    I replaced my 02 WRX with an 04 GTO, and I still have my Firehawk. I miss the AWD and nimbleness of the WRX, but I love the torque and better fit and finish and more plush interior of the GTO. Gas mileage is about the same actually. I've been very happy with the GTO, but I still loved the WRX for what it was.

    I'd come back for a factory STi wagon, however...


    2007 VW GTI 6 spd. No times yet
    2000 Firehawk convertible 6spd- 12.52 @ 114.7 mph. 2.09 60'

    Sold: 2004 Mini Cooper S. 14.95 @ 93.8 mph.
    Sold: 2004 GTO 6 spd. 13.4 @ 104.5 mph
    Sold: 2002 WRX 5spd. 13.39 @100.7 mph. 1.81 60'

    I think it really has a lot to do with what happens for 08.

    I seriously doubt that i will ever purchase another subaru. SOA would rather chase down people using the name impreza in their website name than bother 1.) putting decent mechanical parts in their cars(rounded off 5mt anyone?) 2.) going after dealerships that have ****ed people over time and time again(Search for subaru of schaumberg). That along with the fact that the paper they print your warranty information on is worth more than your warranty doesn't fly with me.

    SOA cares about selling cars and that's it, once you drive off the lot you're pretty much on your own.

    Wow, some interesting replies and not what I expected when I got an email about this topic.

    I don't own, and haven't ever owned a Subaru so I'm not really one to say. I probably would have enjoyed it, but that time has about past. I just took a job for Nissan, so I have no doubt that will be where my next car comes from.

    I voted maybe. I want to get it paid off and enjoy not having a car payment for atleast a little while. It may be a few years til I buy my next car, but I am always jonesing for another (different) car and wondering what I would buy. Variety is the spice of life, so I doubt it would be another Suby but there's just no way to be sure now so thus the maybe.

    Hey Everybody,

    I traded in my 2004 WRX wagon for a Legacy 2.5 GT and I really love my new Leggy-girl.

    I may yet, sell my 1995 OB1 DB8 with 63,500 miles on the clock and purchase another Legacy 2.5 GT wagon for the little lady of the house.

    Or I may go for the Saab 9-2X Aero for a fraction of the money.

    As I hear it, their not selling very well. I know it's a POS and all, but you can't beat the prices their letting them go for.

    Peace
    TQ

    I'm old enought to have purchased the first GTO (64) new. Since then, I've had all manner of high performance cars - big block corvette, 327-350HP Chev II, BMW M6. Mits Eclipse GSX - and like a lot of things about the Subaru. I also think the interior quality is pathetic - SOA should take a look at the VW GTI (I had one of those too) and learn. The STi has more rattles and squeaks than almost any bucket of bolts I've ever ridden in. Having said that, it is also the most balanced high performance car I've ever owned. It is almost impossible to outdrive the car in reasonable circumstances. I'd like to see what is in the offing for 2008 and then decide.

    I voted yes. I love my WRX. I plan to keep it for quite a few years, although I may buy another more economical car down the road. Over the past year I have read about the cheap paint, cheap interior, transmission woes. I cannot really find a fualt in my WRX. The interior suits me just fine. Will upgrade to leather down the road. Stock stereo, meh, but what can you expect from the factory? Paint? Mine is still nice, no chips yet. Tranny is great, goes into gear everytime. Maybe my expectations were not as high as others here, but considering what the WRX costs and what you get, I don't see a better deal out there.

    As for SOA and bad experiences with dealerships, I could care less. If I take my car into the dealer for work (seldom) I tell them exactly what I want done, what I don't want done, and what my expectations are.

    I'm on my 2nd Impreza, and my family has owned a total of 3. I would probably own another as a "family" vehicle; the quality that goes into their Legacy's and other cars seems to be quite good. For my personal car, I think I'll probably move on to something that's more akin to an actual sportscar; a used 911 or similar. But that's a ways away.

    Put down a maybe. I too feel that the WRX is one of the most well rounded platforms built for a long time.

    While a Carrera 4S is on my "list"- it will probably be a while before it becomes a reality

    I'll be in this one for awhile UNLESS FHI decided to build another STi wagon (not likely) and also sell it in the US (not likely).

    Wow, that really surprises me, coming from an Evo owner... My buddy had his bone-stock motor blow and mitsu has been sitting on the car for over a month waiting for their official Evo inspector to come approve whether or not they should cover it under warranty... WTF?! Who the hell does that?! It's a long azz story, but I've heard of Mitsu being much worse with support...

    I voted maybe. I loved my 18g bugeye, and I would pick up an STi in a heartbeat, but right now I need something else with a turbo and 4wd as my next new car... it will just happen to have a 6 foot bed, and be able to tow about 9,000 lbs.

    I currently own a 05 Legacy GT Limited. With respect to the current Subaru line-up, it is the plateau in my opinion. There are really no other cars that excite me and would be viable for a daily driver from Subaru. With that said, I plan to keep the LGT for a good while. My wife and I plan to replace her RSX-S with a 350Z GT or G35 C. I am also planning on FJ Cruiser sometime in the near future (work and recreation vehicle). If Subaru were to place an H6 TT in the Tribeca or Legacy, we would definitely redirect our current purchase choices.

    Take it easy.
