Hello, humans of the Internet, and also racist Microsoft Twitter bots, and welcome to today’s version of Letters to Doug. This is an extra special edition because you are reading this on Friday, even though I am writing it on Thursday. This is due to time travel.
There’s one caveat—no Subaru WRX. Why? Because we already know that the WRX is the car of choice for anyone looking for a fun and affordable car that can also fit a family.
That you have to give up on a fun car when you have a family is a lie.
The Subaru WRX is a precision rally car in street car guise. What do you need to know before you buy a Subaru WRX? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you in our Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Sometimes it can be tempting to go for the larger or more powerful power-plants car manufacturers offer, but why do that when you have these ten great motors?
Here's the thing about life in 2015: we have cameras following us everywhere. This means maybe you should think twice before throwing shit at other drivers on the highway and brake-checking them in your sweet Subaru WRX hatchback.
The Subaru WRX is a fantastic hoon machine, but it must be kept in the right hands. One brand new owner says he took his car into the dealer for check-engine light and an easy repair only to have someone there "borrow" the car to take it to class and then wreck it.
