Ah that’s cool. I know the EE20 is paired with a 6 speed manual which apparently confuses Americans because the 2017+ Impreza is STILL paired with a 5 speed manual. The Outback/Legacy dropped the 6 speed manual option in 2015, and in the 2018 Forester went CVT only as well. I believe the Crosstrek manual is the 6 Read more

Umm I don’t know. The XV Crosstrek and subsequent Crosstrek are still built in their Ota, Gunma plant. The Outback, Legacy and the Ascent are built in Indiana. While I will say the new Outback is well built, I’m unsure of the long term reliability. My ‘05 Outback has been ok, alot of the issue have cropped up because Read more

I took mine to Herb Gordon Subaru which is like 3 miles from where we presently live. I had looked at Stolhman’s which is on my way to work (I commute to Reston 4-5 days a week).

Also I feel at least around here in the DC Metro area, most of the people buying Subaru are older folk who have a bit more money and keep their cars til 200-300k or til the engine explodes. But I’ve seen the service advisors be super pushy about stuff needing to be done which makes me question and then the uninformed Read more

I mean I like Subaru but they definitely are not Toyota/Honda levels of reliability. My next car is probably going to be a Toyota once I pay off this ‘05 Outback. The 2019 Outback is for my fiance, as she really likes Subaru but she never took the car in (I deal with all the car shit in the household) so she doesn’t Read more

My 2014 Crosstrek went about 80k miles before major issues abound. Well the factory pads barely lasted me 25k miles. At 30k miles, I went to a Stoptech slotted Rotor kit and those lasted 60k miles before those wore down. Read more

I’ve had 2 Subarus for a couple of years now. There isn’t anymore wear and tear on tires. And I rotate my tires at Costco religiously so it’s not really more maintenance. And cause Subaru’s AWD is constantly on, the fuel economy does take a hit. But the Mazda AWD is on demand like most others so you won’t really hit a Read more

I don’t get why so many people think this is CP. A clean, non accident S2000 (alot of them HAVE accidents) is at least 14-15k. AT LEAST. The cheap 10-12k S2000's have like 5 owners and 2 accidents. So 18k is not totally insane. And this has low miles and doesn’t appear to have been in the rustbelt region.

Any running E36 M3 for under 8-9k is going to need 4-5k of replacement parts before it runs decently and reliably. I looked into an E36 M3 a few years back and the amount of brittle plastic bits is insane. Technically 4k isn’t a bad price for one, but be prepared to double what you need to spend unless you have Read more

Wait cash for clunkers didn’t rid the world of every Chevy Lumina? Christ on a stick. No matter how many stickers or how polished a Lumina is, it’s still a turd. CP.

If you don’t care about not being able to get a title and to drive it around when you finally finish restoring it: CP. If you don’t care and turn it into a drift missile, then NP.

Subaru Outback 3.6R fully loaded like 36k. Or if you wait til 2020, you can get the FA24F 260 hp boxer turbo on regular gas.

Holy crack rocks 13k for this heap of junk? Adunno what the seller smoked before this but dayum, CP.

Just cause something is from the 60's and has low mileage means it’s worth alot. Knock off a 0 you got a nice price. Otherwise CP.

I like how the title of the article now is the time to buy a sedan, and plastered is a picture of the new Jetta, one of the most boring, and ugly looking sedans on the market. I would honestly have the Lexus spindle grill that the Jetta grill. With only looks a mother could love.

Seriously this car is from 1991? It looks like it was built during the cold war...

Yeah it’ll just be the STI trim, with STI wheels, exhaust, bodywork and zero performance gains. Just like the Impreza “sport” or whatever the fuck that means.

Shocker, learned something new today. I guess I’ve only really followed Japanese motors which with a glut of them, they are uber cheap, uber cheap to modify. I guess I never thought about buying a turbo PT Cruiser just for the motor and basically scrapping the rest. Cause you can find running SRT 4's around here for Read more
