I had a WRX STI for a while. Then I graduated high school. Gold rims and loud mufflers are fun at this point in your life.
You lose compression on #3 yet?
Nope and my car is included in the lifetime class action suit so if it does then subaru of America will fix it. I understand the target market for the car as it is the second one I have owned. It gets more looks than a GT350 or hellcat so I feel good about it plus it has picked up some cool trophies at the local car shows.
So your logic is keep a defective engine that struggles to make stock HP because you might be able to have Subaru fix it when compression is lost? No judgment, just curious?
I have owned two of these and as you call it have never lost compression or blew my engine up. Of course I don't make sense less modifications.
Oh and subaru replaced the clutch on my stock car with less than 10 thousand miles on it. Subaru customer service is light years beyond anything Ford does. Ford will argue with you over little warranty repairs.
That’s an interesting way to live. I guess I word prefer to get a car that doesn’t need that level of support for defective parts (Maybe an Evo or S3/S4?) but to each his own.
Why all the subie hate? I like some Audi’s, but you can poke fun @ an STI while the S3/S4 are based on bargain basement platforms from VW & an Evo from a company I’m not even sure makes passenger vehicles anymore & I know doesn’t make the Evo anymore.
I would like an STI to fit my need/desire for a “bad weather sporty toy DD w/ stickshift that I can beat crap out of on city roads”
