Hello fellow WRX enthusiasts,
My wife and I will be first time Subaru owners soon. We placed an order today since the color combo my wife wanted is not readily available (San Remo Red exterior with black leather). It appears the red cars are coming out with standard beige interior at the moment.
We have a future visit with the dealer once the car arrives sometime in January. We will need to discuss Service, warranty plans, and financing. My wife will be driving this car about 15,000 miles a year...mostly highway. We were shown the Gold Plus Warranty Plans and they can get very expensive! Are these plans pretty comprehensive? Has anyone had any bad experiences with it? I did see the small print on the pamphlet noting what isn't covered. Any service plan recommendations? I don't intend to modify the car other than tinting the windows....we'll see how long that lasts
I'm concerned about the paint quality of these cars based on what I've read from the "negative" comments about these cars by their owners on several websites. As a matter of fact, our salesman didn't have much to say about my paint concerns other than Subaru's paint jobs are better now than before. Do you think a clear protective film will do the trick considering the number of highway miles this car will see?
I look forward to hearing your replies!
P.S. Garnet Red Metallic isn't available on these cars. We discovered the factory screwed up the window stickers with incorrect paint color descriptions by searching dealer inventories online and then seeing the cars in person. Oh well...I guess truly finding a garnet red WRX would make this car a limited.. limited WRX!
