Anyone have experience with these? I'm looking at the non sti models.

I had an 07 sti but I guess that's no help. Free bump.

The gas ain't cutting it on the taco. It's roughly 50 miles round trip to school every day plus I've had problems with the taco. Sadly I think the tranny is screwed partly my fault.

Get the Sti. Lol. No WRX is sick my buddies got an 09. One thing he wishes is that it had the 6 speed. If you are going to mod and increase HP, the 5 speed doesn't hold up ever well

My 07 had big problems with the ecu and some major hesitation at full throttle. Ended up throwing a rod through the block after I sold it. Was a known problem on the 07s but they probably fixed it on later models I would imagine.

I read something similar about the 08 but the review I read was on an sti. I'd take an sti over an EVO mainly cuz Mitsubishis rep

FYI WRX MPG isn't much better than the Taco.

On a side note there isn't a day that goes by where I didn't with I went for a fast car and this one was on the list.

Yes but it was useless for anything and everything, except having fun.

Hence the trade in for the taco
