    WRX Cold Cranking

    So the temps are starting to drop in the morning, mid/high 30's and I've noticed a little more cranking to get the subie to turn over. Researching various post on this forum I assume this will increase as the temps drop further ??? My last car would turn over instantly except at below zero. To recap would you'll classify the WRX as a harder starting car in the cold climate ???? Thanks

    As the temperature drops the battery cannot generate the same current. This ignores the fuel system otherwise but it's reasonably safe to do so since that's highly pressurized (fuel injection). Short answer is yes.

    Thanks. I've owned 8 cylinder/NA cars for the last 14 years. Which turn over instantly, key on in cold weather. Just learning the nuances of the WRX, cranks a it bit more then I expected to get goin.
