    Alright so let me introduce myself. My name is Kevin and I'm looking at getting my very first WRX or STI. I have been thinking about this for years and now I need some help. Thats where you ladies and gents come in. Im normally a toyota guy because I like to wheel and I live in Nevada so there is quite a few places to go. So like I said I need to do my homework first because you folks know alot more than I about this subject. I just recently got engaged and my fiance and I are looking for something a little more reliable and can take us to the snow here so we can go snowboarding and what not. So please Help!

    Subaru overall reliability is going to be at least initially comparable to Toyota, however I think the Toyotas age better than the turbo Subarus. This may have at least something to do with the use and owner types though.

    If you are looking for a used Impreza find one with zero modifications, a full service history in writing, and ideally a single owner plus a valid remaining warranty. Look at wagons or 5drs if you are into trips and carrying stuff. This means you won't be able to get as much practical use out of any STi model built before 2008 though. The 4drs before then had a rear pass-through for skis but were just not as practical as the wagons, and the 4drs after that were not offered as STi versions.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    I plan on keeping my truck but I would like a subie as my other car. I absolutely love the wagons, but I can't stop thinking about that STI motor and goodies. I just can not get enough of that exhaust note. I'm looking at going brand new because I'm worried about getting a blown turbo with a used subie. Any thoughts?
