    Subaru and Mitsubishi nicely bridged a gap for us, giving us a decently-performing car in a reasonable price range that can still haul 4 people and gear comfortably. It's a "kid's car" that's somewhat practical, and a lot of folks don't quite know what to think of it when a 44-year-old dude drives up in it. Sometimes it's a nice conversation starter. "What the heck is that thing? A wagon with a hood scoop on the front?"

    Excellent work. Looks like I'm slightly older than the average.

    The funny thing is, this is really only of those who post in this forum, which could be representative of who posts in the forums, period. I'm willing to bet that many who do own WRXs and STIs aren't really readily involved in forum life...and many I'd be willing to bet are more of a "blue collar" owner who don't have a chance to sit at a computer all day...which IMO, would explain why the 20-29 age group would be the largest group (younger, more involved in the internet age).

    It would be nice to know accurate (non-forum) statistics for ownership, broken down by age, year and model.
    "Thanks for buying a WRX from us, today, sir! Now, would you mind filling out this 6-page questionnaire to satisfy the curiosity of a bunch of nerds on a forum? Great!"

    This wouldn't work. I guarantee that the act of filling out a 6-page questionnaire is in-and-of-itself age-biased. i.e. a professional 50-yo man/woman is much more likely to complete the questionnaire vs. a 16-yo high school student.... of course, that is "on-average," but statistically the case.

    After I bought the car,I filled out 2 surveys from Strategic Vision.There purportedly was even prizes involved,One First Prize winner - $10,000.00,Two Second Prize winners – An iPad*,Ten Third Prize winners – An iPhone**none if which I assume I won because I have never heard about it again.
    If anyone is interested maybe they can shoot them an email asking them what the average age is,although I don't think they'd disclose their findings Strategic Vision - Press Contacts
