This settlement kind of ticks me off - I'm considering just selling the STI and just buying a truck. Especially since they want to deny all STI's previously modded, regardless of how mild the mod was, or whether the car was put back to stock for 50k miles before the failure.

I'm starting to become disgruntled towards the brand.
Look at it from their shoes, why should they be on the hook for people that mod the cars outside of what a warranty would cover, blow them up, and then expect Subaru to foot the bill?

I'm not expecting that people mod their cars and blow them up and then ask Subaru to cover them. I'm saying, why shouldn't Subaru cover a car if it was put back to stock and had XX,XXX good miles on it before it blew up? Subaru offers a warranty for their Red Dragon subies, I can't see why they couldn't offer one for those who just did a Cobb OTS Stage 2 mod and put back to stock for a while before a problem developed.

This settlement is unfair because many of us may have made a different choice on whether to mod or not if we knew we were giving up a 100k mile warranty, not just 36k warranty.

$625k in attorney fees and they agree to pay us for repairs under certain circumstances. I spun a rod in my '13 at 50k (Gold Plus warranty replaced) and again at 118k which wasn't covered. Replaced it with an '05 EJ255 and sold it!

Doesn't seem like there are that many mods that would a rod bearing to fail, but it's pretty obvious to me, not having modified mine at all, that this wasn't ever a modification problem.

There were revision to the STI engines, similar to the engine in the Type RA. But who knows if that fixes it? lol
