    Default SCI answer to STI Imports

    This was discussed in an earlier thread but I found out from my salesman at Subaru of Calgary that the SCI in an effort to combat the import savings from the US has implemented a $2500 service credit on all canadian STI's. It's not 10K in savings but its something.

    Really? That's cool I guess.

    While we're talking about Subaru of Calgary, I have read on this site that they have somewhat of a bad reputation for service, while their sales team is pretty good. I went there to get my first free oil change and everything went pretty smoothly.

    Just curious how many people have had a bad service experience there and why?

    thanks.

    What exactly is a service credit? Is that another word for warranty, which you get anyway?

    no, regular maintenance credit.

    40,000 km service is like $400 or something.

    So the first big item you can use this service credit is at 40,000, or on average after having owned the car for 2 years? Instead of a reduction in MSRP by $2,500 and the interest savings of financing this over 2 years, you get a "service credit". Weak

    I doubt this counter measure is going to do much. The typical customer that brings their car into the dealership for every minor thing is not the type of person that would import their own vehicle.
