The car was great to 4700 mile marker. Ringland failure downed car and it has been @ dealership for 3 weeks awaiting repair. Have read of widespread issues w/ engine which manufacturer is denying. I don't have much faith in the car when I get it back after this experience. WRC caliber STI's are a thing of the past when they are offered in factory guise.
The power when it is there. The breaks are also powerful in stopping the car from speed. Hatch configuration is useful when carrying cargo.
Subaru needs to get their act together with this unreliable engine. Car is not worthy of pre-'06 Sti's.
