Nothing. Nothing is not to love. Well, almost. AutoWeek's editors cherish the power in the STi, one even claiming that it "inspired [him] to drive as often as I would in something like a Porsche, which is to say a lot." They think the '05 model is nicely improved over the '04, with new rear suspension links and a front limited-slip differential to further help put the horses to the gravel. The interior is pretty snazzy too for a car that focuses so intensely on performance. Although grudgingly accepted as "functional," the only real question mark about the STi is its appearance: radical, overdone, straight off the rally course, impossible to ignore, and thus impossible to operate stealthily. But from a driving perspective, "on a fun meter from one to 10, the STi is an 11."
