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