Welcome All 08 WRX Owners
Hey all, just got my WRX two days ago and love it. Im new to the subaru sceen and look forward to all the great rides I take in it.
Well I hate to say it, but I'm a victim of a mall parking lot. I had my 08 wrx 2 months, and some ******* hit me in the drivers front quarter panel with their door and put a nice dent in my subie. Of course I didn't see it happen, so it's going to cost me 600 bucks to get it fixed. I hate the thought of any filler on my car. Does anyone know what a new panel might cost?
Hey guys im also new to WRX. I picked up my 08 in May and its a great thing. I have the new SPT catback. The only experience i have with these cars is my friends 02 which is pretty sick..or was.. he sold it. The capabilities of the car are endless. If anyone has an idea or where to get a new grill i would love to know cause i dont feel like paying 300 plus at the dealer for it
Whats up, Jeff fron NJ. Wht 08wrx 5door. Subaru noob since april but fairly experienced on the track n streets. Started with underspoiler kit, SPT CB. [Totals 08 not at fault] in 09wrx and I advise everyone to do the same.
Hey guys. New to Subies, but have been working on my older truck for a while. bone-stock 08 grey 4-door. Looking to kit the car, some wheels, a catback, and other things as the funds become available.
Hey hey! Wanted to join this group to get some feedback from other 08 WRX owners. I've had mine since Feb 2009 (good deal on a leftover 08 model). Since then, honestly, I have had nothing but problems. As I type this, I'm actually on day 26 of it being in the shop. I've had turbo go out and get stranded. The whole interior rattles nonstop. And the latest problem, is that the check engine light comes on, it 'rumbles' (i'm a 200 lb guy and it shakes me like a roller coaster). Compression checks fine, changed spark plugs, yadda yadda... Subaru can't figure it out, and I'm speaking with lawyers now about Lemon Law stuff. I'm torn, because this car is amazing (when it works), but it hasn't really inspired any confidence in me, yet everyone else I know with Subarus love them. So I was curious your opinions.... did I truly just get unlucky and receive a lemon? Are these cars problematic for you? Would you buy another?
PART 2 - (sorry, 1000 character limit)
The truth is that really this is the only car I wanted, hence I bought it. But obviously I need the car to work. And to top it off, the Subaru Forester that they gave me as a loaner..> DIED on me yesterday!! Not really feeling much faith in Subaru at this point so I really would like some other opinions as this is my first time around the block with Subaru. Thanks everyone. Much appreciated.
