Okay so I am going to pick up this Forester in a week or so, and I have to drive it back home from pick up which is around 650km. I know there’s no hard and fast rule on cambelts and waterpumps but I don’t want it to just die on the way home. Would you recommend getting those parts replaced as soon as I get it home to avoid any disasters? Any constructive advice appreciate
Hi Guys I just bought a 2006 legacy GT Wagon through a classified listing. for 6500 The seller said to me through text that the cambelt was done 2.5 years ago at around 110,000km by the dealer (economy cars) they purchased the car off. I took their word (stupid i know but they seemed honest), however i found a sticker stating the belt was done in 2011 at 105,000km. Car is now at 144,000km and subarus timing belt change interval recommendation is 105 months.... so needs to be replaced nowish I have tried to either get the car back to them, have them pay for the belt or even offered to sell on their behalf. However they wont budge saying they just told me what the dealer told them and they have done nothing wrong and that i bought the car 'as is where is' i didn't sign anything stating this or even agree to it verbally. they have now said they are 'busy people' and 'stop harassing us' consumer protection NZ pretty much said i would have to take them to court since they are not a business and i wont have many rights and hope the judge rules in my favour. has anyone had a similar experience or have any recommendations as to what i can do?
