    Re: I got a new toy

    Nice Jeep! We've been in the process of getting a new car for my son to drive when he gets his license next month. Was a tough one as we wanted something fun, but also safe and we wanted to have a lot of the modern safety features. Thought about a Wrangler for a time, also a Grand Cherokee, tried a Chevy Blazer, then a Camry XSE and also an AWD Dodge Charger GT (as we currently have a Dodge Journey and a Charger ScatPack). Settled on this and picked it up this past tuesday. It's a Subaru WRX Limited.

    That's a big upgrade from my first car...a 1972 Chevy Nova with a 307 engine. Good choice though! They have a great safety record and the WRX has a great Fun Rating. We love our Subaru, though it's a bit more mundane Outback.

    I bought my wife a new outback in 2008, and she is still driving it. I have tried to get her to go get a new one but she doesn't want to. I think the 08 is a little slicker looking than the new ones. guess I should be happy she doesn't want a new one. she has gotten it up to 60,000 miles now. they are good cars.

    Love the WRX!
    The state or, to make matters more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. - H.L. Mencken

    No such thing as a bad Jeep!

    I beg to differ. Late 80's cherokee with the chevy 2.6L engine was hot garbage. that motor would overheat if you looked at it wrong and had no overheat tolerance. My dad killed 5 motors in the same jeep.

    TRVTH.

    However, I think we all try to ignore the automotive dark ages. There were very few automobiles worth remembering during that time...
