Good luck getting the claim, I had an 09 forester XT that was from the stop sale vin range of 2009 and they wouldn't do anything for when it spun #1 rod bearing at 90k. Known engine failures with a stop sale and nothing.

interested to see where this goes as the final hearing was last week. Motor blew at 13k, stage 1 AP tune, and they covered it under warranty. Also purchased an extended warranty after that, which sucks since now this one is longer anyways.. lol

I thought the heads and turbocharger would be covered because of lack of oil from rod bearings, but guess not. Total out of pocket $3,870. Including turbocharger.
Update: 6/29
Picked up the car yesterday. Got the price down to $3,000. Would have been nice if they covered the heads and turbocharger, but really can't complain the car had almost 100,000 miles on it.
So far runs great have to bring it back in 1,200 miles for a check up.
They didn't say anything about braking in the motor or turbo.

Rod bearing number 2 failed so oil pressure to the rest of the engine was to low.

Subaru n00b here. Looking @ a WRX since it's one of literally a handful of appealing cars these days.

Does the FA20 suffer from any notable problems? Honestly the ring land thing is scaring me away from getting an STI.

I've got a 2012 hatch for sale in NH with a built short block if you'd be interested in something like that.

Early ones were covered for "excessive oil consumption". My Crosstrek with an FB20 had the short block replaced at 94k miles. Honestly, if they had offered me a few hundred dollars to live with adding a couple quarts between oil changes, I'd have gladly taken it. So far, the new short block hasn't used a drop of oil. I expect newer FBs have corrected this issue. I don't know what was done to fix it......as I also don't know what was corrected following the CVT replacement in the same car at 53k miles.

Default WRX/STI engine failure class action settlemnet

So does anyone know if the 2018 STi is affected if it has the same short block as the 2017 STi?

Affected? This is a class action settlement benefiting owners of models from 2012-2017.

So no; the 2018's are not part of the class settlement.

What I mean is, are the 2018 STi motors also susceptible to engine failure for the same reason as the 2017 STi motors?
