Subaru Mechanic: tamaz, Subaru master technician replied 10 months ago

Your vehicle should be included in this extension,a call to Subaru may be necessary if for some reason you did not receive the letter but this should come up in your vehicle inquiry when you checked into the dealer for service.I would not give a o.k to repair till you ask about this first
