So I just bought a new 2012 WRX and only one word comes to my mind... LOVE
Let me just start out by saying I am not a car whiz, I know the basics. What i do plan on is learning everything I can about my WRX so in time I can do all the maintenance on it.
When I figured out I needed a new car, (tranny went out on my 250,000 mile civic) the first thing I thought of was a Subaru. A buddy in High school had a WRX and of course, since i drove a ****ty 97' Honda civic, I was extremely jealous. I only test drove this one car and immediately fell in love. I finally have a car I can take up to Lake Tahoe to go snowboarding and won't have to worry about the vehicles reliability in snowy conditions.
I did not buy any further warranty's that dealership offered. One of the financial guys who was helping me recommended the 6 year / 70,000 mile warranty for more than 2,000$
I thought this was a little much even though 300$ is because of the turbo. With regular maintenance and properly taking care of my new baby, should I not even worry about a further warranty?
Other than regular maintenance (oil change, air filter change...etc...) is there anything else I can do to ensure the longevity of my Subaru?
Any help/advice/comments would be greatly appreciated.
