    I have a question I need help with

    I just bought a brand-new 2012 WRX . While driving it home from the dealership, I was about 5 miles down the road. All the sudden the dashboard lights up like a Christmas tree, all the warning lights came on and the speedometer starts jumping around, but the car still ran smooth. I drive it back to the dealer; they said itís probably a loose fuse it would take a minute to fix. 30 minutes later the service manager comes over and tells me it looks like itís probably the alternator and going to take a week for the part to come in. Anybody have any ideas and/or do I just tell the dealership to order me a new WRX instead?

    Tell your dealer, give me a rental car, keep the new wrx and wait for a new alternator to come in. If he say no, ask him to borrow his office phone, and dial 1800 subaru3 . have a nice day
