    MD New 02 WRX Owner

    Hey just here introducing myself to the crowd.

    I purchased a used 2002 Pearl White WRX last night and loving the beast already. Paid $14,900 cash for the thing. Two minor problems I'm having with it however but one I searched already for. 1. The shifter bogs at 1st gear occasionally, dont know why, and 2. gas fumes in the cabin during a cold start but I figured that out from a fellow member..

    Anyways, hope to learn a great deal more about my rex as time goes on.

    Also, I'm from 7thgencivic, anyone too that trailed over here?

    Yea he is right, wrx's don't like 1st too much but i read somewhere in this forum that theres some combination of tranny fluid you can mix that helps a little bit, your lucky you live in gaithersburg, you live right by turboXS hehe i know there are meets at whitemarsh mall in the park and ride just north of baltimore every so often, i've yet to go to one though

    there was a TSB put out for the gas smell. The fix requires removing the intake manfiold though, good luck getting them to do that.

    Welcome to the boards.....hopefuly by having so MD members on here sooner or later I'll get a wave from a wrx owner.....

    As for the meets our Mid-A forum isnt overly active by any means. I'd suggest going to nasioc for the local forum as they have alot more people over there and arrange meets far more often. Also www.midaap.com/forum is a local forum (not a busy one) that posts up meets and other stuff. Good luck with the car and enjoy.
