Wrausarex (please Keep Your Hands In The Vehicle At All Times). — One of best decisions I've made was trading in my 2004 WRX for an 09 WRX! Although I think my 04 looked Beefy like the Incredible Hulk... this WRX has the little niceties (MP3, Bluetooth - phone, Satellite Radio) which as I become older learn to appreciate more & more. The Dunlop's SP Sport 01 seems to be lasting longer than my old WRX (Bridgestone Potenza's). Both tires are very noisy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 0-60 5.0-5.2 seconds!!! Sleeper most people have no idea how quick it is.  When you really get on it once the turbo kicks in you've got "G's" :-)    ...what a blast.  The quality is the same as the BMW owned previously without the stuffiness.  It's simply FUN!

Cons: Way to easy to speed (look out for Barney).  I'd never promote speeding except on a closed course.  My treat is entering the highway (poof!).  Wheel color is a mystery (Subaru will only advise it's gray)!  Really! I'd Love to know why the wheel color is so mysterious.

Compact Sedan That Can Transport The Family With Coupe Sports Car Performance. — The price point of the WRX model is unbeatable for an AWD car and the engine build quality of Subaru. I can say that after 23000 miles, I have had no problems besides the routine maintenance. Change oil, filter, and fluids at the proper intervals and this car will last a long time.

Pros: The WRX is the best performance bargain on the market. I don't know of any turbo charged AWD boxer engine cars for under $45 grand. These cars are easy to tune and adding a performance exhaust unlocks 20%+ horse power instantly. The car is comfortable and a good daily driver, which makes it much more enjoyable during the weekly commute than a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. The seats are comfortable. The only downside is the interior, but if you wanted "Kultur" and performance, you would pay up for an Audi. M3, or Porsche!

Cons: Budget car plastic interior in certain areas to control costs.

Out Of All The Cars Ive Ever Owned, Aussie, Euro,british This Is The Most Fun For Your Money — i waited 15 years to get my first Rex, i drove one of the first in Australia 15yrs ago. just a few low cost mods and it is better than the STi (more power, torque, less insurance!!!) 9.8litres /100Km city driving.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Bang for your bucks? you betcha!

Cons: hold on to your drivers license, very easy to go too fast

Wrx=fun — Performance- AWD is amazing on the subi's. Very quick car for the money. Good handling, slightly stiff for my taste.0- 60 in 4.7. Build Quality- Runs strong, no problems. Appearance- Very sleek car. Fits the look of todays cars. Changed alot from old but i love it. Cost of Ownership- Gas mileage isnt too bad especially when staying out of the turbo. Can get slightly over 30 MPG hwy. Fun Factor- If you ever get a chance to drive it, take it. Blows your mind for a stock tuner.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: performance, appearance, fun factor

Cons: performance upgrades are expensive

After Co-owning An Evo X, I Absolutely Love This Car & Will Be A Die Hard Subie Owner Indefinitely! — I wish that the interior was nicer! Maybe leather, a better stereo, heated seats, stuff like that... Performance is amazing, the more you add the better it gets! Holds up well to heavy driving! Gas mileage?? I run e85 now, and that makes me go about 230 miles to 14.5 gallons of gas. Not good at all :(

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Easy to modify to exactly what you want!

Cons: Cops love pulling me over & if possible giving me tickets!
