Taking 7 Yr Old Evo to a Nor Cal Dealer

I've been dealing with intermittent ASC & 4DW system service required gremlins for over year. I'm thinking of taking it back to Concord Mitsubishi, which is where I had my first Evo (also a 2011) serviced for the first couple of years. Has anyone out there had any bad experiences with Concord recently? Any other recommendations? I'm open to about anything in Northern California.

Here's my post from last year on the AYC Pump thread.

For the last week while driving home from work I get an ASC SYSTEM SERVICE REQUIRED error after about 30 minutes which disables ASC. On most days I also get an 4WD SYSTEM SERVICE REQUIRED error within 15 minutes later. Turning the engine off and on again clears the errors and leaves no codes. Tarmac light is not flashing. See video below for display before turning the engine off.

I'm thinking of replacing the pump. Not sure if I should go to the dealer or have my usual mechanic do it.

I think nor cal guys didn't have favorable experiences with Concord. Some of them seemed to prefer Daly City. I had good experience with Fairfield
when I had them do my clutch master, headlight level and pulley/serp belt about 4 years ago.

Should be covered under warranty if it's the AYC pump. Good luck

That's good to know. Fairfield is certainly more convenient for me.

Car is seven years old and I really don't care if it's covered by warranty It certainly wouldn't be the most expensive part replaced I'm thinking it could be sensors but really I just want the warnings to stop randomly appearing.

If you are set on going to the dealer cool. Though, here in Nor Cal we have a great guy you may consider that is a big tuner here and does
maintenance for Evos. Search Gary Bains or Bains Tuning on fb or IG.

Thanks good to know.

Update: Talked to Fairfield Mitsubishi and turns out they do not have the proper equipment to diagnose my problem. They told me nearest shops with equipment are Oakland and Sacramento. So I'm going to contact Sacramento Mitsubishi (the one on Fulton) tomorrow.
