Perfect car for commuting and even some
longer drives. Used mostly in the
winter, as I commute via motorcycle in
the warmer months. Subie is great in
the snow, naturally, though I did add 4
snows to help power through the nasty
winter last season. Fresh snow up to
18" didn't stop her; the spoiler would
plow the snow into my garage if we had
a nasty storm during the day.
If you can get past the interior
plastics and the poor exterior paint
quality when you're driving, and you
don't give a hoot what your snooty
neighbors think, the WRX is an
excellent tool for real driving.
AWD, turbo, reliability
Better brakes for the street (no
initial bite when cold), same option
choices as the turbo Forester would be
nice, but not necessary.
