    Another Subie Newbie

    Hey guys, I'm a long time Subaru fan. I finally picked up an STi! It's a 09' hatch, pretty much stock other than a couple cosmetic things. First day I took it out and it went into what I've read as "Limp Mode", Si drive light flashing, cruise flashing, hill assist light on, and CEL on. I brought it to AutZone to have them tell me the code before I brought it into the dealership, so I could at least tell them what it was rather than have them reset the ECU and it come back in 100 miles. The code it was throwing was a "camshaft position code, timing too far advanced".I had to bring it back to the Toyota dealership I bought it from today and they're sending in to Subaru to be repaired.. It looks like I won't have my car back for a week or so. It was a total tease being able to drive the car for a week only to have to bring it back and have a loaner Camry . Either way, I LOVE the car and can't wait to get it back.

    I live in MA and would love to go to a Subaru meet. Anyone out there know of some real kick ass meets in New England? Pumped to now be part of the Subaru community!

    Thanks! It's bittersweet that I won't have my car for a week or so, but awesome that it's being sent to a Subaru dealer and repaired the right way.
