I feel vaguely sorry for the next owner of his former car.

The next owner will certainly show up on here ranting about how his newly purchased Subaru has gave up the ghost!

Grumpy you are right on the money, 20 years ago I almost bought a brand new mustang GT when I graduated highschool. I wasn't impressed the more I got to drive it so I passed for a used truck. last year, after getting my STI I went and test drove a new 13 GT500. BIG difference, esp with the 13's+. Its a great car.

Looks like OP dumped his car for a Nissan.
Ah I'm jealous.

I wanted a GT500 but just couldn't afford it. I ended up with a 14 GT premium (only options are GT track pack and leather Recaros).

Anyways, people can talk smack about Ford ... But I don't see Subaru offering a full performance catalog, and allowing you to mod and keep your warranty as long as the work is done by Ford using their Ford Racing parts.

I'm always willing to support a company that makes products an enthusiast would want, and is willing to support enthusiasts after the sale.

This is to the OP of the thread. Heres the deal man, if you want a fast daily driver to have fun in, and still be reliable, get something thats fast from the factory. I dont care what anyone says, with my experience, nothing is 100% fail safe that has been modified. Even new 5.0 mustangs can blow even with a super aggressive 93 octane tune, ive seen it happen actually. You just have to pay to play, if you want something super fast and "cool" modded and be a daily driver, prepare to pay.

Maybe try directing him towards something that the dude may actually be able to afford. Unless he has not limit to his budget. But then if that was the case just could rebuild and be done with it. Good luck though with whatever comes about.
You fool! Why would u hate a car company? What have they done to you to make you hate them? U need better things to hate; politicians, reality tv, etc...

As terrible as this is, its a perfect learning opportunity to build your own motor. Get a beater truck for 1500 bucks and fix the dam car yourself. The only issue you have is the motor. Pull it, remove all of the good parts and source a used motor, bore it, get everything refreshed, new pistons etc, and you would have peace of mind and learned so much. It's going to be a huge undertaking without the know how but so worth it.

Default tough deal

If money is an issue, but you still want something fun to drive, think about a good condition S2000. I have been schooled by well driven S2000's on the autocross course enough to respect them. And I am pretty sure they are more fun to drive than my old 97 Prelude, and it was a blast...

For me... I am going back to v8's next. It isn't about power; I miss the sound.

^ OP has dumped the problem car on some dealership in the Northwest on a trade for a 370z. Some sucker will pick up Sti and have major headaches down the road.

By now the new owner should have surfaced. Anyone see a thread lately about a new used car with oil consumption issues?

Haha I've been watching for it. They already sold my car too. Any day now it's going to spin a rod bearing if the new owner doesn't watch that oil. Poor brand new turbo will be shot
