Fun Car. A little overpriced.

Ride quality is a little harsh, but manageable as a daily driver. Has sufficient power, but the engine is outdated and in desperate need of a refresh. I find the horsepower is lacking for a $40,000 car.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: NO

I have wanted a STI for a long time. I still can't Believe the car is in my drive way. The power of the car is awesome, and just thinking of the power upgrades I'm going to do to the car is overwhelming. The 2.5 turbo boxer motor is time tested and trusted. Anyone looking for a import muscle car this is it. I recommend this car to anyone who wants hp, and to anyone who wants to build a car to have great hp.

10000 mile review of 2017 WRX STI

I purchased a 2017 WRX STI new and this is my first Subaru. I needed a four door car to fit me and the future first child, but I still wanted a sports car of sorts. The Sti fit the bill for me. It has the power, acceleration, and sound of a sports car, but four doors, a livable interior, and Subaru reliability. The gas mileage has been about 18-21mpg depending on how heavy your rught foot is. The alcabtara sheets are holding up ok now but time will tell how the hold up long term. The ride is very stiff for sure. Much stiffer and bouncier than my recent Honda S2000 and BMW M3; this I was shocked about. Passengers in the front seat comment about the ride being bouncy; passengers in the rear seat hate the ride. Time will tell if this will be a problem when we have our first child soon. Also the stock exhaust has done drone around 1500rpm specifically so you need to be just above or below that rpm to avoid this. Overall I'm happy after 1000 miles of ownership. The car is fast, fun, has a great exhaust, and has a wonderfully tight six speed manual. Time will tell if this will work as my family car or if I need a more comfortable car.

STI this year performance very well. Very nice, responsive short shifter. Very nice choice this year. Car has a very solid feel. Exhaust could be louder to show true sti monster under the hood. Wish it came with larger rims and staggered tho. But overall a fun car.

Whoever wants a sports car to have fun and drive it everyday to work, etc, what you're looking for is the 2017 Subaru WRX. A strong engine combined with weight distribution. It's great for the snow as well. It's engine is sealed so that no dust or snow draws its way through.

Exceeds all of my expectations. Such a good car and knocks your socks off performance. Never fails to draw compliments from those who know cars. Not a beauty, but the engineering more than makes up for it. I have not even had the chance to open it up yet because I still have 800 miles to go for the break in shackles to be removed. Looking forward to unleash this beast. Plenty of visual, handling and performance mods available. Got to love the STI!

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
