Took the car in this morning to have them check out the alignment, she pulls a little to the right.
Just got a call that the rear shocks are leaking, and when they turned the car on it started knocking. "connecting rod knock" as they called it.
I didn't hear anything when I brought it in this morning. He said the knock wasn't audible from inside the vehicle. This doesn't seem like the same failed bearing knock that many have been experiencing, does it? I assumed it would be plain as day if that happened.
Wouldn't this hurt performance? I hadn't felt any difference..
Haven't had any dealings with this dealer yet, but the guy behind the counter was friendly enough. Just gave me the update and said he's putting some calls in to get a loaner car lined up, and will get back to me later on.
If the engine in deed DID fail, then here are my specifics:
09 WRX Hatchback
Build date: 8/08
I'll keep you all posted.
What's the general consensus been, insist on a new turbo (shared oil system) and extended warranty?
