stilletto's '11 WRX Sedan
Among the teens of cars, something like fourteen in six years, I've owned these past few years, I've never owned a Subaru.
..that changed this past Monday. Picked up an '11 DGM WRX Sedan. So sick.
Was honestly in the market for a '13 Subaru BRZ, or '13 Honda Civic Si, but ran across this thing staring out the window of a VW Dealership in Downtown Chicago. Couldn't say "No".
Car was traded in for something larger by an older gentleman, and only had 21k Miles on it. Bone Stock upon purchase. Only other AWD vehicles I've driven have been my previous Automatic '98 Eclipse GSX and a friends '12 VW Golf R. ..prefer the WRX over both.
Only downside so far is a loud "squealing", similar to a bad accessory belt, that seems to be coming from the turbo when revving between 2500-3000rpm. Almost specifically at 2900rpm.
Thought it was the belts at first, as VW sprayed whatever crap grease/shine all over the engine bay during their prep while I was signing paperwork, but I removed the ALT/PS Belt the next day, and cleaned it along with the pulleys, but no change. Noise is most noticeable at said rpm, and after the car's been warmed up.
Aside from this small issue, which may be large, I'm super pumped to own this car, and can't wait to dive deeper into the Subaru Community. Thanks in advance for what I'll learn.
