(i know, it's been mentioned in this tread, but i want to back this up.)
The deceleration noise has been problem on my WRX since day one and I now have 1600 miles and it's deff not getting any better. My car is 100% stock and purchased w/ 30miles on it. This is *not* a normal noise for any car AWD or not. I will be trying to do a audio capture of the noise this week and posting it.
I also think it's one of those major issues that should be mentioned, but I voted for the tranny option.
If anyone asked me I would tell them not to buy WRX until they can have this resolved. I almost kinda would have to say I would rather return my WRX if I was going to stuck with this noise, but I'm being positive for now assuming that SOA and/or my dealership will be handling the issue promptly.
