So I just bought a 2010 WRX four door last week. I have been loving the car and spending a good amount of time on this site browsing the forums. To be honest I have been getting worried about the reliability of the car. I keep reading about bad clutches and blown engines. This being my first new car I was expecting this **** not to happen for a while. Does this stuff happen pretty frequently? Do you guys have a lot of problems with the cars?
I do not plan on keeping the car stock for a long time so that worries me even more. I don't plan on racing the car or beating on it, but I want a car I can drive without worrying about ****ing blowing my engine.
Do you guys have any advice to help prevent this? Maybe I am just paranoid. But honestly, I do not want to deal with car payments and having to rebuild my engine after some catastrophic failure.
Thanks for any advice and help.
