    Last major upgrade for WRX

    I remember that, a few years ago, Subaru softened up the WRX and STI quite a bit. I also remember that when enthusiasts complained, they listened, and upgraded the car again the following model year. What I don't remember is what year that upgrade was in. 2011? I'm interested in buying a used WRX from the model year(s) after that upgrade. Your help is much appreciated!

    You don't want the 2008. No offense to anyone with a 2008. This is highly regarded as the worst year for the wrx.

    Also, 2011 is the year they significantly upgraded the suspension on the STi for the 3rd gen.

    Agreed. Though, I'd never buy a new car during its first production year.

    2009+ and I think you're good. 2008 WRX's are the bastard child in the family.
