Cool just hit 60,000 miles on my '02 wrx

took three friends down to key west and hit 60,000 miles on the trip.

as a general, non-specfic review of the car so far i give it a and a

only mods are cobb stage 1 suspension, drivetrain and brakes ... but it's still tons of fun to drive after 2+ years. only complaint i have is with some particulars with the transmission (hard to put in first, not vey easy to drive smoothly all the time, clutch shudder) .. but other than that, the car has been flawless

probobly going to be upping the power soon, as im moving into the working world and will have some more disposable income. hooray.

Wow that's a lot of miles, I hope it does well in the future

You'll probably be the first one to let us know how reliable it is

I got into moderate modifications right away. My experience has
been very good.

I have over 62,000 miles on my 02 WRX and modified it right after break in. I did not think the drivability was optimized. It seemed to need more torque and a smoother delivery.

It has is a TXS UTEC stage 3 running 94 to 95 octane (93 boosted with a little Xylene containing MMT and GTA enhancer.
The water misting for the IC core is located in the trunk. I am pleased with this moderate set-up. I was prepared to "pay to play," but I haven't had to yet.

This is a very easy and (cheap) car to maintain, even with 3000 mile oil and filter changes using Mobil 1 (5w-30)

I just turned 60 on my '02 as well. I would call all my mods stage 1, but looking to do turbo,injectors, and EM soon. The car has been great a few squeeks and rattles, but I am ultra anal about that stuff.

For those of you who have done the 60 service, did you upgrade to any synthetic tranny or dif fluid? If so, what did you use and what if any results have you had.

Happy Motoring.

I don't even know how that's possible. Even just stage 2, where I'm at, it's a blast to drive and it begs to be driven.

I stuck with the Subaru recommended stuff for the transmission and front differential (Valvoline 75w-90) for a compromise between synchro action and antiwear properties. I put Redline synthetic 70w-90 in the rear differential. I like quick shifts with no crunches, and I think the rear differential works harder than the front diff the way I drive. The results have been good. I think Valvoline is a pretty good non-synthetic for the WRX.

I did have a squeek from the seat belt mechanism. Then I "discovered" I could move it up higher.... squeek gone. I emptied out the trunk and put miscellaneous stuff in the folds of cheap car cover as a lighweight "sound and clunk deadener" It also keeps packages from moving around in wheel well. The spare and jack have been replaced with flat-fix, a foot operated air pump, and a cell phone. Most of my driving is close to base (hills and valleys) and errands. My 02 Odyssey is the "long trip, multi-passenger, haul sheets" of plywood vehicle.

I had the same problem with the clutch which turned out to be a warranty item with the 2002 WRX. With 35,000 miles and the warranty about to expire, the dealer "replaced the clutch assembly and the throw-out bearing assemblies" for no charge. Good thing - the internal cost was $993.

Anyway, it's like having a new car - no more strange footwork. Anyone with a 2002 and clutch problems, take it to the dealer before the warranty expires.

Dude. Why pay all that money for a car you aren't using? Even with joy drives alone you should be about twice as high as you are. Is that thing parked in a museum somewhere?
