Default can someone give me a ride in their wrx?

sounds kind of weird, but i've been contemplating a wrx for a loooong time and i was just wondering if anyone would be willing to give me a ride in their wrx..im in hayward next to southland mall. maybe someone could give me a fun run, show me the sweet spots on the wrx and whatnot. i know if i went to a dealer, i'd be so rushed and pressured by everyone. hopefully we can set this up and have it in a more relaxed environment. maybe i could attend one of the meets..who knows?

We sometimes get random people going to Albertson's come by to check stuff out. We are car people, we sit around and talk about cars. Other stuff too, but a lot of car talk. You coming by to check out our cars and talk about them would 100% fit in.

There's a lot of "oh you have this part? Let me hear/see/feel it."
Or
"would you mind taking me for a ride?" ... Happens all the time.

I've even had a guy come up to me and ask- "so would you like to take my (his) STI around the block and see how it drives?"



how could I say no?




Unexpected things sometimes happen at these meets, but its usually all good

awesome. i've been getting mixed feedback on these cars, so i figured it would be better if i asked questioned in a more educated environment. my friend test drove a new wrx and he complained about the car being really bumpy..a called bs on him because 1) he didnt know how to drive stick and 2) he ended up buying a fixed up mustang cobra...

blahblahblah. im rambling. i'll just have to see what its like when i get there

You should go to santa cruz subaru if you want a hassle free test drive. I went there, walked into the door and asked if I could test drive a wrx. They said no problem Charlie and I took the WRX on some nice windy roads, came back to the dealership where we talked numbers for 5 minutes, then I left. I didn't end up getting a WRX, but if I did I would have gone to santa cruz.

Cleofis, your friend must be a *****, stock wrx's have a nice smooth ride, especially when compared to the GC8 imprezas!

Use the search button and type in Steven's Creek. It will become very apparent within seconds why we all hate Steven's Creek Subaru.

Stevens Creek is quite possibly THE worst Subaru dealership. All their salespeople are hard sell and rude. I went for a test drive and for 1 minute they talk about the car, and the next 45 they try to "force" you into buying it. Simply put, they have all the characteristics of a stereotypical slimy car dealership.
And that is why they are shady as you've heard before
