    New owner of a 2012 WRX

    Hey guys, I just bought a 2012 WRX with 19,000 miles on it and the check engine light, traction control light are on with the cruise control light flashing. I took a code reader to it and the code p2610 came up witch is the ECM/PCM. Does anyone know why this would come on? Or what I should do? The car is still under the original manufacturers warranty. I also have 10 more days to take the car back. So what should I do????

    Thanks!

    The car is still at the dealers in the shop, tomorrow I will know exactly what happened and why by the professional Subaru mechanics. But I am returning the car tomorrow as well to get a brand new one if in stock.

    So here's the update. The car had a bad relay and the part is being ordered. I did order a brand new car which should be here around June. So in the meantime I get to drive the 2012 until I get the 2013 in.
    Thanks for all the opinions!
