    Reasons for buying a wagon?

    Im a young guy in college and I just want to know, all you wagon owners out there, what was your reasoning for buying one?

    *The reason why I ask is I have the chance to buy a 2003 WRB WRX Wagon for $13k with 30K on it*

    Because nobody expects a wagon.

    They have a lot of room, which makes it great for me at college, and I like the look of them. You see lots of sedans on the road everyday, but you don't always see a sport wagon

    wagons are cooler and they have more of a sleeper style look than a sedan. Plus I do alot of catering and deliveries so my wagon's rear trunk space with the seats down is used often. I love it. Wagon Mafia FTW

    It's alot lower profile. I had the sedan and thought it was prettier but on many occasions when I found myself being paced relentlessly by yet another CHP I started wondering if maybe the wagon would have been better.

    lol

    The reason why I ask is because I am caught dead between a 2003 WRB wagon, or a 2006 OBP Sedan. Wagon has 30k, Sedan has 10.5k. I'm a little shady on the sedan though since the guy that traded it in threw on some rimmzzz and a three guage tree, meaning he could have modded it, beaten it, then traded.

    Its a limited too! Just what Im looking for.

    oooh OBP sedan so pretty.

    If it seems shady though don't do it. Not worth the risk.

    Well...

    I had an 04 wrx psm sedan. When the incidents occured with it and it was being replaced, my choices we're limited to 06 leftovers. That being said, the only leftover 06s within a short drive of me we're wagons (both limited, one in SGM, and mine in OPB), I'm sure I could have found a leftover limited sedan if I had searched long enough, but when I saw the wagon in person, It just got me....a) it was different than what I had been driving b) its stealth to punk-a$$ ricers c) its stealth to the law enforcement officers d) I wouldn't say its more roomy neccessarily but more versatile, you can use the room their is much more effectively, example the other day I had four tire/wheels in the trunk, a few suitcases and some other goodies and had a little room for more, basically you can throw down all the seats and you've got a grocery/luggage/item hauler and you still have a WRX!!!

    Ultimately, I just wanted something different, and even when I was hesitating, I came on here and saw some dead sexy wagons....


    I believe this was the wagon that made my decision a no brainer....

    Oh I know! I was looking at some used STis but decided "Why bother, they've been beaten on".

    Oh, I forgot the main reason.

    I get 39% more ass with a wagon.
