I think this has been asked before, and sorry if it has, but since we now know more about the STi will it have a high maintanence schedule like the Evo?

Accumulator on shocks and struts

Hi,

The EVO required maitenance is:

1. Change oil and filter at 3,500 or 5,000 miles depending on use. (race or carpool). :)
2. Rotate tires every 5,000 miles.
3. That's it.

Are you talking tire wear and brake pads and stuff like that?

Speedlimit...... :)

Just because it will be the same schedule as a WRX doesn't mean it will be the same cost. :)

For instance, I bet Brembo brake pads cost more than Subaru WRX pad's. :)

The price of performance, I am willing to pay it. :D

Hey all,

The question that I have and maybe Murley can answer it. When the car has to be taken in for maint does it have to be taken to a dealer that is "STi" qualified like the SVT Cobra? Or can pretty much anyone service it?

I was under the impression it was illegal to devoid a warranty if you don't take a car to the dealer for servicing. Actually I'm pretty sure it is. I don't see how Ford can get away with this for the SVT Cobra. Just as long as you have records of regular service, your warranty can not be voided.

Well, no. You can do standard service..., ie oil, coolant, tranny fluid, the basic stuff can be done anywhere. Now, if you have a problem with something, then it has to come back to a dealership for the warranty purposes.

Brief summary on Autos.msn

Murley (or anyone): Do you know what the warranty will be for STi? Same as for WRX? Or will there be special additions/omissions?

Amdmaxx, the standard bumper to bumper is 3/36000. The Power train is 5/60,000. That will be the STi's also.

You're right JJ...the front set of pads will cost about $370 and the rears will cost about $360 a set...at least that's retail. I'm getting this info from a friend of mine who is a parts manager for a dealership in the southeast.
