I've had my 2011 WRX for a little while now and I'm thinking about trading it in for the new FRS/BRZ. I like my WRX but I've had my fair share of problems with the car including some serious clutch issues which required an entire clutch, throwout bearing, master clutch cylinder replacement from the dealership, all covered under warranty of course and some other miscellaneous things that have popped up during the short time I've owned the car.
I like my WRX but I'm just worried more serious problems may arise in the future... especially the dreaded transmission failure or ringland failure that I've been thinking about trading it in or selling for the new FRS/WRX. I only paid $25,000 for my car and have around 17,000 miles on it so I'm sure I'll be able to break even if I decide to sell it but I was just wondering if I could get any other input about my decision.
I know the WRX is awd but I've actually never really had a use for it because I've got a larger SUV I take when I need to go off roading or up to the snow. The FRS/BRZ looks really great and gets better gas mileage.
