im looking to purchase my first WRX here hopefully within the next 90 days.
However im still very hesitant because im not sure if i will be happy with one.
I have never driven an all wheel drive vehicle FULL TIME. I live in northern virginia, right outside DC, and im not sure teh vehicles abilites in the rain/snow. I have talked to a few people who own them in my area, and they talk them up like they are the greatest, but one of my best friends OWNED one, and he got rid of it within 2 years saying he hated it in the rain and snow, saying the whole car would slide around at a take off. (something similar to a mustangs back end sliding at a take off, but this was the whole car sliding sideways).
I really REALLY love the car, and love the idea of getting one, however im also throwing around the idea of an 07 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (not the 4 door)
Part of me wants the jeep due to 4x4 features and removable top and doors are always an awesome touch.
However, i feel i would rather buy a beater jeep and fix it and have a nice car such as the WRX as my daily driver.
So if anyone would be willing to take a few minutes and share some experience they have had with their WRX i would greatly appreciate it and help me possibly decide on picking up with WRX and avoid the Fairfax County Police Officers.
I havent had a ticket for speeding in 4 years and im worried ill want to race again. (Had a 2000 Mustang and got 3 tickets in 6 months, not looking to re-live those days)
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to respond even if its a few sentences regarding their awesome driving experiences.
