Why does this keep coming up ? you think Subaru's engineers are so incompetent they can't design an engine that can cope with the odd trip to its indicated VMax ?
When in Germany in '95 the new Opel Vectra 1.6L 5spd manual I was driving was often at its indicated 115mph Vmax for sustained periods of time on the Autobahns without managing to burn massive amounts of oil. Luckily for Subaru they don't sell the "fragile" Impreza in Germany...Oh wait they do....
