Hi guys....am planning to get a Subaru Impreza 2014 sti WRX V10. Planning to get this as my primary ride and offload my current 320d to my wife
Coming from a diesel mindset...offcourse fuel is a concern....how well does this car manage fuel considering it's an auto ....if don't tekan.....and only tekan when want to Lepas gian.
Also as usual..spares etc. Monthly budget for maintenance is about RM 1k
Looking for stock one so I can mod and give it my personal touch.
Welcome any comment from owners ...
I was using ver 10 sti but sold it off last 3 years ago.
Got it new so I didn’t have any problems whatsoever. Of my 5 years of ownership, I only had to replace front bad shocks. Took the opportunity to change to adjustable. Quite rough ride but handling is even better.
If you come from 320d to ver10, you’ll definitely feel the pinch in terms of fc. Ver10 averages about 7-8km/l if you drive averagely. Heavy footers will be around 6-7km/l. That’s less than half of your 320d (I know coz I also own a 320d f10). However, the power is excellent. Highway speeding is a breeze. My ‘record’ from KLANG valley to cherating took me about 1hr 45mins. The needle was all the way on the right side. Only once I did it and that’s it...
Top speed can achieve 260kmh. Other than that, it’s a pretty solid build car but am not too sure on 2nd hands and records. Best if you get 2nd hand whose owner bought brand new from Motor Image.
Anyway, good luck in your hunting!
