    Looking for my first Subaru

    Hi all, I'm a long time Mustang fan, but they're just impractical in this Cleveland weather so I'm looking for something different!

    I test drove a 2010 WRX at a dealer yesterday and walked away completely sold on Subarus. And now my search begins, probably for something in the 2002-2006 range for price reasons. Hope to learn a lot here now that I've been bit by the WRX bug!

    Look for an unmolested and maintained car with a full service history...

    keep in mind too that the '10 has a different engine (2.5L vs 2.0L) and turbo setup than pre '06, so power won't be the same. I recently upgraded from an '08 to an '09 and the difference was immense
