79 dayum, you sound a lot like Riggins on Friday Night Lights....cool. Anyhow so after your video, yea that soot is nasty dude. I can't believe that when you first saw that....no one really could help you...that's disgusting for such a new car. You really got a bad one man. I don't know what others back ends look like, but I can only imagine. I find it hard to believe that CR rates this car #1 seeing as the simplest thing...oil burning can't be fixed.
So if something cannot be fixed.....how reliable is that... 0%? Not sure I trust anyone at this point. Like I said...if you have good luck in life...maybe you Impreza is fine...but my luck sucks. If I bought the 2012/13 Impreza I can almost guarantee I'd get one that burns oil.
