I'm looking into either a honda civic or a subaru impreza. Heard they're both reliable cars, run forever, and that they hold their value.
I'm leaning towards subaru but....
I just want to make sure I'm not getting into a money trap as far as repairs with a subaru. What's been your experience with repairs when they've come up with a Subaru? Even for just regular maintenance? (I'm planning on buying an older model so some maintenance is inevitable). I hear hondas run forever and are cheap to fix if needed. Same hold true for subarus? thoughts?
let's be honest, subarus are tighter cars than hondas but i'm looking for longevity, reliability, and least cost in repairs. (I'm leaving a bmw behind to go this route and so i've had a horrible experience in the money trap of repairs.)
Thanks for the help!
