    Newbie from Calgary!!

    Hello! Just saying hi! I might have some stupid questions.....but I would like to find out as much as I can about the Sti before I go buying one.

    So how is the car for reliability?? I am thinking of buying a used one.....one that is a year or two old. What should I look for if I do buy a used one?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Oh the car is great! The only problem with it is that it is limited on the mods that can be done to the car. Here is a pic of my car though:

    The usual stuff you'll hear about are looking for signs of current or previous modifications. This includes a cut or missing heatshield, gauges, etc...I would also inspect the undercarriage for other mods, scrapes from lowering, etc...

    Have an independent mechanic check the car for other stuff and have them perform a compression and leak test. Also, watch out for any grinding especially between 3rd and 4th or 4th and 5th gears. I'm sure there's lots of other things.
