Yes I understand that mate. Cheers tho.

Invoking the statutory warrantee, as it is legislation, may encourage them to act more so than the manufacturers warrantee.

Hopefully they will decide to fix the problem, as opposed to dealing with the regulatory body....that I will approach...after I determine it actually is an isolated fault of course.

Not that I'm disregarding the helpful input provided so far, in all the posts above...still have to confirm it for myself though.

Oh btw,

The statutory warrantee is 3 months from the date of purchase...for this car.

Based on the year of manufacture and Km's.

There are of conditions where the statutory warrantee is less based on vehicle age and Km's.

FYI see the link ..

I think you'll find that stat warranty is for items deemed to make the car unroadworthy or mechanically unsound.

Overall performance of the vehicle as decided by you the consumer does not fit the requirements.

If it is still in new car warranty then take it to Melville Subaru and make sure it is lodged with Subaru Australia in writing so once the warranty period is over and they still haven't fixed it you have recourse (assuming there actually is a problem)

G,day mate. Did you buy this car used? I ask this because it shouldn't be having this issue due to the age of the car. Unless has it been in an accident or the system didn't get enough compressor oil from new? A/C gas pressure may be too low or too high. It may have a faulty valve or minor leak? I'd advise taking it to an auto electrician,A/C specialist ask for the following. Vent outlet temp test. Leak test. And compressor check. Check and record high/low temps and pressures. Evac the system for 1 hr. Check vacuum leaks over 20mins. If all checks out and after necessary repairs made, top up compressor with 30ml of recommended oil. And regas the system via head pressure not capacity. Good luck mate.

Thanks a lot stealth....that's a very informative post, I really appreciate it..

Yes I'm the second owner..bought from a Subi dealer.

It is still under new car warrantee .... and then has a year of Subaru Assured Warrantee.

I was planning on doing that exact thing if all else fails...but I wouldn't know where to start...

Now though I can up skill....well up jargon at least...and go in with a bit of an idea.

Scary....thanks for that....I see what you mean.

I'll look into it further....

I've heard a couple of good things about Melville Subi already...just at random from searching posts...even one on true local or another business directory....slayed another Subi dealer for a reason I'll not mention but said Melville Subi were great guys....

Is it general consensus that these the are best Subi dealers to deal with?...

Haha to trueee..

I stand corrected.

Exert taken from public.wsu.edu

"...people often misspell the related word “warrantee” rather than the correct “warranty.” “Warrantee” is a rare legal term that means “the person to whom a warrant is made.” Although “guarantee” can be a verb (“we guarantee your satisfaction”), “warranty” is not. The rarely used verb form is “to warrant.”

Done this to all 3 of mine when I've had engines out made no difference . I didnt find it that noticeable and dont feel a power drop on the B4 or RS but do on the RX , Id say he has a different issue if its so noticeable . Wonder if the ac idle up solenoid is blocked or faulty had this on my GTR and it cycled the compressor every 20 or so seconds and was really noticeable till I swapped it out.
