Hi all im new to the site and plan on buying a 2005 wrx aspen white if i can get. Kinda wanted to get something diff other then a honda I have owned 3 civics and my current car 97 acura integra ls. Now the ? i have is how much of a power loss is it from getting an automatic wrx rather than a manual ? now your all prob. wondering why I would do this lol reason being I shatterd my left ankle 2 years ago and makes it really hard to clutch and hurts like a mofo when i do. I was also told that the wrx uses a volkswagon engine. not a huge fan of volks in general coming from a honda guy im used to a more reliable engine. Any comments or insight is well appreciated.
