Guys: I was about to buy a wrx a few weeks ago, but a few concerns have come to my attn. First I'm worried about the trany! It seems that the problems with 2nd and 3rd gear are not issolated cases, but common problems for may WRX owners. My next concern is the pre catalytic converters that have been breaking up and sending chunks through the turbo. As WRX owners yourselves, I would verymuch appreciate feedback. Thanks for your time!
