Hey Guys....been researching for a while now and i purchased a 09 wrx 2 weeks ago.....and i have to say....I LOVE IT. I was about to purchase and EVO then i thought about the STi but the dealership was closing down in my area and gave me a really really good deal on an 09 wrx and i see it as a sleeper STi basically. But now since joining the forum i see a few of the engine failure problems....and im wondering...is there anything i can do to prevent it from happening to mine....I really and truly love this car and hope it doesn't continue to happen to others but what can i do???? And i thought this was the same engine they used to use in all the other wrx's so why is this starting to happen now??? Did they change the internals on the engine or something???
