Get rid of the truck.

You're on a Subaru board aren't you?

No seriously though, what's wrong with the truck? If it's going to cause you major problems in the long term, I say you dump it. Get off a sinking ship before ya know? Also, can you financially afford to dump the truck and pick up another new car? If you're able to, then I say do it. Do it!!

I tried to warn ya'! I tried to tell ya'! I tried and tried and tried! Next time try to listen to good ol' Uncle Markus.

Seriously though, your Victory is a nice ride (as far as trucks go), and you should be able to get a good dollar for it as there are always some young BARN's willing to buy a nice "hello officer" red truck (maybe that's why you bought it right ? ).

You could perhaps wait a few more months, save a nice down payment, and go for the whole WRX instead of an RS.

Whatever you decide, you're always welcome to join our meets as an enthusiast.

Cheers,

Sell your truck privately. Dealerships will rape you on the trade in value, as you probably know. I'd find out when you can take delivery of a new Suby, then the week before, advertise it everywhere, including Calgary. You should be able to sell it fairly easy here in Alberta. I had no problem w/ mine, 3days was all it took. Mine wasn't as nice as yours either. Good luck my friend.
