This car is great, I have waited for years to own a Subaru WRX and now that I finally own one I couldn't be happier. It is absolutely the most fun I have had driving a car in many, many years. Just enough playful HP and torque to make the car an exhilarating fun drive. I have not had any issues with my car other than the occasional interior noise in a panel or two, easily fixed BTW by just searching the net. Oil changes are expensive, but hey I figured that using synthetic. The only thing I would change and glad they did in 16 would be the wheel size. Definitely going to an 18 - 8.5 or 9 when the time permits. I would highly recommend this car. Don't understand the negative reviews unless it was a lemon from the factory or just did not live up to the owners expectation. I would buy another in a heartbeat.
Okay let start off with I had a 2004 WRX. I love it and I would of still kept it if I didn't total it. Unfortunately [non-permissible content removed].
Went to purchase a 2015 Wrx I saw a lot of reviews and felt I made my research. Unfortunately I didn't do it correctly I'm guess. At 300miles the check engine with the cruise control came on flashing, and while at a stop light (being in nutral) the case get it was going to stall. Took it in "they got it fix". Around 2,000 miles or so it did the same thing not only the check engine and cruise control came back on and the ABS and the hill assists and the rough idling kept on happening. Took it in they kept it for an entire month. Got it back and when turning on the car there's a very loud gear grinding sound coming for the engine bay (while in nutral). Took it in for the 3rd time they said its normal and all the new WRX make the same noise. WRONG!!!! It doesn't. I honestly wouldn't recommend this model to anyone. Buy a 2014 your better off. I've never thought subaru wouldn't stand behind their product. This car is garbage get something else a GTI your better off or a lancer
Extremely disappointed with what i thought would have been a great car based on reviews. Unfortunately the car had issues with clutch after 1200 miles, and service response was they would fix it once and after that I'm on my own, even though extended warranty was purchased. Subaru apparently does not stand behind it's product as this seems to be recurring issue across multiple forums. Went through a car wash and the air from the blower to dry the car ripped off the wiper arm as it was flapping like crazy, again subaru did not stand behind it. Enough was enough....
Suspension, and cornering capabilities.
Update the interior of the car to match the look of it, very antiquated setup. Also understanding the need to keep the car as light as possible, some sound proofing would be beneficial to block some of the road noise.
2015 Subaru WRX 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is my first turbo charged car and I always debated myself getting used EVO X vs new 2015 WRX. I think I made a right choice not choosing abused EVO X. My previous car was 2008 Toyota Camry with 160k miles and I decided to sell the car before it causes big problems. I read everything about 15WRX before I purchased it, so I was expecting stiff ride; first I was little annoyed but I got used to it. Twin scroll turbo was amazing and I didn't have any issues of turbo delay(it has around 5sec lag around 2500rpm). SAWD suspensions performed superior to anyother AWD cars I have driven.
It cornered very sharply without hearing tire skid. Overall, I made a right choice of getting 2015 WRX.
My favorite features are clustered gauges (boost, oil temperature, AWD deferential, AVG MPG, etc), twin scroll turbo, clutch pedal, standard bluetooth, backup camera and automated climate control, sti short shifter, symmetrical all wheel drive suspensions, 6speed manual transmission, large leg room, exterior and interior looks, stock exhaust system, and comfy bucket seats.
Following needs improvements: better speakers and radio, and better bluetooth microphone.
Traded in a Mustang GT for a WRX with CVT. What a mistake. The cars electronics (radio/Bluetooth/seat heaters) are out of the early 90's. The radio has poor reception and sound quality was awful. The Bluetooth would randomly disconnect, whether using my iPhone or Android phone. The car developed a bunch of rattles. The ride was harsh and the road noise was unbearable. The front paint was flaking off. Most of the issues were well documented in service bulletins but no fixes identified. The AWD was not that good in snow. The back end would over drive and cause the back end to slide out.
Traded in on another Mustang. What a mistake.
Electronics need to be recreated. The noise level needs significant improvement and the ride needs to be softened.
