I seem to be having a major problem with my wife's 05 Forester XT (33,000 miles). During a recent out of town trip, the cruise light blinked and check engine light came on. We were also experiencing a lack of power in the hills and some high RPM's before the AT would go ahead and shift properly. We curtailed our vacation and took it in to the local dealer who diagnosed a cam and/or timing problem. The dealer then went on to say we were due for an oil change. This was true. I've been overseas and my wife last changed her oil at 26,000 miles (now at 33000). I told them to go ahead and change it which they did but they were unable to fix the original problem. I had to return home to go back overseas the next day so was forced to drive the 450 miles back. But once we left the dealership, we were smoking like crazy! My wife took it in to the local dealer who said the turbo was shot and subaru would not fix it without maintenance records. So does anybody know if this all sounds legitimate? I am overseas for another 10 months and am trying to work this out long distance. When I'm home, I generally change our vehicles oil myself. My wife just fell behind. Am I getting the run around here? Or is this all our fault? Sorry for the long post but any response is appreciated.
