    Just got a 2006 STi

    I just bought it yesterday, everything was going great, I love the car. Today, I take it for a drive and I notice the check engine light has come on, the cruise control light is flashing, and there is a noticeable shake at idle that was not there yesterday. I'm looking for anyone who may have experienced these same issues and what it could possibly mean?!

    The CEL will have generated a code. See if you can get that read for free at a local auto parts store or somehow find out the code and post it.

    Where did you buy the car from? A CEL is something that can make or break a sale.. It can't be on for a dealership to sell a car since it won't pass emissions that way..
