I currently own a 1999 Toyota Corolla (LE) as my everyday get around car. It has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. I am now ready to hand it over to my son and was in the market for a replacement vehicle. I have asked high and low about what used car to choose. I am tired of the Corolla's and Honda's and wanted something that was just as reliable but had some style and pick me up. I have been told that the car I am looking for is The Subaru WRX (not the STI). These are the factors that are important to me:
1) Reliability (won't break down on the road or need constant mechanical / electrical work)
2) Good gas mileage
3) Automatic Transmission and 4 cylinder
4) Get me out of the snow without an issue
5) Have some speed
6) Has some style (i.e. BMW, Audi, Benz)
Now having said that, I am going to test drive a 2005 4-door model tonight with 110,000 miles. The price is right but I was wondering, does this car get good City gas mileage? I currently get about 25 miles to the gallon with the Toyota and I like that. Will I even get near that?
