Just this past week that same sound happened again, the next time i went too turn the car on it was dead. Subaru had the car brought in too the nearest dealership to give it a look over. Now i am in my second week of waiting for a new turbo and a new engine! This is all covered by warranty, but come on this is not what i expected of a Japanese product let a loan a subaru! I have done my home work for the last eight years on these cars and finally decided too get one... I guess you could say that i am a proud owner of a 35,000 dollar NIGHTMARE!
I wouldn't be so sure of that Tea cups. Besides we have deemed this thread the 09 WRX engine failure thread; this guy needed a replacement engine at some point so I take it his previous engine failed.
Tom it seems like others have had the same concerns as you about the VIN. Just provide your VIN in the following format (based upon my VIN): instead of 500277 do 500XXX or 5002XX.
