    Is the wrx worth it?

    Hey guys!
    Right now I have a 2002 SVT focus. Yes I know it's just a focus, but power to weight ratio is amazing. It can out handle anything.

    I'm looking to get a new car and I have always been a fav of subaru. I'm looking at some 2002-2005 wrx's.

    I know that ya'll love your cars, but I'm not sure if it's worth it.

    I am also looking into an evo. Price wise is kinda high, hince why I'm trying a wrx.

    What do you think I should do?
    Pro's and con's of the wrx.

    The wrx will be faster than your focus. The WRX is very easy and relatively cheap to mod, AWD is better in bad weather, and has decent cargo space. Con's doesn't get as good of gas mileage as some other similar 4 cylinder cars, handling is only "ok" stock (but is easy to mod and can be great), and the transmission doesn't tolerate a lot of abuse.

    The WRX is a good car if it fits your needs. The question is whether it fits your needs, if you can afford it and if you want it.

    The evo will be the faster car but it does cost more.

    Hello and welcome to tthe club!

    The SVT Focus is a quick, nimble car. The WRX will easily out run it and with some suspension tweaking will be every bit as much fun (or more) in the twisties.
