Im Karrie, anyone in baltimore?? Good times, so i just got my 09 wrx wagon back in may. already 1 engine swap (mine was made in august-booo!). The car is working amazing now. im really nervous though.
I went from having a 00 integra to this. I hated giving up the integ bc it was such a great car. Someone hit me back in dec so i had to get a new car.
I didnt realize how important the suspension is to me when looking for a new car... And really, by far i think it is my most fav thing about the car. Yeah im hooked, im Subaru for life, there is def no doubt.
I have questions though.. i need to learn how to drive this car! its obviously much different from a honda
When is it bad to use the off road button??
do they really record everything you do in the computer such as speed? if so you can get that cleared however, do they know that you cleared it?
Ive been told that it doesnt matter of which gas grade your using (although i dont listen to that, im using 93)
been told that since its just a small turbo i dont need to let it sit for a min (even though i do)
when i first brought my car in for the engine, the manager was trying to disclose everything to me, and he pointed to some mud under my car (it had been raining for 2 weeks straight and i live on a dirt road). he tried to say that the factory might say that the engine is not under warr due to eveidence of off roading.
it really really irritated me, and eventually they found that it was a defect and with in 2 weeks and no $$ out of my pocket i was finally back into my sweet scoob.
i also have the opportunity to reflash it for a very low price. why would i want to vs not wanting to...? obviously you want to go to someone you know is trustworthy.. but warr wise why would i not want to?
the main thing is i really just need to learn to drive this car. any moron with a DL can get in a car and drive,but that doesnt mean you know how to drive it... and i am very temperamental about driving. i know when the slightest thing is going wrong.. (atleast in the integ)
its only been a couple months and im sure ill grow into the car..
there is just this really really fun dirt trail up by my house that i love and i know im not driving my best
what can i say im just in love right now
so whats the best way to take care of this car??
