problem #1

Jun 142005

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 36,000 miles
In January,2005 I purchased a used 2002 subura WRX Impreza from a private owner. The previous owner gave me all receipts of all repairs done to the car.on the receipt it shows that he complained to the car dealer called rafferty subura in P.a. of screeching noise fro the front brakes. The dealer replace the pads and lubricated the brakes. That was at 36K miles. The car now has 38K miles and I have the same screeching noise in the front brakes. I brought it to my mechanic and he had to replace the brakes pads. The screeching noise still exists. I look up on the web for any similar complaints about subura and their brakes. I found tons of complaints about the same problem. www.carsmart.com/content/research/forums/index.cfm/action/posts/fid/1959 some of the complaints wrere register with NHTSA. I need to know what is being done about this. Several of the complaints people have gotten into accidents.
