Hi all, I'm not a WRX owner, but soon to be one hopefully. I currently drive a 2002 Maxima which is bone stock to get me by until February 2013 when my driving privileges get fully restored. In the last couple years, Subaru's have really grown on me, I've seen more and more around and I just love everything about them. I would love to one day be an owner of a WRX but I do have a heavy foot often times . I was wondering how much abuse can these cars really take? How are the trannys in the 02-06 cars? (The year range I plan on purchasing) How is engine reliability for most of you? (Assuming you have kept up with regular maintenance). What are some bigger jobs that need to be done along the way as the miles go up? (I plan on buying used so bigger scheduled maintenance jobs will obviously be required). I'm sure I have a lot to learn, but please, enlighten me ClubWRX.
