on a cold morning, i started the car and noticed a strong smell of gasoline in the cabin when the heater was turned on. when looking under the hood, i could not find the source of this leak. i called the local dealer, who told me there is a technical service bulletin out for this problem, but that they cannot fix it for free since my car is out of warranty. in fact, they quoted me $250 for the work! now to me, leaking gasoline for any reason seems to be a serious safety concern, and i have talked to several other early 2002 model year wrx owners who have had the same problem. i would hope that subaru of america would go out of their way to fix this problem for free since all it would take is a stray spark to have a fire and serious legal action brought against them. if they know this is a problem, i would hope they would fix it for free to ensure the safety of their cars.*ak
