This was posted on our local forum this morning by our dealerships Parts Manager...Not sure how many of you may have known there is a no cost fix to the ABS concerns for the 02-03 wrx with a 5 speed manual transmission.
The problem is identified when you press on the brakes on uneven pavement, rumble strips at toll plazas, etc., the ABS seems to delay the braking system, so Subaru has a new ABS ECU to take care of this problem.

There is a vin range this applies to.
02 WRX SEDAN JFIGD296*2G500001 - 531625
02 WRX WAGON JFIGG296*2G800001 - 837226
03 WRX SEDAN JFIGD296*3G500001 - 513811
03 WRX WAGON JFIGG296*3G800001 - 814065
This is not a recall, just a fix for a concern from owners. This is a one time free fix to any car in that vin range. And was first started in 2005, so most of the cars have been already fixed, but I do know there are a few new owners of these vehicles on the site and I want to make sure you know that we can fix this at no charge to you.
