Hi everyone I'm new to this site and need some advice for my baby 02 wrx. I live in SoCal and although weather is beautiful here...it's hot. I've been Ridin with no ac and windows down for a while. I took her in at a dealership and was told it has a faulty expansion valve and receiver drier. Was quoted $1100 and some change or so. I took her home sad and not fixed
My question is...why the hell it cost so much? Or is it just labor charge? I don't know much about how to fix my car so I need ur advice what I should do. I was told also the turbo might be leaking cos it has this burning oil smell sometimes really bad sometimes no smell at all. I checked and there's no oil leak & I change it every 3months. I would hate to sell my wrx she's already paid off. Should I suck it up and pay all the repairs or give her up?
