Check out some of the new Hyundais like the Accent or Eleantra. Compared to those, shutting the door on my Impreza feels like a vault door is clamping down.

^ We own a '12 Impreza Sport. The interior is great for price segment and the cloth seats are very comfortable. I also feel the door thud is very solid. Better than the old car we got rid of.

Have you ever closed a frame-less door on a pre-08 Impreza or WRX?
IMO, doors on new Subarus produde 1000% more thud than any of the older frame-less doors .
Personally, I don't care, I like my non-thud producing frame-less doors; the presence or absence of door thud has very little bearing on my vehicle purchasing decisions (maybe because I'm more of a motorcycle rider anyway).

I wouldn't be surprised. If you can't think or plan ahead for a car purchase maybe that just means you really don't know how to "prepare." Or just too lazy to.

Again, I find it hard to believe you can plan for a car getting totalled. Unless you do it yourself on purpose, of course.

Okay so in your case you just don't ever think about your car getting totaled and plan or think about what you would do if it was totaled. That's totally normal for most people who don't plan out what to do, don't care to, don't have to, don't want to, are too lazy to, etc.

Some people actually plan out how their days go if that's even harder to believe. I'm pretty sure middle schoolers use these things called planners to keep track of when homework is due and such. I hear it's an extraordinary and useful tool to plan out things. I used one when I was in middle school and it was very easy to use.

And how do you plan for having a car get totaled? You magically wait until the next model year comes out each time? You argued that ANYONE who purchased the last model year of a car didn't plan correctly. That's a false statement. You can have money put back, and have insurance and for whatever reason you keep an extra car at home just in case. That's the most you can plan for a car getting totaled. But what happens if your family hauler is the one that gets crunched? Do you make sure your extra vehicle sitting at home is a family hauler? Probably not. It's not about being lazy, it's about realizing that planning cannot foresee every single event.

Cute, you can use a planner. Do you have "car will be totaled" pencilled in on Wednesday?

BTW I was referring to the doors on the Forester, not the Impreza. I was saying that I'm satisfied with the Impreza's interior finish, but very disappointed with the current Forester's lack of quality on the interior and the door panels. The doors on every Subaru I've tested are perfectly fine except for the Forester.

Haha. Door thunk, or door thud is the oldest trick in the book for selling a car.

"Listen to that door shut, that means quality!"

Please, let me know where you see I "argued that ANYONE who purchased the last model year of a car didn't plan correctly." I've love to see my words or statements in context portray my opinion that "ANYONE who purchased the last model year of a car didn't plan correctly."

Or did you assume I meant that because you're taking it personal? Because it sounds a lot like you're falsifying what I said if anything is false.
