      Any specific reason ? 2.0 Turbos are one of Subaru's best , most reliable motors , available 02-05. Nearly everything is lego-like plug n play and used parts are plentifull should something go wrong.

      Which IMO is why its successful. Everybody wants a car with supercar performance, nobody wants to daily drive one long term. STI is a great compromise of "holy crap fast" and "I can commute 40 miles...

      ^^ Yup, which is why I get them to write it on the work order, if its not written on the work order you have no recourse. I had just dropped $300 getting my car detailed days before , told them NOT...

      I get them to write on the service ticket " DO NOT WASH". Its especially bad in the winter that they use one bucket to wash and soap up the cars, might as well be a bucket full of gravel. When you...

      Not sure if serious. But take video for good measure.

      I love me Team Dynamics wheels, very big in the Subaru (not stance) crowd. They're a bit on the heavy side but built solid.

      Ah, then you'll be fine for tires. That's what I like about track days, I can stuff as wide rubber as I want. Going from AWD 4 cycl turbo to RWD V8 was a learning experience. You can't mash the...

      You'll be fine towing pretty much whatever fits in the trailer with the Forester. I picked up a load of topsoil and...

      Does it come with 800lbs of meat in the bed ? I love their batteries, low cost and they last for years even in our winter conditions.

      Its also why I think you'll see (in the next 3-5 years) the price of a used hybrid will plummet like a rock once warranty is done. Once word gets out that a replacement battery back out of warranty...
