Default '07 GT or '11 WRX?

so lately ive just been tossing around the idea of perhaps getting a new car. Mine is getting up there in miles, its automatic , and has a few nicks and dings on it now. plus being a daily driver the mpg is a concern. i can afford the gas but i can't afford much of anything else because of it. lol. i found a 2011 wrx on craigslist with 28k miles for $15.9k. im kinda of a subie fanboy next to mustangs and ive read up on them a little bit. apparently 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are pretty close on these two, not that i have ever been to the track or do 0-60 runs all the time, but get up and go is important. i also frequently have friends in my car so the four doors wouldnt be bad either. now basically what would you guys do? i think we all know the subie takes it in handling and the stang would probably take it in straight line speed. oh and the impreza is a stick . thanks guys!

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Those WRX's are cool. Generally the Subaru's have a rep for reliability and blah lbah, but I doubt that car will see an improvement in your fuel mileage, and if you can't afford much else because of the fuel economy then you should get a car that has much better fuel economy first and foremost even if its got half the power of your 07.

Wouldn't waste my money on a WRX.

I have a 2006 Mustang GT that's basically stock. Other than the 18" OEM wheels i added and the pypes offroad x pipe, with mobil 1 full synthetic and 91 octane i just literally spanked a 2013 subaru wrx hatchback on the freeway.

We started at a third gear pull I was at 70mph and we went all the way up to 135 and I was a good car and a half ahead of him. We both slowed down back to 75 and the look on his face was hilarious. Gave me a thumbs up and off I went.

Subaru's are cool but for the money you're spending i'd rather go out and put another 10k down and buy a 07-09 gt500 for $25-35,000

Is the WReX an STI? If not, I'd keep the Mustang. I don't ever have more than one passenger, and I'm not too keen on the pedestrian, secretary styling of the WReX, so the Mustang gets my vote. I do appreciate the technical specs, but I'm not that interested until they can package that drive train into the BRZ.

If the WReX is an STI, I might be inclined to make the trade as long as it didn't cost me anything... and I mean that. Not one dime. If you cant afford gas, you cant afford the trade. When my car was stock, I was getting 21-23mpg in mixed driving and better than 30 on the highway. Do you really think a WReX can do much better? Take your foot out of it once in a while

Keep in mind, the Mustang has a MUCH higher ceiling when it comes to mods and a few well planned suspension mods will make a Mustang competitive with the suby's awd and independent suspension.
