    Happy New 06 WRX Limited owner

    Hey there,
    Well I just bought a 2006 Subaru WRX limited last week and man I love this car. Sense this is an introduction I thought I’d include a little bit about why I chose a WRX and the cars I’ve owned over the years. This will be my third new car I’ve owned in the last 8 years. Didn’t really plan on having 3 cars in such a short time span but of the 3 the Subaru is defiantly a better fit for what I was looking for.

    The first car I had was a 98 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS, great little car but in the long run was underpowered at 140hp. We still have it but my brothers using it. I got an 02 Jeep Wrangler and had that for about four years. Even though I really liked the Jeep I realized I just wanted something faster that still could do some of the off roading I wanted to do. I never wanted to do anything too major, but being able to drive on undeveloped roads was defiantly something I wanted.

    I never really cared for the EVO’s very much, even though I did like my eclipse. I was considering Miata for a short time but decided it wasn’t the kind of car I really was looking for. I’ve heard a tone of great things about Subaru in the past and thought I’d find a dealer and check out what they had for my self. The closest dealership was 30 miles away so I made a trip one day after work and checked out what they had.

    After sitting in the WRX limited I realized that this was the interior I wanted. I liked the sunroof, the leather was trim was well done, the seats were very comfortable, the steering wheel was simple with no frills that would get in the way, and the general spacing was great. I didn’t even have to test drive the car to know I was going to like it. When I did test drive one of the cars they had on the lot I knew I found the car I wanted, only problem was they told straight out I couldn’t get this car in blue and no dealer Sothern California had a limited 06 (or even 07 according to the sales guy) in blue.

    A little bummed I went home and started my own search. It turned out he was right, there were no 06 or 07 in Sothern California in Subaru’s online database. But I did end up finding 3 dear ships in Northern California that had them, its just they all were 300 miles away. The first dear ship I called didn’t want to work with me because of the distance, the second one did. They offered me a better price for the WRX in the color I wanted than what the local dear ship could do for a black one and had it here in about a day. Despite the trouble to get the 06 in blue I’m really happy I did. It’s a joy to drive; it’s even a joy to look at each time I walk up to it. My cell-phones is being retorted so I can’t get the photos off the WRX right now but maybe sometime tomorrow I’ll post them.

    Oh Its just a WRX Limited, not the STi Limited. I thought about getting an STi but decided in the end I was better off with the WRX. 230 HP is very nice.

    Seems similar to my experience. I love black and most of the dealers up here didn't have one. I decided on the car before I even had a test drive. HA! It is truly an amazing car. For some reason, even though I have surpassed my break-in period recently, I still don't have the urge to push it. I love babying it...What dealership did you end up getting it from?

    I got the WRX from ValStrough Cypress Coast Augomotive group in Seaside CA. Overall I was very happy with their service and customer support. I did have to pay to have the car brought out here but it saved me time and the end price was still cheaper than another limited out here. Plus least they did clean it up and fill it up with 91 when they dropped it off.

    They didn't have to clean the car up and fill it up when they dropped it off, but it really did make an impression on me that they did go though the trouble to do so. Which is more than I can say for Santa Barbara Chrysler Jeep that sold me my 02 Wrangler with only a 1/4 tank of gas. It's the little things like that you remember.

    They are good people. That's where I bought my limited from as well. The only thing that sucks about buying actually from the dealer as opposed to over the phone is that they try to get you to buy everything. When I sent in for quotes in the surrounding areas, they beat them all out. They quoted me at $25,120 which was at least 1k less then others. This was also at the end of the month so you should expect something like this.
