TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Subaru WRX

2015 Subaru WRX Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearComment
2015 Some people will buy a Subaru WRX instead of a Volkswagen GTI because of the brands' disparate reliability reputations. But VW reliability has been improving, while Subaru's record is not spotless. Specifically, new Subaru engine designs often have first-year faults (some 2008 WRXs suffered crankshaft bearing failures, 2011 Forester engines are prone to valve cover leaks), and it remains to be seen whether head gasket leaks are entirely a thing of the past. Both cars are new this year, and it remains to be seen how they'll hold up. This said, the current Impreza, on which the WRX is based, was introduced three years ago and has been highly reliable so far. full 2015 Subaru WRX review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Subaru WRX

2015 Subaru WRX Gas Mileage: Neutral
YearComment
2015 Fuel economy isn't quite a strength, but it's no longer a weakness, either. The new Subaru WRX with its new smaller (but not weaker) engine scores better in the EPA's tests than the old one. City mpg is up from 19 to 21, while highway mpg is up from 25 to 28. In my real-world driving, the trip computer reported averages between 22 and 25 mpg when I enjoyed the car's power, and a little over 30 when I made minimal use of the turbo. Despite the supposed efficiencies of its type, the CVT dings fuel economy. Its EPA ratings are the same as last year's manual transmission WRX. The real problem with the WRX's fuel economy, though, is that the new GTI rates much higher: 25 mpg city, 34 mpg highway. The Focus ST splits the difference with 23/32. Even cutting the WRX a couple mpg of slack for all-wheel-drive, it doesn't quite match the others. full 2015 Subaru WRX review
