    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.
