My second Sti- destruction of a fine car
By subdriver3 on


2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I am dissapointed in my 2008 Sti. It drives like a stretched limo compared to my former STI
Sedan. Frankly, I am sorry I bought it.

My previous Sedan STi was undoubtely the most fun, sensitive, firey driving experience I ever had.
I looked forward to driving it every day and it was a magical experience. It was like a wild horse at my finger tips.

This 2008 limo has been destroyed by Subaru in my opinion. Its acceleration, handling, ride almost feel like an ordinary car. It is boring. I wish I had spent less money and bought the WRX from what I hear.

On the other hand, it is, for me,
a reliable, stable luxury car of a draft horse that can handle the altitude of Colorado.

Best Features

Nice , slow, stable feel. You know it won't let you down.

Worst Features

Bring back the 2006 characteristics of the firey Sedan as much as possible. Add an option to stop fishtailing on sharp acceleration and turning as an option.
