I read an online review before I test drove and purchased my 2017 STI. The author wrote that the 2017 STI was just like the 2004 STI. He was right. However, he thought that was a bad thing. I think its a great thing. This is my 5th Subaru and second STI. It is what you think it will be. A tried and true STI. Gas mileage is bad. Seats are not comfortable on long drives and the interior is blah. But it goes like nothing else. I may not outrun a SRT Charger, a Mustang GT or even a Tesla in a 1/4 mile, but lets go down the windy roads or in some snow and see what happens. For a daily driver it is not the fastest, 0-60 in 4.6 on a good launch, the prettiest, or most comfortable; But, it is fun as all get out to drive. That's what you buy an STI for, to drive!
