I'm shopping to purchase a wrx wagon / hatch.
Have test driven 6 so far...all overpriced and in bad condition, maybe my luck will change soon?
1989 foxbody notchback, h/c/i + 14psi procharger, 5 lug/big brakes/road race car
2002 f150 harley supercrew, 15psi out of a ported stock supercharger
2014 forester XT touring - wifes car
1996 tahoe sport 2dr 4x4 w/383 stroker vortec & built trans
1997 mustang cobra w/2003 cobra IRS & suspension upgrades, was mainly an autox car
Basically looking for something to replace both the tahoe and cobra...wrx wagon/hatch seems to fit the bill nicely. I like the shifter feel in the `09 STI better that I drove than any of the wrx's (`04, `06, `13).
Tough to decide if I want something cheaper that I can buy with cash (02-07) or the newer hatch body style of an 08+...but when spending 16-18k for an 08+ hatch, why not spend 20k and get an 08+ sti?! Tough choice - but from looking around it looks like the sti's don't get as good gas mileage on hwy trips - I drive from socal to CO pretty often, which is a 2400+ mile round trip, so getting something with 25+ hwy mpg is a large goal.
