Reviewed: 2008 Subaru WRX STI

4dr Hatch turbocharged 305hp 2.5L H4 6-speed manual AWD

Why the 2008 Subaru WRX STI?

Powertrain performance

I find that the car has plenty of power. When the turbo gets on pipe its very sweet !


I find that it tracks very flat through corners and what not.

Cargo capacity

When u lay the sits down u have a ton of cargo capacity. I layed down a 50 x 40 rug and it didnt fill the back completely.

Reliability & durability

Sub has a great track record for both its reliability and durability.

Exterior styling

Its very aggressive looking and that appealed to the boy racer in me.

Why Not the 2008 Subaru WRX STI?


Paying it every month !! Argh its sort of expensive

Fuel economy

It drinks gas like a collage student on a drinking binge

Reliability & durability

Sub had some issues with the 08 tune for the sti. They where prone to cracking the piston rings in sustained high rpm use. This is not a good thing !! They have since done a service recall to fix this issue.

Price or payments

Making it every month !!!
