2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Limited WRX STI Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I've been an owner of the 07 limited for almost 2 weeks and it's been in the shop more than in my driveway. There are several issues with the 07 sti models that people need to be aware of. Huge throttle response issues and some hesitation issues during acceleration. When I purchased this vehicle it was a rocket but after 3 days of fun it went into the shop for a check engine light. The dealer fixed the issue and now there's another problem. HORRIBLE throttle response! You will have problems with this car.


Favorite Features

Great pulling power when turbo kicks in. If you are lucky not to have the throttle issue your car will be a complete beast. If not when you step on the gas the car will not respond when you step on it. It will not register for a second.


Suggested Improvements

Subaru has just released a computer fix for a throttle response issue that majority of owners are having and so far 3 of the dealers I went to do not know about the fix! Best improvement needed is make these problems a recall everyone can be fixed

Review

I bought the last STI LTD avaialble. I had to fly out to Oregon and drive this beast back. It was one incredible trip. This last month I tried it out in the winter with new winter tires. Grip is incredible. No problem in the winter. Many compliments on its looks and performance. This is my third new all wheel drive car and they keep getting better. Eagle Talon Tsi and two Subies.


Favorite Features

Performance and looks. Heated seats.


Suggested Improvements

Brake dust is excessive. Key remote trunk release. All season tires.

Review

I have owned my 07 sti limited for over 3 months now. As every day passes I fall in love with her more. It simply amazes me that a 4 cylinder engine can produce this much power. The exhaust note is amazing, braking is awesome and handling is even better. The first week I had my car I had a throttle response issue which is now fixed. There isn't a car on the road that you will back down to when you are behind the wheel of an Sti. They literally pin you to your seat. Off the line they are one of the quickest production cars built in the world. If you are looking for a fun car to drive look no further than the STI!! Simply amazing for the price! Bye bye Porsche. :)


Favorite Features

AWD with short throw shifter. Leather interior and sun roof which is only provided in the LIMITED tpye. Power power and more power. Hood scoop from the interior.


Suggested Improvements

One touch power sunroof.

Review

This is what the WRX STI should be. Awesome performance without attracting unwanted attention. Mine is Urban Grey, #371/800, and it blends in with other cars. The acceleration is terrific once the turbo gets to full boost at 4,000 RPMs. And the handling is equally inspiring causing you to challenge every corner. The downside is incredibly high insurance cost even if you are 40+ with a clean driving record.


Favorite Features

Low key styling-no wing. Supportive but comfortable leather seats. Lots of included extras-sunroof, 6CD stereo + satellite radio. Excellent dash/gauge layout with red illumination. Close ratio 6 speed transmission with short throw shifter.


Suggested Improvements

Power adjustable seats, key off power for accessories, better quality audio speakers.

Review

This is almost the perfect performance car. Its handling, acceleration and braking are 80% of a supercar, but for 30% of the price. It gets all the right kind of attention (people complimenting its good looks) & none of the wrong kind. Engine has good power, transmission ratios are perfect, & AWD is awesome. Seats feel great, interior is very mature, all controls are easy to reach & the climate control system works perfectly. This is my first non-US made car, and while there are few things I miss, I can see why Detroit is in big trouble. I think it's one of the best looking cars of all time. BTW, gas mileage is BETTER than rated! (Insurance is higher than expected).


Favorite Features

Power, AWD, looks, handling, braking, interior layout, dash power up is cool too. Lots of parts and options for these cars as well (but expensive!) Gas mileage is really good for such a performance car. I'm getting 20+ in the city driving conservatively. Less if I drive hard. Really a driver's car.


Suggested Improvements

Way, way, way too many rattles & squeaks. Car pulls to the left, dealership can't fix it. STUPID 2 touch, 2 switch sunroof control. Stereo sound quality below average. Aux input in a bad location. Needs remote trunk release. Controls on keyfob should be on key like Toyota does it. More HP please! :)
