Hey all. Im new to the site and finally bought a 2011 wrx a couple weeks ago. I have 650 miles on it and still driving it like a big baby until I get through the break in period.
I have been freaking out a little because I hear a strange sound when I back of the throttle and the engine is braking at around the 2000 rpm level. It only happens in second gear while the engine is braking. I'm not sure how to describe the sound, its not a grind or a knock but more of hiss or buzz type sound, but not really. Possibly a gear meshing type sound. It kind of reminds of what a school bus or ups type truck sounds like at low speeds. Sorry, wish I could describe it better.
My prior car was a speed3 and I know that the boxer engine sounds completely different, but does anyone else experience the aforementioned at 2000 rpm.
