Hi all,

I'm here to post in the Classified section, but looks like I need to post a few other things first, so I'll start with my story:

I've got a 2009 WRX, of which I am the only owner. It's fully stock, as I got it not for the modding aspect, but more as just a fun car to drive up to the mountains. It's also had all its scheduled maintenance, at the dealership up to when the warranty ran out, and then at a Subaru specialty place near me. Its got just under 90k miles on it.

So, a few weeks ago as I was driving from Seattle to Kelowna to visit my sister, it just suddenly lost power while I was on the highway. I got it towed to the Canadian Tire at the nearest town, where they took a look at it and told me that it was an internal engine issue, and that I'd need to put in a whole new engine. They came back a few days later and told me they were unable to source an engine from their suppliers, and that I'd have to get one there myself--hence why I'm in the market for an engine.

It's just a bummer that this just seemed to happen out of the blue--it had just been serviced a few weeks prior to the trip, and they didn't notice anything out of sorts. I've been reading that this problem seems fairly common in this model year...

Other than that, it's been a great car!

i'd call SOA and tell them about it, mention how you maintained it and have always had it stock with no mods. you're the original owner as said in the OP? you have nothing to lose calling them, you have all service records?

Get it towed to a real mechanic, preferably one who knows these cars. Canadian Tire is not the place you want working on your vehicle.
