    New Atlanta Area Member


    Hey all,
    Long-time lurker and Subaru enthusiast but have never had the cash for my own WRX, but that is finally about to change after 3 years of work...hopefully by the end of the month so I thought I should get rolling and joined up and introduce myself. I have already absorbed an immense amount of information from this site and think it is great. I'm a long-time resident of Fayetteville, GA, but am currently an Undergrad at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. I've been driving a 1999 GMC Sierra Z71 SLT with a 5.3L V8 (285 HP 315 Torque )for 5 years but gas is killing me. I have my eye on five different black manual trans. 2005 WRX Sedan's, each at a different Atlanta-area dealership but priced about the same. I was wondering if anyone here has any extended experience with any of the Atlanta-area dealerships or has any trustworthy contacts there that I could work with. Any help or advice you could give on the purchase would be great! Love the site! I look forward to being a part of the community.
    Thanks!

    Hey, welcome aboard! Try posting in the regional forums on the bottom of the main page. You might get some Atlanta-specific answers there.

    Isn't it true that gas price in Atlanta is the highest in the country?

    Umm I'm not sure about that - I'm gonna move if it is. Right now we average about $2.30/gallon for regular 87 octane, I'm pretty sure California still has us beat with all their regulations (haha). Of course our gas isnt' all that clean but that's what fuel filter's are for screw emissions

    Thanks guys, looks like I'm going to get it the first week of August, he's selling it for $500 below invoice, so that's pretty cool, no trade-in or anything. Wish me luck!

    Howdy and welcome.. I feel your pain, my backup ride is a 1993 Rodeo. V-6 roughly 180 hp in a 5,000 lb. truck and only gets about 16 mpg . My Bugeye gets between 26-29 mpg ( depending on how I drive ) I love my car...

    I drive almost exclusively on the freeway.. if I had to do a lot of in town driving I'm sure my mileage would be a lot worse..

    Welcome! I hope it all works out and you get a WRX. Mileage seems to be from the upper teens to the mid 20's depending how / where you drive.
