    It's been a great 7 years. Honestly the best car I have ever had. Still, with two kids, wasn't practical anymore. Started with 91 miles, finished with 46,600 miles. Sold it to a friend that is going to love it as much as I did. He will keep the mileage low, the maintenance tip top, and keep it tasteful. I am going to miss this car.

    Got your enjoyment out of it though. Can always pick up another down the road a bit.

    I picked up a 2006 Sequoia Limited. Quite the difference between the two. Still miss my WRX though.

    I hope you're happy with your new car!

    Was the WRX your primary family vehicle? I could see where it might run a little small for that, with 2 kids.

    No, we have a CR-V as well, but it also really isn't big enough for any longer duration excursions. When you factor in the stroller (BOB), bicycle, and all the rest of the stuff, we needed to go bigger.

    There's not the community with the Sequoia/Tundra that there is with the WRX/STi, and I think that is something that I will miss. However, I will be looking into the TRD supercharger to somewhat satisfy my desire for horsepower.

    @TurboWill: Thanks. I really loved that car. I'd like to think that even though we tell people not to buy modded cars, mine was one of the exceptions that will be solid for years to come.

    I guess I'm sortof surprised that you didn't opt to trade out the CR-V for the family vehicle, and keep one that has an enthusiast bent to it. I'm sure you have your reasons. Everybody's situation is different.

    YEP - Right with ya... Just got my WRX, and the next purchase (to replace my wife's civic) will be for a "family hauler." Right now we don't have children.

    As for the bump up to sequoia, I just went the other way. From GMC Envoy --> WRX.

    I'm liking the WRX far more... But like I said, no children yet.

    I have a nice setup at present...the wife's minivan for family hauler/vacation car, the 14-year-old Ranger for beater/commuter/Lowes duty, and the WRX for fun.

    Right now we have rotating duty on who picks up the kids depending on who's working what day and what shift. Since she cannot drive a stick (I've tried teaching), having two versatile vehicles is the only option (I also have a 72' F100). This isn't to say that I won't be back in the Subaru family again some day. I've thought about the Forester 2.5XT as well as the Legacy GT.

    It wasn't an easy decision. I miss my WRX immensely.

    It will only get worse. When I sold my first bugeye, every WRX I saw at a stoplight would make me all sentimental.
