    Looking into a new WRX

    Hey all, new member here. Ive been looking for a new car and thought this would be the perfect place to ask questions! Im looking into a brand new 2012 WRX sedan from our local dealer. I am going to be mainly commuting about 10-20 miles a day, about 55-60mph. My driving style will probably be to keep it under boost to conserve gas, but every once in a while having some fun. How is the reliability of these models overall? I take care of my cars well (maintenance, detailing, etc.), and will not be driving it terribly hard. Just wondering of other peoples experiences in terms of issues, daily drivers, gas conservation, etc. Thanks!

    95% of Subaru's sold in the last 10 years are still on the road. Subaru has placed in the top rankings for reliability for many years now.

    Take care of the car and it will take care of you.

    As far as MPGs most on here see averages of 24-27 MPGs but, most of us also don't care

    On the 2012's not really. They have really ironed any issues out with this generation.
