well in 1987 I bought the Subaru RX. 1.8 turbo and fell in love! 25 years later I 'am on my second WRX, So at 44 I guess I dont care what people think! If you own a WRX you will know why. As far as the car your getting for the price there is nothing out there to compare. I live in Minnesota so I 'am covered for any weather that is thrown at me.
