Good morning, and hello to all.
I only have one experience owning a Subaru and it was a 2005 Legacy GT Limited automatic sedan. I test drove the stick and auto and opted for the automatic since at the time I had a long commute to work on very un-entertaining roads and was trading in a 6-speed Nissan versa which has absolutely no balls, so having the turbo power, but convenience of an automatic got the best of me. I had that car for about a year and a half, sold it and bought a Wrangler and a motorcycle and then opted for gas mpg over the fun of a Wrangler and got into my third Civic, and that's what I'm currently driving.
I'm getting the Subaru bug again and am contemplating selling the bike and Civic and getting into a used WRX. However I don't have bottomless pockets and want the best bang for the buck, joined here to learn what to look for, years to avoid, etc.
Hopefully I'll be able to mod it a little, whatever improves it's 0-60 time. Plus I'm a sucker for the sound of a WRX with aftermarket exhaust (my R1 kinda sounds similar at idle).
But anyway, so are there any concerns with the first year the WRX had 265? 09 I think?
