The Class Action Lawsuit says that 2012-15 Impreza models with vin # ***** 270253. So is this vin # ***** below? I'm not sure how to read vin numbers. You're the expert. Relying on your answer.

2013 impreza 5 door cvt

Below D*886714

Your vin is D*891756

You are just over which means your engine should already have the redesigned piston rings.

Are you able to get the engine number at all? Its stamped on the top of the transmission on the drivers side.

I can't at this time, since car is in Atlanta and I'm in Charleston, SC. I can ask the sales person to get it for me when I talk with them in a few and get back to you.
