My 02 Impreza has about 105000 miles. I've just installed the 3rd replacement set of rear brake pads and rotors. Still running front original set with good lining remaining. Anyone have a good idea what's wrong. This is enough to have me bad-mouthing Subaru soon.

I was recently told by an automotive shop that they know of an issue with oil changes on WRX Turbo models. Not quite understanding what they are referring to but they mentioned that old oil remains in the Turbo section and unless one takes specific action to remove it, it poses a long term issue. They also mentioned that they also crank the engine without starting it to ensure that new oil flows into the oil filter and turbo. All for an additional charge of course. Has anyone seen or heard of this before? Is there a TSB out for WRX Turbo maintenance? Thanks.

My Subi has oil accumlulating on the bottom of my spare tire mold. (underneath the car)
The axles are a little wet, but it seems that the oil is coming from further up. Things up by the engine are dry. And it seems the leak is from the top side of the drive train... maybe halfway back? what could this be?

My 2002 Impreza RS has approx 110,000 miles , all highway. I have recently had to change my front and rear struts. My check engine light has been on so when I took it in, was told that the catalytic converters and front oxygen sensor needs to be replaced. Anyone has had similar experiences with their Subaru ?
