    13 WRX Water in Tail Lights

    I have have my 13 wrx 5 door for about a month now and have found water droplets inside of the real tail lights, anyone else have this happen to them? Also was heading up an entrance ramp this weekend and noticed that my brakes held on for about a second to give me time to let out my clutch and not roll backwards...I hope this is normal!

    Some have noticed condensation in the rear tail lights, some in the headlights. Subaru says its not their fault.



    Yes, the car has brake assist. It will hold the car in place for a couple of seconds when you are on a hill & letting the clutch out to prevent the car from rolling back.

    The brake thing is normal, its actually a "feature" built into the car. Some people love it and others hate it.
    Moisture in the lights is normal to a degree. It shouldn't actually fill up, that would indicate a leak. But some misting over of the lens happens when it gets cold and the humidity of the air inside the light condenses on the coldest part of the light, and that would be - you guessed it- the lens.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    some places were supposed to reseal the light assembly. but even if they do that theyre only going to do it once and of course theyre going to half a** it since its warrenty work and no tech wants to work for free
