January 1st 2018 I lost my REX to a idiot drunk driver in a head on collision. Lucky to be alive. WRX probably the safest damn car I’ve ever owned because I could have been in worse condition. Have some bruising and back pain now but I know it could have been worse. It was a head on collision going 50 on a 2 lane road. Car is totaled for sure just waiting on the insurance.

So I don't mean this in any 'unfeeling' way. I could just be numnut but I cannot tell from your words if you mean you lost the car, or another person in the car with you.

Regards

Wow, good point, I assumed that a human being was killed by his words, but now not sure.

Sorry about that everyone, I should have been more clear. No one was lost just the car. I edited it. Sorry about the confusion!

Man, that is a bad collision! You are lucky to be here and unhurt.

Kudoes to the safety design of the Subaru. You are making me a believer for sure.

I have not had a bad collision but avoided a serious mishap d/t the superior handling of the 2012 WRX--a truck forced me off I-80 at 80 MPH and I was able to keep control and drive down into the median without any damage whatsoever, then could climb the snowy/icy hill with the AWD.

I don't know how you felt, but the phrase "it happened so fast" is real--like in slo-mo.

It's only stuff, and it can be replaced. Believe me, a total loss on your car is the best way to go insurance-wise. You can start shopping for Rex 2 right away...

Hahahaha!

Sorry about your car and glad you're OK. Do you plan on purchasing another one?

Modern vehicle safety standards are incredible. I've seen so many accidents where the car looks like a piece of rubble and the driver is walking around just fine. Did this happen late on New Years Eve?

Thank you! At the moment I’m not sure what I plan on buying. Most likely though it will be a WRX.

Yeah it definitely took a blow and saved me, Subaru makes probably one of the safest vehicles. This actually happen New Year’s Day at about 10pm.

You are absolutely correct, my back is definitely feeling it now. Made an appointment Monday to get my back looked at.
