Hi all!
My Outback is two years old, and I just came back from having the 36k mile oil change done (at 36,390 miles).
At the shop, the guy shows me that the battery is leaking pretty badly.
Does anybody here know for how long the battery is covered under Subaru's warranty?
This site (Evanston Subaru) here says something like 30 months with no mileage limit - in which case I would still be covered. Is that true?

Thanks a lot for any help, much appreciated!

@Brucey traded a battery recently to a better one of his choice, and got subaru to cough up the money.

I'd just throw a hundred into a far better quality battery, but I do my own service, so I have money to burn!. :) But check with your dealer and your own warranty info. If they replace, I'd Craigslist the replacement and still buy a better battery...

At the dealer right now.
If they replace it under warranty, I'll keep that battery for however long it will last.
If not, I'll get one at Costco. Or are there better places / options?

Thanks again for all the replies!

You probably crossed a line in the dealers driveway that had the 'fine print' of the battery warranty.

Once crossed it's all yours.

The basic 3/36 for new cars will cover your battery.
