yeah, I definitely need to follow up on this. I am so glad I found out about it here. I did finally find the TSB on NHTSA site cooling link but it does not give any specific info. I also looked up the recalls so I can ask about them as well. The good thing is that the car only had one previous owner and it was (mostly) serviced by the dealer I bought it from so the service history should be accessible. This is also the same dealer where I had my old Subaru serviced so I DO have a longstanding (9 years) relationship with them - should account for something!!
on the warranty - yeah, I agree. I bought a Subaru for their reliablity

So, we just purchased an 02 OB, and it has about 50k miles, if i remember correctly... we're scheduled to p/u wednesday, and we have to decide whether to take the extended warranty on it- it was 4 years/32 k miles, for $1500.... we originally thought, no.. but i see there are a few problem spots, and i am worried that we will regret not taking it....
what would you do???

Is it a Subaru warranty? Or an aftermarket one?
My concern is that at 50k miles, the bumper-to-bumper warranty already expired, so there might be a lot of exclusions, i.e. anything that may have developed between 36k and 50k miles.
With a lapse in coverage, it may not be worth it.
We do have a Subaru Gold warranty for our 2002 Legacy (though we've never used it).

i thiiink its aftermarket, despite being offerred by the guy at the subaru dealership.... he gave us a list of what it did cover, and couldn't give a list of what it didn't....
u think it did have an extended coverage that ends in a few months or something, so i dont think there'd be a lapse... does that change your suggestions??? m

Why? Because it was too long?
I dunno. Subaru has a CPO program. I would search for a different car, or get that one and pass on the warranty.
