    I've read this whole thread, and I took note to the join date and post count of each member. Even if someone signed on for this one post to say they wouldnt be buying another subaru again, or someone came out of lurking to say "I've had my car since 01 and love it" it shows something that I think is unique to this brand. Just something to think about folks.

    I think you will also find that in general, people who bought their cars in 01 (Like I did) had better dealer experiences than more recent purchasers. I don't know if that's because in 01 people buying WRX's were older, more mature and knowledeable, or if dealer quality has gone down, but I think there's definately a correlation between the lowering of the age of the average Subaru buyer and their relative level of satisfaction with their purchase.

    I think that might be hit or miss. I had a horrible run in with one dealership, and a great run in with another. I would have to admit through that if I was a salesman I'd be a little frustrated with having to deal with the dumb kids all day that spend mom and dads money. But I do agree with your post.

    you know, almost 5 years later, every time I got to the dealer for service, and I run into the guy who sold me my car, he STILL remembers me, remembers my name, and remembers what car I bought, as well as any new mods I may have installed...seems like some guys really care. The head mechanic knows me too.

    I too have developed a close relationship w/ the dealership I bought my last two Suby's from. I know the mechanics on a first name basis- they've done me several favors in the past. I even had access to their shop/lifts all day on a Saturday when I traded in my sedan for my wagon- I was pulling off all kinds of parts/bits- that's kind of above and beyond IMO. The parts manager and I also are on a first name basis and he gives me great discounts on parts (ofcourse I buy lots of parts too )-always willing to look stufff up for me, get me part #'s etc.

    I agree w/ 302 there is something for sure unique about this brand .

    My dealer was super, I liked my car alot and I still don't have it anymore and probably won't buy another subaru. I don't really believe in brand loyalty. Marriage is commitment enough for me. When I drive, I want to play the field.

    So far, I've had a VW, Subaru, Acura, Jeep, VW, Subaru, Honda.

    When I get a pile together, it's on to Infinti/Lexus/BMW.

    with all the tuning and aggressive driving i've read about, we must take notice that subaru has listened to the tuners.

    wrx tr

    and imo, one reason they created that trim is because of all the warranty issue's people and subaru have experienced.

    eh, my .02

    One thing that I noticed, there is more then one person (myself included) that indicated that they liked their car, but would still not buy another.

    For me it is just time to move up. The Subaru fit a nitch when I was looking for a sub 25 K dollar car that offered a mix of performance and practicality.

    My dealer was similar to any car dealer I have dealt with...(I have purchased 13 cars in the past 15 years (I get bored easily))...the only bad dealers that I have run into I did not buy a car from.

    You guys are right...Subarus are unique and so is the enthusiast following.

    I'm in the process of buying my 2nd Subaru right now(06 WRB STI). I started out with an 03 WRX and loved everything about it. I initially wanted a STi but couldn't afford it at the time. What I love anout Subaru is that it's unique and stands out from the rest of the crowd. Not to mention performance and their's nothing like an AWD car.

    if the next-gen WRX is a boxer+hybrid, 2-door hatchback, full time AWD, and VW-like interior, there will be a 105% it will be my next car.

    otherwise i will look at the hot hatches on the market. the bugeye WRX i owned was *extremely* close, but no cigar. wonderful car though, and i will never say anything bad about WRX's except the usual nit picking on this board.

    if the next-gen WRX is a boxer-hybrid I'll be glad I still have my 02.

    you know, if i still owned a WRX, i would say the same thing, so i can't really dispute that argument.

    lately, i've been turning into a real gas mileage snob. going from 34mpg back down to 22mpg would really turn me off, especially when those spikes show up and kick you in the groin for a week. i'm too used to the savings. that's actually another reason i wouldn't mind a 200hp - ish FWD hatchback. so we'll see. i'm not buying another car until the driveshafts rust off the car i have now (about 2008)

    I think I will wait until companies start bringing their diesels over...(hopefully soon)

    the BMW 330 d M sport touring estate...231 hp 369 ftlbs of torque....and 43 mpg (could probably run it on Bio too).

    Once cars like that are here "Hybrids" will be pointless.

    Still don't see how folks like you were getting such bad mileage from the WRX. I think you guys need to wear lighter shoes.
