Just wondered if anyone who had the recall done for the O2 sensor in the 2000 impreza rs had any problems with the new one. I just got a CEL the other day and it turns out my new O2 that was installed 18months ago is bad. Subaru told me that they won't do anything about it since it's a year after it was serviced. BULLSHIT. I don't think I need to pay almost $300 for a part I don't even know was bad in the first place. For all I know the one they took out was fine. Just wondered if anyone else had the same problem.

I don't have any problems with the new O2 sensor. I've only had one CEL come on since then. I reset the ecu, and it went away. Although, I had one very mysterious stall one day, but I'm not sure if that's because of the ScoobyRacing Torque Chip I have.

Why did you have to take out your ECU for? I had mine done and all that they did was to re-flash it (reprogram it) that is it there was no need for them to take it out I would check into this...

I'm still running the original O2 sensor with 48K miles. Everything was fine until I put in the Borla header a couple months ago. Now I throw a CEL constantly. Reseting the ECU lasts a day then it's back.
