Ok so i'm new to this forum and you can consider me quite the newbie in the subie world ! This is my story....My previous car was a 2011 Legacy which i loved but after driving stick shift all my life the cvt got to me ! So in May 2014 i decided to treat myself to a 2014 WRX STi Tsuguri Edition (I was looking to buy the 2015 but the guy couldn't confirm id get it for Christmas and i was planning on swapping the huge spoiler for a blank trunk anyways so the Tsuguri was exactly what i wanted). FASTFORWARD: bought the car end of May (demo with 8,000km - previous owner: dealer owner's daughter), drove the car unmodified for approx 3 weeks loving it more and more everyday until she died! Story: Went to a friend's house, gave him a good ride (nothing excessive, no redlining, nothing over 150-160km/h, a simple good 60-160 acceleration kind of ride on the highway...20 mins of pure fun. We came back to his place, parked the car maybe 30mins and when i got in to leave that's when the engine started to make a knocking sound at low rpms, a very nerve racking metal on metal type of noise. I had to go get my daughter at the inlaws so i had no choice but to drive it approx 15mins (believe me I Sunday-drove it religiously...ideally i would've preferred to have it towed right away)...anyways at a certain range of rpm (3-4k) the knocking wasnt so bad, i would hear it clearing when de clutching (i never want to hear that f***ing noise again!). FASTFORWARD: After 1 week at the dealership (Subaru Des Sources in the west-island) they finally got Subaru's OK to investigate the engine. Result: blown piston and bent rod (newbie here guys...might not be using the exact vocabulary) so they will order a new long block. The guy confirmed this about 1 week ago and after speaking to him yesterday he couldn't give me an info as to the whereabouts of the parts or any info on a possible timeline...it sucks but i'm prepared to be patient (not my best quality) + there are a couple of other things they need to fix like for example a freaking rust spot near a headlight and investigate squealing brakes). So I'm presently driving a superb 2014 white Forester....Believe me I miss my car big time ! That's it, i just thought i'd share my story after reading so many threads it was time for me to pitch in.... I also wonder if anyone has had any experiences in major repair work done at Subaru Des Sources in Dorval and if they'd like to comment on staff etc...
