Question Asked: Timing Belt-Tensioner
April 17, 2009, 05:50 PM
On 1-20-09 I purchased a 1998 Subaru Forester (97K miles) from a local Subaru dealership. Prior to purchase, they replaced the water pump and timing belt. On 4-6 the tensioner broke apart causing the timing belt to come off and ruined the engine. The dealership accepts no responsibility. I now have a $6,000 car loan and no car.
Should the tensioner have been replaced?
