    Top gear also named it the car of the year.

    However, these magazine do not have to worry about repairing the vehicle. All they worry about is how it performs for the dollar.

    Yeah, I never said it was a slouch in the performance category which is all these magazines care about. Pick up the copy of Consumer Reports and see how they rated it.

    Here are some Consumer Reports, MSN and CNNMoney articles with Consumer Reports info.

    This article summarizing Consumer Reports' 2006 reliability survey. Subaru Impreza WRX is listed third as Most Reliable in the Sporty Cars/Convertible/Coupes category. Least Reliable in the Small Cars category in the VW Jetta 2.5, as well as the VW Passat 2.0T in the Family Cars category. I think this survey was done before the 2.0T was availble in the Jetta and GTI. Keep in mind there are many cars in between. These two columns simply list the best of the best (Most Reliable) and worst of the worst (Least Reliable).

    MSN.com: http://autos.msn.com/advice/CRArt.as...tentid=4023544

    This article states the Subaru Impreza WRX/STi is a 2006 Top Pick in the "Fun To Drive" category.

    ConsumerReports.org: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/c...icks/index.htm

    CNNMoney.com: http://money.cnn.com/popups/2006/aut...n.exclude.html

    Here is an article from ConsumerReports.org listing the Best and Worst Used Cars. Every Subaru model listed is a "Consumer Reports Good Bet" and every VW model listed is a "Consumer Reports Bad Bet."

    I enjoyed mine, too. It was the first car I had in awhile with a wide range of fairly affordable parts and mods, besides my Mustang GT. I definitely don't miss being the backyard mechanic though when stuff went wrong. That's what ultimately turned me off to Audi/VW. They sure look nice though, you gotta give 'em that.
