I am the proud owner of a 08 dark grey WRX sedan. I got it equipped with the grill and short throw. This is my first subaru so I'm not really familiar with how the car is suppose to ride. FYI, I'm coming from a Mustang GT.
1. Is the car suppose to vibrate going 50+? After driving away from the dealership, I hit the highway. I tried not to hit boost at all, gonna baby her until I hit 1k or so. Anyways, when I got up to about 60-65 the car was not smooth at all. The car felt tight but it was like my seat was vibrating.
2. Is the acceleration suppose to hesitate? I didn't slam on the gas at all but I did take her up to 4k or so and it just didn't feel "good." Again, I'm just comparing it to my 03 mustang, which felt very good as it climbed rpms. BTW This is my first turbo car.
In closing let me just say that I love the car. From the forums I know WRX's transmission isn't suppose to be the best but coming from a 5 speed gt, it feels amazing. I'm digging the look of the car (although I do like the 04-05 better), fit and finish is top notch. The stereo is..well its a stock stereo.
Thanks in advance for any help.
