Question What to do with my 09 STi ? quote:

My 2nd engine in my 2009 Subaru STi crapped out last month and after the back and forth with Subaru Canada I've made the decision to not replace the engine. They are willing to give me a new block, but I have to pay for labor and parts which will come out to about ~$10k. Even if I pay $10k to fix it and then sell it, I would not recuperate the cost of fixing it. They won't give me the block to take home or to take to another garage because of "warranty issues".

At this point I don't want to put more money into it and have pretty much moved on.

What should I do? Junk it? Sell the body?

Also I have a decent after market sound system in there, brand new winters, radar, starter...should I strip it?

Just looking for thoughts and opinions.

Thanks!

Take out the stereo, radar, put the stock rims/tires and sell it as-is. I'm sure you wouldn't have difficulty finding someone who would jump at the chance to take that on as a project.

Or Western Subaru Club.

Hell, if the current engine's already been pulled out, you may have already done half the work for someone depending on what they want to do with it.

My first engine had a crack blocked and leaked 1.1L of oil for every 1000km. Replaced at 90,000km.

The second engine had rod bearing failure at about 70,000km. Which apparently is very common in the EJ engines for 2008 and up.

They gave me a choice of choosing a long block or short block (that they will cover). The rest of the parts and labor I'm expected to cover.

My car is currently a Subaru Calgary and they are quoting me $10k. I've asked for a detailed quote and still have not received anything.

I spoke to Centaur Subaru, and within an hour they came back with a written quote and told me a I should go short block and with all parts and potentially machining I would be looking at about $8k (plus tax).
