Is a Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS reliable?

Which Subaru engines to avoid?

Subaru 2.5-L Turbo Four Cylinder

Owners of 2009-14 Subaru Impreza WRX and WRX STI models have launched a class-action lawsuit, alleging the pistons and PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) systems in the high-performance 2.5-L turbocharged engines may overheat or malfunction, requiring a king's ransom in repairs.

Why are Subarus so unreliable?

One of the core reasons that Subaru reliability has dropped is due to the problems that the Outback and Legacy have had with in-car technology. This is a common reason for declining dependability in a number of makes and models since the early 2000s. Many cars today have a great deal of new and complex technology.

How long do Subaru 2.5 engines last?

Is a 2006 WRX reliable?

The best bet is to go with a 2006 WRX. All of the bugs from early models appear to have been worked out by 2006 as this model has received the least amount of NHSTA complaints. As well, this was the year when the WRX received the larger 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, although some cars have had issues with it.
