"DO NOT BUY THIS CAR"1.0 starson by Snowboarder155
Pros: Nice Interior
Cons: Serious structural issues!!!
Summary: I found out the hard way that this car has serious structural issues regarding the hood. It snowed 21 inches in Howell, NJ overnight right after Christmas and I came out the next morning and the weight of the snow collapsed the hood of the car. All the other cars in the driveway (Toyota, Dodge, aeven a 92 Grand AM) had no damage from the snow, but my brand new 2 week old 2011 Subaru Legacy Limited's hood distorted and collapse. I contacted Subaru and they refuse to fix. This car may be AWD but apparently you cannot let more than a foot of snow accumulate on the hood without it seriously collapsing the hood of the car. I now have to pay $1000 for a new painted hood, completely ridiculous! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!! Also I was not parked underneath anything and I was parked safely in a driveway so nothing could've fallen on the vehicle to cause this huge dent...absolutely ridiculous. I am now taking Subaru to court with all the documentation I have, I even have a police report that clearly states that this car could not hold 21 inches of snow and pictures to prove it. I have been told by 2 seperate mechanics that the hood is made from thin aluminum and with Subaru's new redesign they made the hood way too thin to save on gas mileage...take my advice and do not buy this car!!!
Thanks for your submission!
