, now its gone.
Uhhhhhhh, "it was kind of taken without asking" Now you know how the previous owner feels. Maybe someone "kind of took it back without asking". I'm not implying that YOU did anything wrong, but I would be more cautious in the future with purchasing vehicles that don't have free and clear titles.

If it's the orginal owner that got it back, good for him. If he has his orginal title, I don't think you could say he stole it :cool: Just watch out beacuse if it is, someones going down for grand theft auto. That does not look good on the perminate record. Get yourself a lawyer, definately. You should at least be able to get your money back from someone. That situation has to suck, I'm sorry to hear you are in it man.
Just imagine you are the orginal owner trying to find your subaru, then you spot it at a dealership! Damn if it were me all hell would break loose!
Remember don't kind of take anything! Who was your friend to sell some one elses subaru in the first place? There are police impound yards for stolen or found vehicles, not I found it sales :-p

Since it was abandoned... I assume that the previous owner didn't want any "social" or monetary considerations for the car.... taxes, tags etc. ... they were fulfilled by the finder and ownership was legally granted
He now owns the car regardless of the circumstances prior, and now has title to the car... I assume.
Don't you think he is now entitled to every courtesy and effort, as far as the rest of the world is concerned, in getting the car back?
I wouldn't count on any more than the value of the car. The best would be to nail them to tha wall for crooked dealings!
Providing my assumptions are correct... I wish the best of luck! Mary

Expect to have to fight for the value of the car unless it is found. If it was an inside job, the cops should be all over the place. Call the cops as soon as posible and if the dealer doesn't want to cooperate, ruin their reputation in the local paper.
