I had a 2005 Toyota Corolla XRS. Not a well known car but had the 1.8 L4 Valve timed motor and 6 speed trans that was put in the Celica GTS. Anyways it was a quick little car that was a poor mans sleeper for the little I did to it. My buddy bought a 2005 WRX and we raced on the highway and he waxed my car so I being the child I am sold the car and bought a 2015 STI and did a little bit to it. Just to beat with my friend... https://i.gyazo.com/0ae2cad20c4d8580...90295d7a0d.jpg

My grandma died on my dads side. Never expected any money from her, I was estranged from the family after my dads death when I was 19 and how horrible they made the finals days of his life in the ICU.

Got a call from my one only decent aunt (he had 4 siblings) that they were selling her house and would be giving me a portion of the sale. I declined but they gave it to me anyways.

A month later, I drove out to so-cal and bought a wrapped subie through ďTREDĒ for 14.5k cash, with taxes and a warranty so around 17.5k overall in cash. Was nervous about buying a used subaru so I bought a warranty with Ally through TRED and thank god because 100 miles down the road check engine light came on and car would sputter off at a stop.

6 months later I finally took it in (mostly due to covid) and the engine was completely shot. They covered 6k in repairs/labor, I decided to drop another 12k on a built block, full bolt ons, e86, catch can, clutch, etc. picking the car up in a week or two after a few months in the shop.

Although the bad engine was stressful the warranty paid for itself and I look at it as a blessing in disguise.

My wife and I agreed that this new car would be less than or equal to $30k out the door. This is the most fun I could find, with that restriction.

I have always wanted a Subaru STi in World Rally Blue as long as I can remember. Every time I tried to obtain one something would happen and I would end up with another car. Prior to actually picking up my first STi I had about 10 cars. When I was 21 I walked into a Subaru dealership to buy a WRB wagon. They would not allow to test drive or even see the vehicle so I left and purchased a BMW 335i. A few years had pasted and went looking for another STi. Went back to the same dealership again to buy a WRB wagon, this time they allowed me to see the vehicles they had one in white and one in WRB each with different rims. I asked the manager if I could switch the rims from the white to the blue and of course that was a no go, because how each car was packaged. I left and went to work to think about the purchase without putting a deposit, which the dealership warned against but I didnít think it would sell in the two hours the dealership had remaining open till the next morning. Guess what, both sold that night so two slipped through my fingers. I ended up going down the street and buying a Cadillac CTS. Again a few years pass and the itch for Subaru never went away. I began to search again and found a WRB wagon but itís two hours away. I made contact with the dealership, they advised they still have the vehicle in their inventory. I drove the two hours to see it but when I arrived I asked to see the STi. They informed me yes they still have it but itís sold. They tried talking me into a base Impreza was unamused. Now between that last attempt and when I finally ended up with one I owned a Volkswagen CC and a Ford Raptor. At the time of owning the Raptor gas prices sky rocked and I was paying $150 a week to get to work. So yet again I started to look for a STi. This time I wanted either white or WRB in wagon or sedan. I located a dealership that had about 10 used STis. I made contact with the dealership asked what colors they had and was informed white, gray, dark blue and silver. I told them I wanted the white one and would be there in less than an hour and what my trade in was and where I wanted to be number wise. Once I arrived I was upset to not see it sitting out front and went to find a sales associate. After talking yet again about my trade and how much I wanted which was another hassle the salesmanís was off to pull the white STi sedan around. After about an hour and the salesmanís was no where to be found I ask for a manager. To which I was informed the white one was just sold and in detail. I was furious but the sales associate was attempting to locate another white one in a reasonable distance, which he couldnít do. He finally took me to the roof top parking lot where they had every STi jam packed. I looked around and nothing grabbed my eye so I told them thank you but no thank you. As I was walking to my truck the salesman came pulling around in a bright orange STi. I feel in love, they allowed me to drive it for about 30 minutes. I filled out the paperwork and they tried to get me to come back to finish everything up which I of course refused. After a few more hours I left with my first Subaru STi the black and orange edition 1 out of 100. Since then I owned a few other cars but now currently own a 2018 DGM STi with no plans in trading it.

Wrx 17 was the first Subaru I ever bought on my own! I loved it and Iím happy with it

Randomly got the itch after watching some old WRC stuff. Jumped on the first sub $2000 2.5RS I came across (like 8 years ago), and it's been a pain in the ass ever since!

edit: just bought a 2000 obs with 86k miles for my daily because i'm a glutton for punishment.

My first car was a 08 civic coupe. I've had it for a couple months and then crashed it. I decided to get a subaru for my next car. I was a huge fan of the rumble noise that the boxer engines can produce. At first I was really only looking for a Wrx, but many of em online was very expensive or not worth the price. After many 3 weeks of intense searching, I found it. A super clean, red, 05 legacy gt. It was love at first sight. Loved the hood scoop all the way to its nice leather seats. As inspecting the car I noticed many issues but I decided to buy it anyway, and it worth it, it was way better den my slow ass civic.

Cool

I got my first one when I found on kijiji (Canadian craigslist) a 04 Outback in the classic green/brown with a blown headgasket. I messaged the guy immediately but he never got back to me. It was listed for $400 and I knew I could fix the headgaskets despite never having touched a Subaru before (grew up on a farm, mechanically inclined, willing to learn). When I didn't get a response from the guy I started cruising around the area code listed for the car and I eventually found it and left my name and number on a piece of cardboard. Later that night I got a call and it was the owner setting up a time for me to go view the car. Test drive went well, car overheated as expected, but I swapped the headgaskets in the engine bay and boom, had a working car. Got the heads planed for $216 (canadian) and loved that thing until I had to get rid of it.

My story starts a long time ago in a far away galaxy................wait wut?

1st and only car show my wife ever attended 2003 NAIS in Detroit when the 2004 USDM STi was introduced and she gave me the go ahead to buy. The Monday after the show I went and placed a deposit on an order or so I thought. Fast forward to April 2003 and I see people are getting deliveries, have order numbers etc. I don't have $hit and the deposit check still has not cleared. So early May I visit the dealer and ask what is going on, blank stare. I hear through the grapevine that this dealer will lose their Subaru franchise. So I ask for my down payment to be returned. The knucklehead salesman goes to his desk drawer and pulls out my check. WTH? I go to work the next day and spend hours checking Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio dealer inventory. After my third call I find that Ganley Subaru outside Cleveland has a 2004 STI unsold in inventory. Amex down payment and the rest is history.

Here is Lucille, my one and only Subaru (I did buy and flip an 92X a few years ago).

Almost bought a nice 98 2.5 Rs Manual back in 2001. Ended up with a Sentra because it was a few thousand cheaper. A couple of years later, I was at Nissan getting a oil change and drove out with a lightly used 03 350z. Amazing car and I drove it a few years but was drawn to the all weather AWD and power gains of the STi and traded for my first new STi... an 07 in UGM. Drove that pro tuned for 4 years and 80k miles with no issues and traded for a new 11 STi which ended up being FBO flexfuel making almost 400wtq. Just sold it after 10 years and 80k miles and first time Iíve been without an STi in almost 15 years.

Iím looking at 2020s and 2021s as well as some other cars. GT350, M2, M4 but that AWD turbo manual keeps calling me.

Back in late 2002 I decided I needed to buy my first new car and wanted a performance compact sedan. Started looking and the Neon ACR and quickly found the WRX. While I was deciding if I wanted to spend that much more on the Subaru the SRT-4 came out and was quicker than both of them. That made the choice more difficult. Then the EVO was introduced into the USDM with AWD and 271hp. Choices, choices. Shortly thereafter Subaru offered the Impreza WRX STi. I bought one of the first May 31, 2003.

Back in 2011, I had just made the terrible mistake of buying a BMW 325i which as a somewhat unknowledgeable college student seemed pretty sweet, but I learned pretty quick that the only thing this car did well was gas mileage.

I went to college in a small town in the mountains of southwest Virginia and there wasn't a whole lot to do in my spare time. So when I got bored I hopped in my car and took it to the twistys on the backroads.

Right around this time, my buddy who lived back home in the DC area had just bought an 06 STI. I was constantly bragging to him about how much fun the roads I was living around were to drive aggressively on and kept telling him he needed to come out for a weekend and drive them in his new car. Finally, around Christmas time that year, he got tired of me bragging about the roads and came out for a week's stay with me.

On the first day he was there he tossed me the keys to his STI and said "let's see these roads I've been hearing so much about". I was somewhat awestruck that he would so readily let me take the driver's seat, but wasn't about to ask questions. So we hopped in and I drove us a little bit out of town where I began to absolutely WOMP on this thing on the backroads. He quietly sat in the passenger with a smile on his face and didn't really say much, aside from encouraging me to get it. I think at this time he was actually impressed with what the car was capable of doing and impressed that I wasn't scared to push it to the limits. We spent about 3 hours tearing up every road I knew was fun around the area.

It was around this time I knew I had made a terrible mistake by buying a BMW and knew that I needed to get a Subaru.

Now I have never had a lot of money so I knew there was no chance I was gonna end up in an STI, but I could probably swing getting a WRX after selling the BMW. So I began an exhaustive search to find a WRX. I test drove at least 5 of them and was pretty let down, while the WRX was a fun car to drive it was never going to achieve the feeling I got that day driving my buddies STI.

Then I found the craigslist post that changed the course of my entire life (in terms of cars). Someone was selling a 02 WRX which they had swapped nearly everything in the engine bay over from and 07 STI except he had retained the WRX's heads. It wasn't a looker as the guy had made the mistake of taking an electric buffer to the car at some point and unwittingly removed 70% of the clear coat. On top of that, the car was coming from Maryland and was in the beginning stages of some pretty serious cancer on the driver's side rear wheel well. However, when I got in to take it for a test drive I had barely gotten up the block before I knew I had to buy this car.

The guy knew he was gonna have to take a hit because of the rust and clearcoat issues so when I offered him 5 grand he said that would. Two days later I returned with cash in hand and drove my new WRX back home.

I dont need to tell you guys how much I just absolutely loved this car on the backroads, but I will say that at no point was I easy on this thing I drove it like I stole it every time I got behind the wheel. I actually even competed in two rallycross events with the thing.

It still amazes me to this day that the car lasted as long as it did the way I drove it. The only real issue that I came across was that after about a year of owning the car the transmission gave out on me. In a very non-exciting way of course. I went to back out of a parking spot at my campus thing reversed just fine then first gear would no longer make the car move. I managed to baby it in second gear and higher all the way back to my parent's house in the DC area where I left it parked for a few months while I had a dogbox from PPG built. To date that gearbox was one of the coolest decisions I've ever made.

Anyway, the car ended up lasting me another 6 years, I loved it, maintained it, but mostly beat the heck out of it. I had moved to Colorado and in 2018 was returning from a snowboarding trip in the mountains when sadly old rodknock Rodney came calling. Somehow the oil pan gasket had just let go while I was driving home and this led to a pretty bad situation. I ended up pulling over pretty quick and got it towed home (not a cheap tow).

The car is still in my possession. I have stored it in my garage, my friend's yard and finally it got put where it is now in a storage unit. Someday when I have the time and money im gonna rebuild that motor and get it and the dogbox swapped into a new chassis.

Since then I have never bought another make of car. I've owned a 99 forester L (was taken from me by a guy who turned out to be in the early stages of Alzheimer's when he ran a red light and t-boned me), a 2008 forester XT sports (still got it and love it dearly), and a 2007 Legacy GT (still own it, and probably gonna be selling it soon to pursue my dreams of having my WRX back)

that's the end of my gush. I want to thank this forum for existing its helped me through a lot and in learning from people on here and other forums have actually become a pretty confident mechanic (of my own cars).

'91 Subaru Loyale. I was living in Troy NY at the time, with my gf/wife (now ex-wife). I forget what our relationship status was at the time. Bought it off a friend of hers for $800 or so. It was a rust bucket, but it had that pushbutton 4WD that was great for Troy. It made a Subaru fan out of her, too... storm dropped 6" of snow in one go, and in typical Troy fashion, only the center of the street was plowed. I put it in 4WD then parked on the side of the street, and apologized to her as she'd need step out into the snow. Her jaw dropped, and asked how we just got through six inches of snow... I pointed to the pushbutton for the 4WD.

I've gone through a few Subarus since then... a '98 Outback, then a '06 Baja. She's been through more models than I have, making plenty of horrible financial decisions along the way, but finally settled on a Forester that she's fallen in love with.

Me, I had to trade the Baja in when the rust started eating it up, and I needed something bigger to haul a sailboat with. Picked up an auto 2nd gen Tacoma. As useful as the truck is, I've been sorely missing a stick shift Subaru. One divorce later, and I'm down to having one four-wheeled vehicle in the household. My motorcycle doesn't quite cut it in Upstate NY winters. So I took a drive over to NH to look at a winter beater ('06 Impreza wagon)... was a good excuse to get out of the house, mostly, but it was in better condition than I expected. Put a deposit down, and I'll be hauling it back on Saturday. I can't wait to get it back here and start wrenching on it, without having the pressure of it needing to be fixed *now* for daily driver purposes.

I did a 84 mile round trip commute for work(my choice) so was going thru cars...The old saying don't buy a new car after complete redesign holds true for the 2013 Ford Fusion I got....Loved the looks but after two transmission rebuilds I was done...Wife is a big Toyota Camry fan so I tried a 2014 Camry....From day one the automatic made a high pitch sound..Started out at 60mph and above...Had the factory rep look at it at first oil change, nothing they could do...Fast forward to 2016 and 46k miles later now the sound is 40mph and above...Had it serviced and factory rep looked at it and said Toyota can't do anything because it(transmission) was functioning properly...I told him there something I could do...It was a Friday, that night went home and looked at Subarus and next day bought a 2016 Legacy...Here we are now, retired and no more commute so decided to look at WRX's with CVTs...Local dealer had a used 18 with 34k on it for 27K...Let me test drive it and I loved it but after looking more closely at the car all four wheels had curb rash...New tires but the curb rash bugged me...Asked the wife what she thought and she said just go buy a new one for a few thousands more...So have one on order now...

I bought a brand new Tacoma TRD Pro while I was in college and the payments were to much to handle (dumb kid). I sold it and ended up with an 04 red WRX in 2012 and fell in love immediately. After joining the Air Force and enjoying that lucrative E-3 pay I went to look at WRX's for fun. They decided to see what they would offer me for my 04 and that is when I learned it had a salvage title that I somehow never knew about. I went ahead and traded it for a new 14' WRX and I have had that ever since.

Funnily enough I was actually looking into picking up an Evo 3 or Evo 4, and was just looking around and observing the market for over a year to try to find a fairly priced Evo that didn't need essentially a full rebuild from the ground up. Well of course I stumble across a lot of posts for Subarus in the area but no Evos and about a year into looking I stumbled across a WRB 2006 WRX Sedan, no rust on the rear quarters, no CEL, near mint interior, no mods besides an STI cat back, and it was listed for a bit under market. Only issue was the car was 4 hours away from me, so I shot the owner a message asking if I could swing by and see it and sure enough the next morning I woke up before the sun could rise, showed up to the owner's apartment, checked the car out, everything seemed to be in order. apparently he was selling it for cheap since it was his Girlfriend's and he just wanted to use it to get her more into the car scene, but she didnt care and just wanted her old car back. Well by the end of the day I was the new owner of 2006 WRX and I have been loving the car ever since.

About 7 years ago we were driving Hondas, my wife was looking at cars with an eye towards something with a back up camera and all wheel drive. At an art show where she teaches the local Subaru dealer brought some cars for show as they were a sponsor, she admired a Crosstrek there but. I did not think much about it. Next day she calls me at work and tells me she just traded for a Crosstrek. Move on about a year and she and my son were stranded in Toronto for one of those stupid summer storms that really is not that big of a deal. So I had to drive from Pittsburgh to Toronto to get them. On the way I drove through an absolutely wicked down poor, just about zero visibility, lots of water on the interstate. I was really impressed with how well the car handled the conditions, other cars were in the ditch, the Subaru when I slowed a bit was just unbelievably stable so long as I stayed below the threashold where it would hydroplane. It has felt to me with Subarus that as long as you respect the tires for the conditions that they feel more stable in bad weather. So eventually I bought a 2015 Impreza. I liked the Impreza, it had a descent steering feel compared to my Honda Insight, I liked the driving dynamic better than my prior Civic EX or Insight. All were equally slow. I Drove it for 5 years and got a WRX. A new Impreza just did not do it for me, the old one was fine, there was nothing in the new that really cried out I have to have that other than I hated the stock head unit in my Impreza. I love cars though, have not had a performance car for about 20 years but still feel I need a Sedan I can drive in any weather, so for me the answer was a WRX. I went used though as I found a nice 2013 that caught my eye. The factory radio from 2013 is far better than the piece of junk they put in the 2015. I always swore the head unit was designed by the i don:t care department.

Back in 2018, I went to Wal-Mart for a routine oil change on my 2008 Scion TC. They failed to secure the oil filter correctly causing it to pop off and run the engine out of oil on my way home thus leading to a seized motor.

Wal-Mart actually admitted that it was their fault and gave me a nice check to cover the engine replacement, but instead of putting in a $4K engine into a car that I got for $2.5k, I used it as a down payment for a 2014 WRX Hatch.

Although I knew nothing about Subaru's then; the turbocharged, All-Wheel Drive, 4-Door Hatch is what sold me on buying a WRX. I'm just thankful for this forum and all the people that have contributed to sharing all the experiences they've had because it's been very helpful in guiding me in the right direction with modifying my car

Back in 2001 or 2002 (I forget) I went to the store to buy a new bugeye in MT. That was my first Subaru besides owning many different cars.
