Honestly, I don’t expect any solid feedback from this, but fuggit. Gotta keep this forum alive somehow, right?

I’m drinking the Koolaid guys. I drive a lot, and I need something newer/reliable and I really want to keep myself at 1 car that can do it all. Do I get out of this before it completely depreciates, or at this point just run it into the ground. I have developed quite a bond with it, and take rather good care of it by staying ahead of maintenance, but i just don’t know if the juice is worth the squeeze on it anymore.
For my next car I want AWD, 4 doors, MT, limited depreciation and max fun factor. I like some tech but the focus for me really is reliability and a fun ride. I keep eyeing new WRX’s and preowned STI’s/Gof R’s. $25-30k max on the next car.
Talk to me.
