Hey guys, just got my Subaru Wednesday, a white '06 WRX. (I'm making the switch from a '00 eclipse ...shudder...) She's a thing of beauty and I'm so glad I decided on it. It was between this and an '06 Mazda RX-8, and I got the car that I liked better. Always wanted an AWD turbo, so here I am .
I've been reading for a day or so now, and I see a recurring theme of bad trannys in the WRX..anything I should be concerned with? I don't plan on heavy modifications for a long time, maybe just some aesthetics and a good tune. I searched for a thread about it, but didn't come away totally satisfied. I definitely don't want to ruin this car. (I realize my transmission's life is going to be based on how I drive it, but I'm just trying to cover my ass )
Wow long first post..thanks in advance guys and I look forward to getting more involved here. Great forum.
