Blown Engine @ 5,000 Miles
Pros: Handling & brakes are superb
Cons: Engine blew 2 pistons at 5k , required a complete rebuild not covered by warranty because I changed the muffler.Love the car , love the handling - BUT - its not really a $35K car - its a $45K car after you have replaced the engine. Anyone thinking of buying an Sti needs to search Google before and key in 'ringland failure'. A massive disapointment overall after many years of supporting Suabru.
