Hello Everyone, ( forgot to say, my car is not on the STOP SALE list )
I got my first Subaru 08 2.5XT last year Apr. and was up for 15,000miles next week and dealer is calling me for 15k service appointment.
Long story short, I had bring in the car right after I got it when it new last year Apr. for checking on shaking, I mean it's noticeable shaking when idle in parking lot. After tech. check & even the sales manager sit on it to feel the shaking and was told that's normal because of the turbo spinning? Will turbo spinning even idle ?
This is my first turbo & first Subaru brand, therefore I don't know if shaking (bcz has turbo ) is normal? but after 1 year of driving, I notice the shaking are same but engine noice has become little more, specially when you pouch in.
I know some of you guys has 3 to 5 Subaru cars already and is your car shaking when idle? and have you hear the noice when step on gas for around 2500-3000rpm ? ( 1.2.3 gear noticeable more ). I try to find out somehow to record the noice later on, it's pretty hard by just saying it noice, but it's more songs like the old 100k car engine..cha cha cha cha ( fast & but not too loud )
Also any recommend shop around Chicago, IL can do some pro. tune up or suggest some upgrade? Because the guy I talk to in the dealer is not very pro. when I ask what should I upgrade in order to have better handling, GUESS WHAT ? He tell me " I don't know " ***?? How the Fxxk he working in parts dept. and don't know what upgrade parts will make my car handling better ?
Thanks for reading my long complain, but I love my 2.5xt it's great especially on highway..
.... (You really feel it push you in the seat)
Any comment is welcome.
