Question Looking for an opinion

So as the title says I would like to hear what thoughts anyone would have.
I have a 02 impreza wagon and she just rolled over 300,000km I love her and she has been a great DD here up around whistler.

The car is going to need some work at this point but over all its not too bad.
(needs axleback, wiper motors, plugs and wires, maybe timing belt, hope not the head gasket and will need a clutch soon) bit of body issues but nothing too bad.

The question is do I sink a bunch of cash on her and make her as good as I can or trade her in and get a 2013 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Touring Package for like $19,000 (not including trades and haggling) with 65,000km?

My gut tells me i should go for the new one but my heart says the new one is not going to be as fun to drive and not as pretty (sry I like the bugeye )

oh well any thoughts?
thanks

Rebuild her.
The newer stuff seems boring to drive compared to the older cars

You won't find a wagon like your '02 anymore. It's just not the same, and the new ones are like regular hatch cars.

That being said, for peace of mind, the new one.

Not yet but wolfe subaru is having some kind of dealer sale and they want me to test drive some and trade in mine. last one i took out was the crosstrek and was underwhelmed would not mind an older Forrester before they made them all huge and stupid or impreza sport perhaps...

any way this is the one i was thinking about http://www.wolfe.subarudealer.ca/Web...edCarID=752346

check how much they are willing to give you for the wagon, im sure they will low ball you on the trade in.. buy the new car and keep the old one so you can make it a little project or something, this will only work if you dedicated space for it =\

Why not just pick up another wrx wagon off cl. 02 will be pretty cheap and have most likely less mileage. And bugeye is still the nicest imo
