Name: Adam Gilgis

Make: 2005 Subaru Legacy GT

Mileage: ~58,000

Time Out Of Use: 10 days

Problem And Likely Cause: Blown turbocharger. No explanation yet, although the dealer said oil level was within normal limits and there were no signs of owner neglect.

Modifications: None.

Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): Yes.

Reason Given For Denial (if applicable): None yet, we will see.

Your Story: GT turbo went out a week ago today. I got the P0011 and P0021 CEL's followed by a hellacious grinding noise coming from the turbo. Limped home with the hazards on, towed it to the dealership later in the week.

I was up front with the dealer in that I was paranoid about Subaru of America denying the warranty claim based on what I've read on the various boards. Late last week they did a partial tear down on the engine, said the infamous banjo bolt was fine and unclogged, but there was no evidence of neglect on my part and the engine was only a half a quart low on oil. I'll bring my maintenance records and receipts with me when I pick it up. I am cautiously optimistic that my claim will be covered. (cut and pasted from CSi)
