2009 Subaru Impreza WRX 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

In the last year I've experienced a complete engine failure due to spun rod bearing (as have 100's of others US and abroad), driven with an intermittent CEL for 2 months and been to the dealership 4 different times to have the problem resolved, I have multiple issues with the factory ECU tuning including a severe occasional hesitation, and about a dozen other manufacturer defects and dealer workmanship issues including a damaged intercooler, multiple components installed improperly, multiple components not installed at all (missing bolts, etc), and the vehicle now makes a wide array of abnormal noises. Was fun to drive when it was running properly, but trust me its not worth the hassle!

Favorite Features

Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive system. Is a very efficient design; additionally it handled winter weather exceptionally well (even with Dunlop summer tires).

Suggested Improvements

Bring back the Subaru STI Sedan. Also, typically it is a good idea to perform due diligence (engineering) when making alterations to a design...
