But our cars didn't fair as well, my 2011 WRX and my wife's 2009 OBS are probably totaled from salt water damage. They are both covered, so have to get some new cars and get moving back to work and all that. I am hoping to get a 2013 WRX but for the wife I'm looking at the impreza sport and the crosstrek, anyone have opinions on the two. Hoping to go for a test drive tomorrow.
Any helpful opinions would be appreciated.
Sooo I'll try to offer an actual opinion instead of focusing on post 2... Go for the '13 WRX of course, but I would definitely vote for the Crosstrek as a replacement for the '09 OBS. I really like the Crosstrek... Feels like a more capable CX-5.
