    Hey i have a 2013 wrx premium and i noticed that when i turn the wheel all the way right or left it makes a whirring noise. Is that normal or should i be bringing it into the dealer?

    you mean full locked? all theway right or let, that's you strainging your power steering pump. every car will do that.
    unless you're refering to cold starts on cold mornings which i would assume is normal. Subarus do make a lot of noises in the cold

    Every car with power steering will make a very noticeable noise when you crank the steering all the way to the left or right as the pump is straining against the mechanical limits of the steering to try and turn the wheels more.

    Hey man, better to be a little paranoid now than not be when there is a problem with your PS pump(thanks Subaru).
