    newbie with a question

    Hi guys,
    yes im a new member in this forum, i don't have a wrx..yet, i have been researching cars and the 09 or newer models really is what i'm going. just love the looks, performance and awd. i'm purchasing in the next couple of days, its used 2009, hatchback blue.

    Anything else I need to know of owning a wrx? I am a little woried about maintenance and gas. Maybe insurance not quite, im an adult (29) with clean, no tickets whatsoever. I know it runs on 91 octane..how's maintenance?

    Please help.
    No offense to my name, it's just I hate camry's, I have always been behind camry's, very slow, always causing traffic.

    Thanks for all your inputs.

    i've had my wrx for almost 5 years now. maintenance is GREAT. the only thing that i've done is my regular oil changes (every 3k), change the tires 2 times, & get brake pads.

    gas isnt that bad either. 93 oct here is roughly 3.30$-3.40$ and it costs me about $40 to fill up. i can usually get 310 miles to a tank. (this is on my 06.. not sure how the 09 will do.. should be pretty similar depending on driving style/highway/city/etc)

    that's great, yeah i can understand regular maintenances..even so, subaru's are greatly built cars, i'd guess..i even have a ford before and the car just wont break..hope subaru will treat me the same as well. i currently have an 09 forester for almost a year now, still runs like new. thanks
