This client purchased a new 2022 Subaru WRX, expecting a high-performance driving experience. Unfortunately, the vehicle soon exhibited severe mechanical issues, leading to multiple repair visits to authorized Subaru dealerships for repairs. With just over 1,000 miles on the odometer, our client brought the WRX to the dealership, reporting that the vehicle would not shift into gear.

On this first repair visit, the dealership verified that the transmission would grind when attempting to shift into third gear, both while upshifting and downshifting. After consulting with Subaru’s technical support, it was determined that the transmission required a complete replacement. Although this repair was not covered by Subaru’s limited warranty, Subaru agreed to cover the cost as a goodwill gesture.

The transmission assembly was replaced, and the vehicle was test-driven to ensure proper operation.

During the same visit, a multi-point inspection revealed that the clutch assembly was hot-spotted, and the flywheel and clutch disc were heavily worn. These components were replaced, and the clutch system was restored to proper function. Despite these extensive repairs, the vehicle continued to exhibit issues, leading our client to seek legal assistance.

Recognizing the persistent problems and significant inconvenience, our client decided to search for legal help and that is when she contacted the Lemon Law Experts.
