chances are though that even if you buy a new sti and it has been test driven its been taken past 3k, you know it has, i mean who wouldnt take a new sti for a test drive and try to get ti to somethine like 6 or 7k rpm

Default ABS,Skid and Hill Lights stay on simultaneously

I just bought a brand new 2008 Impreze 2.5RS Sport Package. This is my second week driving the car, with 200Km on the ODO.
Last week when I started the car, the ABS,Skid and Hill Lights stay on simultaneously and I drove away thinking they will eventually go off, but not until I switched off the engine. Today, same thing but this time all 3 lights came up while I was on the HWY. Any idea what this could be? Thx

You're under warranty...just take it in and have the dealership fix it. Easier than diagnosing it like this.

my wife and i just baught her a new Scion tC and her's said to pretty much give it hell in the break-in period to insure that your car sees all conditions under break-in. i was happy to oblige, but my wife wasn't so happy that i did

Subaru uses Valvoline; unless you're modifying for performance or tracking the car, I'd just stick with Valvoline conventional 5w-30
