    Default wanting to buy my first subaru

    i currently own an 88 5.0 mustang. but theres just something about a subaru and ive always wanted a wrx. my budget is around $7k. obviously mustangs are pretty cheap and easy to work on and you get alot of bang for your buck as far as mods go. im trying to figure out if subarus compare in that catagory. are they expensive to maintain? are they hard to work on?

    Subaru is a good vehicle, but sometimes repair costs too much(((

    500 for a 2.2? what year? I purchased mine for 3k, its great, had it a school year, its quick, ill tell you what i think on maintaining as soon as i change my front driver CV shaft. Its just about as expensive as any car, the dealer made us a free key, which is nice, it stands the revs fine. I really do like it, handles great, and btw, it'll beat mustangs! stock ones, but its stock.

Those motors are bullet proof and can easily go over 300k before any work is done. Glad you are enjoying it.
    thanks man, its at 167k right now, doing the axle tomorrow, any pointers you might give me?
