2022 Subaru WRX TS

I purchased a 2022 Subaru WRX TS with CVT transmission, as my wife can’t drive a manual transmission. I must say that I am very impressed both in comfort and the level of performance from this new highly refined version. As an old school rev head I can honestly recommend this car to anyone. Love it Show details ·  1

  V1 Premium Manual

Reliability and all weather car

Own it since 2013 with trade in my bug eye 2.0 wrx after 11 years .Performance was obvious with 2.5 l turbo and sure-footed under heavy rain on highway and windy road. I only use all terrain tyres and drive to work everyday, so far no trouble with the engine and serviced my car by my own mechanics. Show details ·  1

Absolutely love this car

I’ve had my WRX Premium since new in 2015, and it has been nothing but a joy to drive; both on the road and on the track (light track).

Works well with my family who all also enjoy it.

Couldn’t speak any higher of it. Show details ·  1

Pure Power

A wonderful innovation without exhorbitant price and maintenance costs. Cruises well on freeways with power packed acceleration ,
yet glides swiftly in city driving. Costs of servicing is relatively cheap compared to european equivalent. Compared to my former BMW 125i , the WRX maintenance costs is halved yet 30% more powerful at 197kw.Fuel economy can be better ,my average fuel consumption is 10.8 liters per 100km mixed city and country driving.
Overall a tough car made for rally thus suspension seems hard but not unbearable.
Engine noise can be improved but then this is a sports .

Great Family Sports Car

This car is amazing fits the children in the back with car seats and leaves plenty of room for the driver and passenger in the front. The Boot space is incredible, can easily fit suitcases and a few extra things for holidays.

The car gets better than expected fuel consumption, 9.1/100 Daily, can't wait to take it on a long trip.
The car has plenty of power down low from 2000rpm.

WRX STI premium (2017)

Subaru has come along way with the STI. I'm using it as a daily even, its very safe easy to drive and looks great inside and out. Cabin has come a long way, I found it nicer than Benz CLA models. Fuel economy could be better (10L/100km) but not complaining based on performance.

WRX STi

The WRX STi is a great looking car and subaru have it down pat. They are not only a smart company but make good quality bang for buck cars. The STi is a little thirsty similar to a V8 engine. I found the paint work needs attention and the fact you cant do much more to the engine. I think it needs more TQ, otherwise a great overall car.

James K. · V1 STI Premium (2014-2021)

why does the clutch pedal feel so heavy to push? is the clutch set up the same for 2016 to 2020 models?

How often should a WRX be serviced.?

Asym
Asym  

6 to 12 months depending on use. I change the oil myself at 6 months in so service yearly.

vGood idea Thanks

Stephen, Subaru say every 12,500km but I would say every 6000km if you give it a hard time. Remember it’s full synthetic oil, if you leave it too long the oil becomes a paste and then you start to hear the rockers.

Does the new 2013 come with a 6 speed box?

I believe the STi has the 6-spd Manual or 5-spd Auto while the non-STI WRX is only available in the 5-spd Manual.
