    2011 WRX New buyer questions

    Hey all,

    So I am new to this forum but have been an active member of another forum that I'm a member of. I am looking at getting a 2011 WRX Hatchback that I found in my area after selling my other 2 cars to prepare for the coming birth of my first child. My question for you all is thus, is there anything in particular about this year WRX that I should know about or be worried about. Also have their been any recalls that I should be aware of and ask about. Thanks guys for the help. I'm hoping that I will soon be a proud new owner of a used 2011 WRX and will be able to join you all in the modification and custom builds.

    V/R
    Scott

    Nothing major to worry about. A lot of 3rd gen cars seem to be prone to getting a leak at the hose between the throttle body and the intercooler, but it is easily fixed.

    Unless I'm completely forgetting something, I don't think there have really been any major widespread issues.

    I have an '11, it has been great so far. Issues that have come up were minor, the homelink mirror fell off (warranty), the center console lid stopped closing (warranty), and a hose for the power steering leaked (warranty). Nothing that kept the car from working or giving me any issues.

    First and foremost, congratulations on the procreation. Any issue I've had with my 11, besides the windows not going up fast enough and some rattles, was of my own creation.
