The direct injection is terrible. Not sure if its improved on the newer body. My friends has issues and needs to have the intake manifold taken off and cleaned up at only 30k. Cobb has a service bulletin on it. I will stay clear of them even though my awd isn't needed in southern California. I feel that the wrx/sti is way more reliable. I also wouldn't want to be the "tag along" Mazda that's hanging out at the Subaru meets, like some of them do over here. Nothing against them hanging out with us, I would just want to hang out with other Mazda owners if I owned a Mazda. I really enjoy the Subaru community.
Think its this one,
