Question 2010 Subaru Impreza STi Help

Hi All,

I'm looking at buying a new STi but reading here and there about engine failures.

The question I have is what are the known problems with this model before I make up my mind.

I've not herd anything about the new STI, but it would be under warrenty.
There was a valve problem with the 03 STI around 80k miles,

The failures were mainly caused by a dodgy factory map. Subaru released a fix for this so any car you look at make sure it has the ECU fix. Would imagine a new car would be fine though.

As Matt says though, any issues you do have should be repaired under warranty anyway.
