Traded Lexus RX300 for WRX & feel 20
yrs younger. Very fun w ample
storage for activities. 9500 mi. Took
time to learn power characteristics
(weak low end). Rough throttle tip-in w
somewhat lumpy power band. Superb
traction & AWD system. Very tossable w
some understeer (sedans have bigger
rear sway bar than wagons). Likes being
driven aggressively. Easily squirts
though traffic. Stable & relatively
quiet hiway cruiser (w16s, 17s noisier,
rougher ride based on test drive). Some
rattles but curable. Solid chassis.
Stereo upgrade barely acceptable.
Better mileage than expected.
Exceptional paint. Would buy again.
Great dealer experience.
