Default Car is cursed or am i?!

I have a wrx which I got last year, in that year it blew 4 turbos, hit a deer, blew an engine, didn't have it for like 5 months, got it back with a new built engine, every week for 8 weeks after the car has some stupid code or it blew the turbo oil feed line constantly, finally fixed the mechanical issues, got one good drive and a week later some ******* ran me off the road into a guard railed and screwed up my whole passenger dude and popped a tire and broke a rim, guy drove off, got no plate number, being blamed on insurance and paying a 1k defuctable.

Should I just get rid of this car? My last car lasted 4 years without fail until it got totaled, I've had 3 motorcycles which never had a mechanical issue or fell off or crashed.

I can't decide if this car is bad luck or if I am.

This thread is horrible. And how does it keep blowing the oil feed line? It's a hard line that threaded and bolted in.

Someone is putting your car together wrong. Ppl who constantly have bad things happen blame it on "luck" but it's their fault because they continue to either ignore something or make bad decisions.

Also stop buying the $50 used turbos and having your grandmother install them.

The blown engine and blown turbos have absolutely nothing to do with the driver.

Nothing.

Redline is just a suggestion. You should actually be shifting about 500 or so past it for maximum efficiency.

Sounds like a Subaru to me.

More specifically, it sounds like my beater OBS which apparently hates me.

Lol let my girlfriend drive it and collect the insurance payout on it. 7 totaled cars in the past 8 years, all not her fault due to other idiot drivers.
