2011 Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti Sedan Left Three Quarter
The Isle of Man TT Motorcycle Race is, given the name, used to seeing lots of two-wheelers. This year, Subaru’s four-wheeled Impreza WRX STI will stand apart from the crowd and take on the island’s narrow and twisty roads, but it’s not the first time a car has tackled the bike course.

The idea driving Beestudio’s Subaru Impreza Berlinetta Rear Engine Concept was a refresh of the Subaru brand using one of its core products. Given Subaru’s recent success, the brand doesn’t really need a refresher, but the concept is certainly interesting, as it shows the possible range of products on one platform.

Subaru Tecnica Institute has produced high-performance vehicles for over 22 years, but for the first time in its history, there may soon be a diesel-powered Subaru Impreza, tuned for performance, in Europe.

Subaru and Cosworth teased us earlier this year with a monster WRX STI, but now the full details on the finished product -- the Cosworth WRX STI CS400 -- have been revealed.

It was 12:45 a.m. and I was bounding down a very dark two-lane country road. Traffic cleared and I hit the high beams. Whoa! These are really, really good: bright as day, very good reach, very strong, uniform beam. A few days later, I drove a Porsche on the same stretch of road, also at night. I didn't find its headlights to be any better than the Impreza's. Very impressive.

The plain-Jane Impreza plays a very convincing Clark Kent to the WRX's Superman. It's pleasant, refined, and generally competent, but doesn't really do anything special. Power from the normally aspirated 2.5-liter engine is sufficient and refined. There's a bit more body roll than expected, but it never seems to upset the Impreza's handling balance. The only real complaint here is with the interior materials, which are much harder than what you'll find on a similarly priced Mazda 3 or Volkswagen Jetta.
1005 01+2010 Subaru Impreza 2 5i Premium+rear Three Quarter View
No, this isn't a WRX, but that doesn't mean a base Impreza isn't at least a little sporty. The 2.5-liter offers a decent amount of pep, and despite having only four gears, the automatic transmission is a good match for this car -- shifts are executed in a smooth, succinct manner, and it loves to hang onto gears when pushed into "sport" mode. I'd love to have one of these as a daily driver -- it's comfortable, somewhat entertaining, and seeing as I do live in mid-Michigan, the all-wheel-drive system is nothing short of a boon.
1005 02+2010 Subaru Impreza 2 5i Premium+front Three Quarter View
Too bad for that four-speed automatic, as it really seems to be holding this Impreza back. No matter how refined your engine or smooth your shifts are, four gears can't provide the bandwidth of acceleration that I expect without a disconcerting shift down to second gear at 50 mph. My other chief complaint is the interior, which is drab and features some questionable panel fits. Take a look at the instrument binnacle crudely cut into the main dash. It's a fine example of what GM might have produced 15 years ago.
1005 03+2010 Subaru Impreza 2 5i Premium+front Three Quarter View
Four score and seven years ago, four speeds in an automatic might have been just fine. But the world has moved on. Just like Eric said, at least the shifts are smooth, but the widely spaced ratios mean either way too many revs or not enough power.

Summary
Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Outback and Legacy, 2008-2011 Impreza and 2008-2014 Impreza WRX/STI, and 2009-2013 Forester vehicles, currently, or formerly, registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Salt water could splash on the brake lines through a gap in the fuel tank protector, resulting in excessive corrosion of the brake lines. Note that affected vehicles not currently, or formerly registered, in the salt belt states identified above are eligible for repair, at no cost to the customer, upon request.
Consequences
Brake line corrosion may result in brake fluid leakage. Fluid leakage may result in longer distances being required to slow or stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will test the brake system by depressing the brake pedal and inspecting for brake fluid leaks. If no brake fluid seepage is observed, the affected areas will be rustproofed with anti-corrosion wax. If brake fluid seepage is observed, the brake lines will be replaced followed by rustproofing with anti-corrosion wax. These services will be performed free of charge. The recall began July 2014 and second notifications will run through November 2014. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's recall campaign number is WQK-47. Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-110 which applied to certain 2005-2009 Legacy/Outback vehicles. Vehicles that were remedied under the previous campaign still need additional areas rust-proofed.
