 File date02/12/04
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemEngine compartment fire, resulting from oil leaking in engine compartment. There were no injuries and because of proximity of fire department fire was extinguished within 4-5 minutes. Subaru of america (soa) maintains that oil leaked from oil filter and that this is no fault of theirs. Given the history of recalls of this type of vehicle in japan for leaking oil and fires i am not sure that this point has been demonstrated. Soa refused to fix damage and told me to file an insurance claim... Which i have done. Damage is estimated to be $6-10k. Matter will be subrogated to insurance company for settlement.*ak
