Good morning all. So this thursday I'm about to embark on my new car journey. I'm test driving the 2013 WRX hatch limited w/nav. I've test drive a few cars already (2013 Ford Fusion, 2013 Hyundai Sonata, 2013 Honda Accord) and would like some advice on how the WRX behaves. I know a lot about it from personal research, but I know these forums will be able to tell me what it's like to own and live with a WRX (long time fan, first time poster/member). I also just started a car blog with some friends and have written a few reviews on what I've driven to further get my thoughts down on paper. So with all that in mind, here are my questions:
1) I know Subaru's are STUPID reliable and great cars, but does that translate to their sports cars in the long term? I.e. is the WRX easy to live with?
2) Being a non-stick driver (I'm currently learning on a 2010 Mazda 3), is the WRX a good 1st car to have for a stick?
3) If you were to choose sport (WRX) or luxury (Hyundai Sonata 2.0T w/ Premium for example) which one would you choose and why?
Thanks for you help. Just trying to make the best, most informed decision as possible.
