Unreal how only the moderators get to voice their insults, either subtly or directly. The moderator started it, not me. He is the one who insulted me by stating that I did not know how to drive and that taking my case to the sourts was the wrong thing to do. Who is this guy to tell anyone what is wrong and right. I never let insults like that get away from me. Perhaps he is the one that needs to shape up or ship out. Perhaps you too should have read the thread more closely, then you would have seen that I am reacting to his action. You to are reacting, chill, reread, blame the originator.
Look, Subaru told me and the dealer there is no fix. Ergo, there is no fix. What do you suggest I do, call Subaru back and state, "hey this moderator on this WRX website said there is a fix, he obvisoulsy knows more than you, here's his web name, you know him right, he's correct, so fix it?" Are you kidding me? Subaru drew the line, I chose to cross it.
This is not the decl noise, reead the thread, it's the AM shudder.
In additon, your logic with respect to others having the shudder at 30k and still no more breakdowns is flawed. Just beacuse it ain't broke does not mean that it won't in the future. With respect to the number of peoiple with the problem, What is your sample size? Is it statisically significant? I doubt you know the answer to both questions. The safer bet is to get a new car, not wait and see what will happen.
