Inspired by Subaru's factory-backed FIA World Championship Rally series race cars and tuned for maximum performance, the 2021 Subaru WRX STI will overwhelm the faint of heart. In fact, the STI's finicky turbocharged flat-four cylinder engine and firm suspension can startle even ardent driving enthusiasts. However, its tenacious all-wheel-drive system and manual-only transmission are notable hallmarks of the sporty Subaru sedan. And if the STI is too spicy for you, there's always the less edgy-albeit-still-raw WRX. While the STI lacks the cargo space of rival hi-po hatchbacks such as the Honda Civic Type R, it's better equipped to conquer terrain in all four seasons thanks to its all-wheel drive. Sure, its noisy operation and other obsolete attributes will cause some shoppers to spurn it, but the car's rawness and rowdiness will fascinate masochists, er, purists.
What's New for 2021?
The 2021 WRX STI carries over with almost no changes. The base model does now come standard with passive hands-free entry and push-button start.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
It's hard to justify the extra cost of the Limited trim level versus the base WRX STI, because all the performance is standard on both models. As a result, the rational half of our brain says go with the base version. It still comes with a 7.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, and 19-inch wheels wrapped with summer tires.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The WRX STI's turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four is eager to rev and pumps out a characteristic flat-four burble from the car's quad exhaust pipes. But this old engine is not as smooth or as hard-hitting as the smaller turbo fours powering the Subie's closest peers. Along with some initial lag from the big turbo spooling up, the engine's lack of low-end grunt manifests in a short, punchy power delivery that can be cumbersome around town. Working its standard six-speed manual gearbox is a must to keep the car pulling strongly, including abusive, high-rpm clutch drops to achieve maximum acceleration from a standstill. Driven with full fury, however, the STI's controls sync together effectively. With its buttoned-down chassis and all-wheel-drive traction, the STI is more athletic and enjoyable on twisty back roads than the workaday WRX. The firm suspension keeps excessive body motion in check at the expense of some ride comfort on rougher pavement, but this hottest Subaru is still livable as a daily driver for enthusiasts. Its electrically assisted steering is quick, direct, and blessed with moderate feel, while the adjustable center differential allows the driver to further fine-tune the chassis by varying the drivetrain's front-to-rear torque split. The STI's pedals are nicely spaced for race-driver-like heel-and-toe downshifts, with the firm brake pedal returning good initial bite and easy modulation.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The WRX STI's engine is larger and of an older design than most of today's hot four-cylinders, which, in combination with the Subaru's short gearing, means it is the least frugal in its class. In terms of fuel-economy ratings, the EPA estimates that some four-wheel-drive mid-size pickups will actually take you farther on a gallon of gas than the STI. The government rates the zestiest WRX at 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. During our 200-mile fuel-economy test, it beat its highway rating by 3 mpg (25 total)—but that still trails rivals by several mpg.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
As with most sport-compact cars, the WRX STI's humble origins are most visible inside its cabin, which is pretty basic in quality, layout, and feature count. Despite the red seatbelts and red accents on the optional Recaro seats, the ambience is rather dark, and the updated materials and additional sound insulation do little to elevate the STI's trappings proportionately with its price. The STI is fairly capacious considering its three-box sedan body, thanks to a roomy trunk and a 60/40-split-folding rear seat. However, all of the Subaru's competitors are hatchbacks that offer greater versatility for swallowing cargo. It has adequate storage for small items on its center console, with the main spots being its console bin and smallish door pockets.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Along with a 5.9-inch color information screen atop the dash, the STI comes standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen that supports Subaru's Starlink infotainment system. While not the most advanced or highest-resolution setup on the market, it operates intuitively and has a range of modern features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, however, are not among them.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The WRX earned a five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and it was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Driver-assistance technology is not found on most rally cars, so Subaru leaves it up to the driver to control the STI. However, it is available with a couple key safety features, including:
- Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
Subaru's warranty coverage is pretty standard for this class of compact hatchbacks. While Hyundai provides the Veloster N hot hatch with complimentary maintenance, the WRX and the rest of its competitors go without.
- Limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles
- No complimentary scheduled maintenance

Torque Spec? - Tranny Case
Postby skid542 »
As you know, I took the plunge and completely opened up a tranny to clean it out and make sure it was right. Now it's ready to go back together and I'd like to get that done this weekend. I'm starting to get close to getting the famous Radio Flyer back on the road .
But I can't seem to find the torque specs for the case bolts on Josh's site. I don't know, maybe I'm just being an idiot and overlooking them but I don't see the page. It seems that the page I need isn't listed, i.e. I can find the page before and the page after but not the middle page. I've got everything cleaned and ready to go back together but just need some torque specs for the main case, i.e. two halves.
Any help or guidance you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

I replaced the gasket on my 1993 Legacy Turbo automatic AWD a few months back and torqued the bolts down to what I remember to be a measurement in inch pounds. When I first drove it after the replacement I smelled a burning oil smell which I wrote off to some engine grime that had collected on my exhaust somewhere when I pressure washed the engine compartment. I now know from adding a few quarts over time that it is leaking again and has gotten gradually worse and that it is coming from the pan gasket and flinging up onto my exhaust. I guess I have to re-torque those bolts again or I never had the correct torque values to begin with. What is the correct value so I can quit buying tranny fluid every week.
She called at about midnight and said that she was in Podolsk with her friends and that she urgently needed to return her father's Lexus to the parking lot, but. She could not get behind the wheel herself, because I drank a lot. The request was that I would come to Podolsk and take her and the Lexus wherever it was required.
I came and did what she asked. As was the case during our acquaintance, I refused money, but she was restless.

Therefore, the wife easily managed to swallow them completely. - Stop sucking. Lick her. At least you will find out that such a real cunt is, and not your little wet babes. Since the members of the guys were already ready, the wife got up, threw off her dress and was left only in a bodysuit with an open chest and groin.
