I just purchased a 2008 wrx premium with 32k miles on it. The carfax report shows that the long block and turbo charger were replaced in May of this year when the car had 27k miles on it.
This made me a bit concerned but I went through with the purchase.
My question to the experts in this forum:
1) Should I be worried? What could have happened to this car to require such major repair after only 27k miles?
2) Is it likely that the car has been abused by previous owner?
3) The dealer (not a subaru dealer) told me to let the car idle a few minutes after arriving at my destination to help the engine cool down. Is this sound advice? What do I need to know about my new subbie to keep her purring for years to come?
