#97 of 116 recall, ECU reset
Jun 13, 2002 (6:37 am)
Have you disconnected your battery for 2hrs and reconnected and tried driving? It could need an ECU reset. Another thing is it may be covered under the new recall for ECU upgrades that some of the owners are getting.

Thanks.... I'll try the battery disconnect, and mention the ECU recall at next week's dealer visit.

You can call SOA on their 800# with your VIN and they'll tell you if your car is covered by the recall.

rexaroo---I don't think the aluminum hood is a good idea. I have a lot of experience with dealing with aluminum bodied cars of the "classic" variety, and between mechanics and passers-by it causes a lot of unintentional damage.
A gentleman's bet says this AL hood will disappear next round due to complaints.
I think the use of aluminum is good but not in that part of an automobile. Next to doors, it's the worst part I think, and if you've ever tried working aluminum in repairs, it isn't easy. Harder than fiberglas I think.

They are just replaced.

How much is that, I'm curious.
maybe it's not a big deal if not too expensive.
#103 of 116 no more expensive

Than any other hood. It's the price you pay for a sports car $23.5K.

complaints (if any) on the aluminum hood. The reception has been so good that it has been incorporated into the 2K3 Forester. Weight, heat displacement, etc.
