I am looking to buy a Subaru but I want to see how reliable they are. I have found a 06 STi but it has no engine. According to the mechanic you is working on it says that the engine and transmission in the STi are not reliable. They have also said that they can not find an engine anywhere. I am hoping to get some feedback from people who own an STi on what there reliability is and to see if I can get some info to see if there is a place where I can find an engine to see if it would be worth my while on getting an STi.
