What are some common problems with the Subaru WRX?
I’ve always loved watching rally car racing and I’m partial to the Subaru WRX. A guy at my church is selling one, so I’m ready to pull the trigger, just so long as it doesn’t have too many issues. Are there any common problems with the Subaru WRX?
Answer provided by
With a 77 out of 100 reliability score from U.S. News & World Report and an 82 out of 100 score from J.D. Power, the Subaru WRX has an average dependability rating, but one that’s far lower than other Subaru models. Still, it’s the only rally car option from the Japanese automaker, so a bit of car care and maintenance is essential. Make sure to look out for these common Subaru WRX problems:
- Complete failure of the turbocharger over time
- Failing gaskets and seals that can cause the engine to leak oil
- Engine misfiring for various reasons
