    2013, too problematic?

    So I am ordering my '13wrx in November and am totally ecstatic. I have been looking through these forums and have been seeing a lot of people claiming they have problems with the car. My question is, does the newest gen of WRXs have a lot of problems?

    I picked up my '13 WRX DGM hatch earlier this month. It has no interior rattles. It's really quick, really fun to drive. It took me some time to get used to it but 25 days in I think it is awesome. I got the stock radio thinking I would just replace it, but I run my ipod through it most of the time and I think it sounds fine. The only issue I have with it is the homelink mirror which was installed at the dealership. It is really loose. It doesn't bounce around while driving but it has way too much play in it when you go to adjust it. I will have them look at that during the first service.

    I bought a Subaru sunscreen for "Imprezza", it didn't fit. Dealer returned my money. Went with the 'heatshield' brand and it fits perfect.

    Went to a dealership in NOVA for a state inspection. They inspected the car but forgot to put the sticker in the window. Wondering what they'll forget to do next time, I will probably go somewhere else.

    Curious as to why you're not ordering a '14 in November?

    I'd take the mirror to get replaced. My ended up falling off. The screws are really soft and will strip. I took my and they replaced the screws and its fine now. I've had my 13 for a few months and besides the slight rattles I love it.

    No...The 13's have just been purchased by people that like to complain about them

    Also, if you are going to be purchasing in November, it will likely be a '14.

    See I was hoping that it won't be a 14, I know it's all speculation.. But I heard and seen rumors of the '14 and not interested in it at all.. But nothing is set in stone obviously, so let's just say I will be ordering my WRX in November haha

    I don't see what "problems" you are talking about. Don't buy a car you will have regrets about later.

    I am for sure not going to have regrets, I've been trying to get a Subaru for 7 years now. I just want to know what I should be looking out for, if anything.

    I say, if you look for something, it'll happen. Just drive and enjoy it. It's a mechanical piece of equipment and anything can happen. Overall, you usually hear of complaints, and the rest of the 90% who are too busy enjoying their car won't bother posting anyways. Reality.
