Thinking about cancelling my order for a 2009 Subaru WRX

can't believe I would ever consider this I was so hooked on the 2010 Camaro test drove one and loved everything about it..... but I happen to stroll into a Subaru dealership and test drive one of the new 2009 WRX's tonight. Obviously the styling doesn't live up to the 2010 Camaro but as a daily driver I liked the fact of having AWD for the winter and the performance isn't too shabby either with 0-60 clocking in at 4.8 and 1/4 at 13.5. It was a very comfortable drive and it basically can be two cars in one if you shift early you don't even notice it was a high performance vehicle and you get decent mileage but if you get on it pulls nice all the way to redline.

Unfortunately money is an issue for me right now and I wanted a SS but the insurance prices are insane here in MD even being 27 with a clean driving record. The 0% APR on the Subaru is looking so tempting to me right now I am going to go crazy making this decision.



Preparing for flaming don't be too harsh LOL

I had a 2003 WRX STi Japanese version and it was fast as a mofo, but it can't compare to that beautiful 2SS/RS. Chics will flock more to the camaro than a motorized shopping cart too

Get the CAMARO!

Driving the 2010 Camaro is hands down the most fun car I have driven. I find myself getting up earlier in the morning just so I can drive the car to work. I receive comments everywhere I go how cool it is. I am not sure you would say the same thing with a Subaru. The Camaro is an excellent car and well worth the price. Get the Camaro... you won't be sorry.

I hear you about it being fun to drive but the Subaru will be extra fun to drive on the twisty's too..... As far as the attention getter factor of the Camaro that will end soon when everyone and their brother has one it's slowly getting there lol

I am sorry but I just call it as I see it. Everytime I see one of them with that hideous spoiler on the back I expect someone to jump behind it and start pushing it around like a shopping cart

Buy the Camaro. Get a beater to drive in the winter.

In all honesty, when I bought my ss back in June, I swore to my wife that it was okay because it'd be my daily driver in place of my 06 saab. Well...Camaro showed up here a week ago...it's no longer the "daily driver"...and I'm trading down on my saab so I have something a little less pricey (both car payment, license, and insurance wise) to drive in bad weather here in Iowa.

Go with your gut. Get the Camaro. Save up for the 8 weeks it'll take to get it and buy something to drive in bad weather. You get the best of both worlds, and the better of the cars.

I rented the 2010 for the entire weekend on my trip to Ocean City, MD... NO ONE AT ALL had one on the roads yet and every single person in a car on the road in a store stared at the maro... It was nice... I loved the smooth ride of it on the highway and the peppyness it had for V6... I got addicted.... It looks AMAZING. Right now my situation is that I have the SS on order and I cannot afford it... I would have to re-order and get the V6 which will cost me exactly the same as the WRX if I get the 1LT gas mileage will be identical almost.

I think whats going to break me is the 0% APR on the WRX and the fact that the dealership I went to has the Pearl White color I want on their lot right now and I could take it home this friday before the 0% APR ends.
