Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i just bought a 2015 WRX STI and i coming home on the freeway no faster than
normal. I pull off the freeway for my ramp and the car stalls.. I try to start it again and i
tries but does not want to completely start. i pop the hood and the reservoir is boiling i
wait for about 15 min for it to cool and i met the towtruck driver at my house a mile
away. the engine sounds horrible with knocking on the side opposite to the turbo. going
in for a warranty claim but ive been hearing a lot of people motor blowing not sure what
to think...

Honestly, it doesn't matter. You're covered by new car warranty here. Make sure they give you a loaner car while yours is being fixed! Read up on your state's Lemon Law just in case you get it back messed up! HTH. -Jim
