I have a 2011 Impreza and I'm thinking of selling it and getting a 04/05/06 TL. I should have a couple grand left over to work on it (suspension, exhaust, wheels, some other engine work). They seem reliable from what I've heard - they're basically Hondas - so I can't see any potential negatives apart from the high mileage they tend to have. Do any of you own TLs and what are your experiences with them? Thanks for the insight!
^^^ I'm not planning on ricing it out. Probably paint it black, reasonable exhaust... But anyway I'm kind of looking for opinions on how they do in the winter, reliability, how they hold up with 100k + miles etc.
I drive a TL from 2001... no mods or anything, it's pretty sweet though. My family used to go on ski trips with that car before we got an suv and it's roomy as hell with tons of trunk space. I don't think it's really broken down on us in all the years we've owned it.
Maybe if the cars where both new, but that's 10 years rust, decay, bad owners, high milege and children can ruin a car. I would definitely sell the Subaru and spend the same amount of money on a newer car. Also don't buy a Honda.
I'm taking this Subaru Outback to the moon, motherfucker

your logic here is sooooo flawed. you are going to sell an newer car to buy an older car with higher mileage that is more expensive to fix just so you can put mods on it? C'mon bro use your and dont be a dumbass. keep the impreza
