My previous car was a Honda that went
for 400K miles. A hard act to follow.
The WRX is a hoot to drive and in wagon
form is very practical as a daily
The WRX's handling is amazing,
especially with 17" rims and high
performance tires. Driving this car in
the winter gives you a sense of
security and safety.
To gripe about something, the WRX is
very addictive. You get accustomed to
what it does. The WRX is so smooth and
competent, that it starts to feel
slow. Thankfully there is an abundance
of aftermarket performance options.
I can't recommend the WRX highly
enough, unless you are into spending
10K to 15K more for "prestige".
Handling. AWD. 5 speed Shifter (very
positive and smooth). Ergonomics --
simple and well designed. Seats.
Reliability. Bat out Hell speed.
Excellent highway manners. Stealthy.
Heated seats as an option. OEM gauge
package that includes a factory turbo
gauge. HID lights.
SUBARU -- make a STI WAGON!! I'd buy
one in a second.
