my wagon got a lil' warm today
On my way back to the office after lunch today, I noticed that the temp on my car had climbed to just above the second tick on the gauge. Yikes! I promptly turned off the A/C and rolled the windows down and moved the climate knob to hot. Things cooled down rather quickly. So I turned the A/C back on and watched the temp slowly rise back to the warm side of the gauge.
Anybody having this problem? Im gonna check coolant levels when I get home and also make sure that the fan is coming on when the A/C is turned on. How do the fans operate on the WRX. One on all the time, then another one comes on a certain coolant temp? Do both fans kick in full time when the A/C is turned on?

I don't know about both but I've noticed at least one fan seems to stay on all the time with the A/C.
I do glance at my temp often enough but have never noticed what you describe. I don't use my A/C much though.
For the record my cruiser behaves just like this when the coolant is low...but I'd hate to think you've lost that much coolant on such a new car.
Could possibly be a sticking thermostat too, but leave that up to the dealer to figure out for free.
Good luck I hope it doesn't turn out to be a big hassle!
