So many problems

...I've had this car for about 8 months. So far - new front axle, valve covers/gaskets, head gasket, ball joints, ignition wires, spark plugs.
I still have problems with the A/T temp light coming on and no dealer can figure it out.
The clock in the dash works only sometimes. I REALLY want to like this car, it's fun to drive when it runs correctly but unfortunetly thats not very often. I love the looks!...

The poor man's supercar

...The car drives like it is on rails, and has almost limitless power.
The torque is amazing compared to my old 99 Honda Civic Si. The STi is an amazing machine. I am still in awe. People look at me like I'm a rock star...

...I have had this car since it was brand new and I must say that it was a no- nonsense vehicle.
There were some quibbles about the wheel bearings giving out quickly, but there is a TSB for fixing it, which to this day after 37,000 miles haven't needed to be replaced again.

Other than that, the engine itself has been a jewel with only simple maintenance needed (i.e., oil change, coolant change, etc.) The car is a blast to drive, especially in the rain.
Overall, a...

Best all-around performer in its class

...On dry roads, this car is fun, safe, and forgiving.
On wet or snowy roads, it is stable, predictable and almost unstoppable.
In the hands of a good driver, the Subaru all wheel drive system will out-perform an SUV for far less money than an Audi or the like...

Great Car!

...I've had mine for 4 years now, has 57,400 miles on it, not a single mechanical problem with the vehicle.
It is a hoot to drive, very zippy. I pull a snowmobile/trailer with it very easily. I think this design looks much better than the WRX...

it all starts to fall apart at once

...53000 miles and a new engine block? they made the pistons too small for the cylinders? WTF? the frameless doors rattle and eventually do fall apart inside, nothing to support the glass.
heater fan squeals/ chirps/doesn't work...

Loud Ride!

...Overall good car. A very loud ride on rough or wet road. Struts make a hallow rattle but do not need to be replaced...
