    New Member - New 2010 WRX Limited Hatch

    Just wanted to say hi to everyone and introduce myself to the forum. I am a new owner of a brand new Black 2010 WRX Hatch that I just purchased. Will receive it tomorrow since it is coming from another dealer. Pics coming soon!

    *side note* They said it has 30 miles on the odometer. Is that normal for a new car?

    The car I had before is a 2001 Lexus IS300 so I am a first time Subaru owner (very excited!). Anyways, I'm excited to getting to know everyone. Thanks!

    When I got my '09 Rex it had right around 200mi. on it b/c it had to come from another dealer pretty far away and for some reason they couldn't truck it?! I dunno, didn't feel like arguing...

    But back when I bought my '07 Si brand new it had just over 20mi. on it so it seems normal.

    30 miles is nothing. my 09 had 26 on it before i test drove it and i put another 15 on it before i bought it.

    My dealer wouldnt let me go over 4K rpms on my test drive. Hopefully yours was treated the same way.

    Every car I test drove (Genesis Coupe, GDI, Lancer, RX8, Speed3, WRX, and Cooper S) I took over 4k rpms and the dealers didn't say anything. Hell I wasn't shifting in the RX8 until I got to 7k. I never redlined any of them so I'm guessing the dealers didn't care. The two Sooby dealers I drove at were proud of the fact I could get to 60, safely, in 2nd gear.

    Less miles the better. New WRX shouldn't go over 4k for the first 1000 miles so it's better your buying one w/ less miles. Mine had 70 on it. Another one i test drove had 220.

    The kid trying to selling me the one w/ 220 didn't care...he actually encouraged me to "get on it." I kind of wish they tried to limit the amount of times it went over 4k rpms so that the person who buys it doesn't buy a car that's torn up. Even if its only 100 or 200 miles.

    Mine had 63mi on it when I picked it up.. I figure the test drives aren't whats going to harm the engine. Its more of a "prolonged" high rpm during break in that can cause damage. I babied it once i got it and it runs like a top now.. 12k mi later. No issues.

    congrats on the purchase! Black looks dead sexy when its clean
