I got the letter about the ABS problem with my '03 WRX Wagon. Since
I've had the problem with the ABS and called the dealer to schedule
the change.

Service manager said that the change changes the ABS and the regular
breaking - and that 7 out or 10 people hate it after the change.

Has anyone done the change? Opinions??

I've heard only good things about the change. Me thinks the dealer just
doesn't want to do the work.

I just purchased a '03 WRX a few weeks ago from a dealer. Is there a way
to find out if the change was done? Also what was the issue?

I've got to admit I'm not really happy with the ABS in one situation. We
have very rough roads in the Detroit area. I've been driving at say 10
MPH, start breaking, hit a series of bumps in the road and the ABS kicks
in and have taking longer to stop. I wasn't breaking hard or even
approaching lock up.

Damn, should have searched web before asking about this. Just found the
recall and it addresses the problem I'm having. I must say I didn't like
how the ABS

Follow up on this.

Went ahead and had the change done and while it's only been a week,
I'm absolutely happy.

Looks like they were trying to discourage the 'warranty' work.

Annoying.

I wonder if this ABS fix is available for 2000 Outback too? I've seen
this problem forever on it.
