THe tranny's go if you rod the s&*# out of them or have way to much horsepower. But you can go get a Ra gear set and that fixes that problem. I mean you have to worry about crank walk and we have to worry about tranny's. Every car has a certain problem. If you dont mod it too much i bet the tranny would last.

how much HP r u talking about,like 500+ if i do get a wrx i was thinken about 350 hp? is the tranny issue overrated like crankwalk in dsms?

I dont really know that much but i would say that 350 is a bit iffy from what i have heard. If your doing 5k launches it would toast your clutch and transmission, If you drive it normal it will last a while. I will say it wont break as much as a dsm. You dont have as many maintenance issues. It will also be tough to get to 350 horse without a good sum of money. My dsm broke all the time and my wrx is working pretty good right now.

350 crank or WHP? Your tranny will last as long as you don't abuse it. I have heard people breaking trannies w/ stock cars, and I know people pushing 300 WHP who are still on their stock tranny.

The tranny issue is overblown like the crank walking issue. I wouldn't worry about it. If you lasted through a DSM you will last through an Impreza. It is the 7th most reliable car after all according to Consumer Reports.
