But for those of us who like the idea of the Crosstrek and would miss all…
Jonathan Corbett from New York loves his Subaru WRX STI. But he loves his daughter more. In what comes off at first as a typical Craigslist ad, he closes by mentioning the car for sale is to raise money for stem cell therapy that he hopes will help heal his 5-year-old daughter’s brain, which suffered damage during…
What makes the Subaru WRX so magical? Is it symmetrical all-wheel drive? Turbocharging? The flat-brimmed hat that is required to operate one?

Right on the outskirts of Tokyo, roughly an hour away by train, you can find in an unassuming and quiet suburb the headquarters of one of the most revered three-letter combinations in all of motoring: STi.

For over a decade now, Subaru WRX and WRX STI drivers have gotten into their cars, glanced at the ceiling, realized it was made entirely of used wet cardboard, and entirely didn’t care because the car went like hell and was stupid levels of fun. Now Subaru’s gone and made the thing even faster, but with more sound…
And you wonder why the Subaru WRX has a reputation for rowdiness.

Here's the thing about life in 2015: we have cameras following us everywhere. This means maybe you should think twice before throwing shit at other drivers on the highway and brake-checking them in your sweet Subaru WRX hatchback.
The Subaru WRX is a fantastic hoon machine, but it must be kept in the right hands. One brand new owner says he took his car into the dealer for check-engine light and an easy repair only to have someone there "borrow" the car to take it to class and then wreck it.
Before we get into the opinions about the new 2015 Subaru WRX, let's get some basic facts out of the way. It still has 268 horsepower. It still has full-time all-wheel-drive. And now it has the long-heralded infinitely-geared scepter of driving fun death, a Continuously Variable Transmission. But let me blow your…
As the first big snows of winter start falling in much of the United States, it's time for another reminder that not even your precious all-wheel drive will save you from the devil that is Summer Tires in the Snow, and his minions Understeer and Pole. UPDATE
