Couple of questions about block heaters:
- Is the OEM heater the best or only way to go? The one for my Subaru Legacy costs about $110 excluding installation.
- The car is brand new. I could probably save some money on installation at a good independent shop, but on the Legacy there’s a lot of parts under the car that need to be removed and reinstalled. I’m concerned that the dealer could question any future warranty claim that involved a part the independent handled. Should I just bite the bullet and pay the dealer’s price to avoid future questions?
