Name: '08WRXRider

Make: 2008 Impreza WRX

Mileage: 40,000ish miles

Time Out Of Use: none yet

Problem And Likely Cause: ABS & VDC Malfunction Indicator Lights on on dash; ABS & VDC not functioning

Modifications: None that should've caused these issues. All have been installed for a while now. AEM CAI, COBB AccessPort w/OTS Stage 1 tune, GrimmSpeed Master Cylinder Brace.

Submitted For Warranty Work (Yes/No): Not yet, but have appointment next week

Reason Given For Denial: May not be covered by Subaru Extended Warranty (Premium/Gold/Classic/?)

Your Story: This issue started yesterday just after setting off on a longish trip out of the mountains I live in. It has never occurred before, but happens every time I drive now.

Upon starting the car, all is normal. No MILs. After setting off & getting up to over 20 or so MPH, then stopping, the ABS & VDC MILs illuminate. They stay on until I turn the car off. At which time the cycle repeats.

I haven't hit anything on the road. There is no obvious damage or disconnected wires/plugs. Car worked as it should up to the night before last. Then, suddenly this problem.

Brought to dealer while out of mountains. Assistant Service Manager said I could bring it in for diagnosis (at a cost of $140.00+) & hopefully they will find the issue. Doesn't know if my Subaru Extended Warranty covers this. I have the premium one, but don't remember what it's called at this time.

BTW, pads are pretty worn & I just started hearing wear indicators very recently. Could this be a cause?

To top it off, warranty ends very soon.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

When you say 'no wires are disconnected' you wouldn't have recently connected any, would you have? Can't remember where on here I read this but someone thought wires became disconnected, connected them, had all kinds of dash lights start doing goofy things. Some kind of test mode?

Default 2013 Wrx Burned Rotor Advise Please!!!

Guys, I need to know your opinion regarding my case.

I owned a 2013 Subaru WRX sedan which I bought dec 2012 with GOLD WARRANTY. currently it has 17,000miles. I don't drive it now everyday because i got a job in manhattan a month ago and use the subway.

Last sunday night, I heard a grinding sound on front right; called dealer and had my appointment today; They found out that my rotors are damaged; they called me and upon assessment of the factory field representative its "FOUND HOT SPOTS ON ROTORS FROM AGRESSIVE DRIVING"; Initially, they want me to pay $400 dollars for the rotors, I was so upset and told them I have Gold warranty and I don't even drag race and doing much aggressive driving! Of course, the reason I bought a WRX for sport driving, i don't even abuse it! The manager always tell me "that's the factory rep assessment". Last checkup of my car was for 15,000 miles; my last out of state trip was in vermont.

So they rapaired it free. Im just so disappointed because the reason I bought a subaru is the reliability. The annoying part was they are blaming me for the damage due to "Aggressvie driving". I'm just concerned just in case I'm gonna have another problem with my car, and they will see my record.

I feel that that this incident needs further investigation for the benefit of the customers. Your opinion is highly appreciated. thank you.

First the Gold extended warranty doesn't cover brakes so that is moot. Also it only begins once the factory basic warranty expires.

I can't count how many cars I have seen regardless of brand where something did not last as long as the owners "expected", especially something that is a "wear item". It happens. Now I can't comment on why they tried to blame abuse because there are always 3 sides to a story and I won't bother sifting through it on the internet.

Yea I know I ****ed up and had an impulse buy because I needed a car asap. Live and learn. But hey I have a warranty so I don't really care. Once warranty is over the car is gone haha. Most likely way before that tho.
