Disgruntled Subaru Forester, Outback, Legacy, Impreza and Crosstek owners whose cars burned more oil than usual can rest a little easier today. Top Class Actions reports that owners of the defective engines will be reimbursed by Subaru for expenses related to the defect and given a longer warranty.
Does writing whimsical posts about cars qualify one to buy a 17-year-old Japanese car in Eastern Europe? It does not! The true story of a doomed voyage to Armenia and my volatile love affair with a Subaru Sumo.
On my tombstone they will carve, IT NEVER GOT ECONOBOX ENOUGH FOR ME. I was a slave to those small engines, those dizzying peaky horsepower numbers lower than the fuel economy sticker, those Macpherson Struts. I’m getting sweaty just thinking about it. But mopeds? That was a bridge too far, or so I thought.
As a younger man, I spent a lot of time around modified Subarus. I gained a great deal of knowledge and experience (or so I thought) to the point where I decided to attempt motor swap. I parked my car in my mother’s garage for what I thought would be the very last time it would ever be naturally-aspirated. Boy was I…
This is the Subaru Impreza Sedan Concept. On the one hand, it feels like a knife to the heart, because you know the production car will never look this good. But it’s also interesting, because it shows the future of the entire company.
Since we’re on the subject of Colin McRae today, here’s a shot from the archives of the man doing what he did best.
This weekend at the World Rally Championship’s Wales Rally GB, there’s a bit of magic in the air. It’s the 20 year anniversary of Colin McRae’s first WRC drivers title win that he earned with Subaru.

All we know is, it’s…
Subaru is unveiling a brand new Impreza concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week, and that’s all well and good. But while the company just released this weird teaser image, we pretty much already know what it’s going to look like.
Good Morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.

It also comes with the best safety warning I’ve heard in a long time.
The Tokyo Motor Show is here, and you know what that means: automotive blue balls! That’s right, it’s the time when we get to stare at sweet concept cars that won’t make it to our roads until they’ve been sucked dry of every ounce of soul and character! Awesome!
Based off of the WRX STI, Subaru is producing 400 units of a limited-edition model they’re calling the S207, which is so good the company is claiming it the “world’s most enjoyable vehicle.” It looks as much!
While the world was drooling (or seething) over the Mazda RX-Vision Concept’s Tokyo Motor Show debut, Subaru dropped something much more pedestrian. Behold the next Impreza, in concept form. It is slightly more interesting-looking than the current Impreza!
