Hello! I am new to the forum - I own a 2007 WRX Wagon. I just bought the car in November with a 3 month warranty - so any bug it coughs up I am trying to fix. I already took it in for e brake trouble and brakes squeaking. I took it in and told them a noise was coming from the rear - they called and said it was power steering. Took the car back and drove it few more days - NO WAY is it power steering. Return the car and drove with the technician so he could hear what I am hearing.
Finally after some warm up he figured the sound was coming from the differential rod/fluid and it probably just needs changed.
I did some research and listened to others but it doesn't really sound like that - it sounds like a loud rub. It only happens on sharp slow turns/coming from a stop AFTER the car has been driving for good 10 minutes.
So I took the car back because he said he needs to call around to find out what sort of fluid it needs and its not a big deal - its been 2 weeks and I haven't heard back (gonna call here tomorrow) just wanted to get your input on what you guys think??
I don't want to keep driving if it IS a big deal. I just hope I didn't buy a lemon
Video is dark but you can hear the sound...
