2022 Subaru WRX Reliability - Consumer Reports

Subaru WRX

The redesigned 2022 Subaru WRX sticks close to the established formula, with this next-generation best defined by advancements in performance and technology. It features a new 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four engine, with a modest power increase to 271 hp, and a choice of a 6-speed manual and a continuously variable transmission. Suspension and steering changes promise improved handling.


We expect the 2022 WRX to be less reliable than other new cars. This prediction is based on Subaru's brand history, and the redesign is now on the global platform with the turbo engine.

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
