Question: 06 Subaru WRX Limited

Discussion in 'OT Driven' started by Martin Atchet, Mar 17, 2007.

  1. Ok heres the deal. We are going to trade in our two cars for a Subie and I found this really good condition 06, 11k miles. How are Subaru's for reliability? I took it for a test drive and fell in love with it, it handles so amazing with the AWD, and compared to my 03 Si I love it.

    They want 23k for it, KBB value is 26,7xx

    Tell me what I need to know?

    They're reliable enough, but if you have two people ("we"), then you shouldn't be trading BOTH cars. Two functioning cars > one nice car.
     
  3. The person that drived the other car passed away and left it to me/mom. Mom has a beemer, I have a civic. Lookin for some vroom.

    very nice cars! I have an STI and it was rated to be very reliable by Consumer Reports. the downfall to subarus as of recently is body integrity, which I think means body rattling and such. so far, no problems with my car and i've had it over a year now.

    Ah. Go with the Subie then, though to be honest you can get some vroom with any of Subaru's turbocharged cars, and the WRX is going to be the least comfortable of the lot. You might want to trade some horsepower for nicer seats and whatnot, since you won't always be going fast in the car, but you will always be sitting.
     
  6. We decided not to actually. I didn't realise how much insurance was on those things!

    Check the insurance on a turbo Impreza or a turbo Legacy.

    Maybe he meant to say Forester.
     
  10. When I get out of school I will get one. I will be in the army then paying for insurance and not even being able to drive it probably haha.

    Wrx's are very reliable cars if treated well.
