Default New to Subaru...

Hello, and good morning!

I'm waiting on my first Subaru to get to me! She is on a truck, on her way to me RIGHT NOW!! I can hardly wait!!

I was driving a Nissan Frontier, but it got totaled a couple weeks ago by someone that decided they didn't want to slow down for traffic, like everyone else around us.

I wasn't quite sure what to buy at first. I looked at Infinity G35's, all kinds of BMW's, Hondas, Acuras.... I even looked at another Frontier. However, a good friend of mine asked me if I'd ever driven a Subaru. I had, but it was years ago, so I decided to go drive a couple. I didn't even go for a ride in a turbo, because I knew I'd love it and not be able to afford it.

I almost bought a brand new '10 2.5i, but since it wasn't the exact right car for me, I decided to let someone else bite the depreciation and buy used. It took some research, and ultimately had to go with Carmax to get the right Sub for me (right now) shipped from up north. She's a Black Onyx '06 2.5i.

I'm extremely excited, and can hardly wait to become a full-on enthusiast!!

When I was driving my truck, I joined a Frontier owners club online. I think it was one of the best things I could have done as a vehicle owner. I look forward to this experience being as rewarding, or more so, as that one was!

Yep. That's first on the list. Suspension, body stiffening, etc.

I'm all about getting help, too!! Advice and otherwise!
