Just bought a new used silver 2000 WRX STI sedan. It was inspected by 2 independent shops (who both gave it 4 stars or better out of 5 in every category) and got its Japanese National inspection as well (perfect score on everything). Nonetheless the car had serious engine troubles right off the lot! WTF?!?!? So it went directly to a Subaru dealer for a complete check. Needed a radiator hose, O2 sensor, spark plug wires, and coils... WTF?!?!? It was all covered by the car company that sold it to me (Nextage) but it should never have been let off the lot in such bad condition. Especially after I told the salesman that I wanted him to make double sure everything was in good running order (here in Japan you can not usually test drive a car before buying it) because my last car was a nightmare (E Class Brabus Benz). He assured me that they checked everything thoroughly and replaced everything that needed replacing (the rotors and pads were replaced up front). So although I am now the owner of an STI, I am driving a rental car yet again. WTF!?!?!?
