Best new sports car under 24k ever!
May 7, 2019
From a budget standpoint of its one of the greatest automotive feats in the last 20 years. A reliable, cheap, beautiful, fear wheel drive sports car that ìs better than a Mazda Miata! Toyota clearly took aim at this car or the driving philosophy behind it. It's alot more comfortable than a Miata! More horsepower! Looks amazing even at a standstill! Plus with a few minor tweaks (header, intake and open flash tablet tune) you can iron out its flaws! Or you you can go hogwild crazy and slap a turbo or supercharger for insane amounts of power! Frankly, I would do rather do the former than the latter, just for longevity reasons (and to keep my warranty). Plus I love the trademark Subaru "rumble"! Aside from the power the infotainment system is laggy at times. Would recommend a slightly used specimen, under warranty and dealer certified no older than 2 years. Lastly there isn't ANY excuse to buy this in automatic (except health reasons), the clutch is like butter and Toyota/Subaru make almost perfect manual gearboxes. Subaru has had some issues with their automatics. So do yourself a favor avoid automatic transmissions for this particular model! If you're on the fence about it because you've got kids, buy this car and convince your significant other to keep the family car, once they're in the driver's seat of this "smart mans" Japanese Porsche they'll get it! My only 2 reasons for not buying this car would be if I could only have access to one car and lived in a snowy area I'd just get a Subaru Sti and if your over 6'2" you're going to be a bit cramped.
