    Excuses my wife uses to drive my WRX

    Okay, so....

    I've had my WRX since 14 Feb. My wife jumped up and down when I bought it, insisting I didn't need "all that fancy stuff" in a car. Now that I have it she has come up with all kinds of crazy excuses to borrow my car.

    Example 1: "Its raining/snowing out and your car has AWD". Okay this actually would be a good excuse except AWD was one of those features she insisted I would never need or use.

    Example 2: "I have to go over the narrows bridge and the wind blows my Mazda Tribute around. I want to drive your car since its lower and more aerodynamic". Huh? So you want to drive my WRX all day for the benefit of going across a bridge for 2 minutes and I have to drive your Mazda Tribute all day?

    and may fav Example 3: "its that time of the month and my menstrual cycle gives me lower back pain. I want to drive your car since it has heated seats helps releive my back pain." What? No! I don't want you road raging around my WRX while your "menstrating"! After all its only a few months old and I wouldn't want the new car smell to be ruined!

    so who else out there has had some crazy excuses from wives, girlfriends, friends or family memebrs asking to borrow your car?

    Please share

    I'd prefer to be chauffeured around frankly. If she actually wants to drive, fantastic.

    My girlfriend can't drive my WRX. She doesn't have the physical strength to depress the clutch pedal.

    Ditto original post. Took a long time and many arguments to get her to accept a WRX. Once she drove it she would like to have it herself. Instead she gets to drive the old Sidekick or the RAM, whatever the need dictates. But she's talking to buy another WRX for herself later this yaer or next.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Same. My wife can't push the clutch far enough to get into first even with the seat all the way forward.

    Combine that with the fact she can't drive a stick to save her life, and thus I never have a problem with her stealing the WRX.

    I do want her to learn in case of an emergency, though.

    My girlfriend is tall enough, but not strong enough. She has a Stage 2 LGT anyway...she can drive that.

    I've had to split custody of the WRX with my wife. She love's driving it.

    I was proud of her Tuesday when the guy at her work asked if that was her WRX, she replied "yes, it's stage 2 Torqued Performance" He replied "wow..."
    Don't think he expected something intelligent to come out her mouth, I know I didn't :-)

    wife can't drive a stick. I want her to learn but now that I've done the exhaust so its pretty loud I don't think she wants to drive it. Wish I had a black wrx and id get her a set of pink wheels to drive around while I'm deployed. Then again I could just paint my already painted wheels for her...

    It's a heavy duty pressure plate with a sprung 6 puck...to get the pedal all the way down she has to stand on the damn thing.
