I feel for these guys, I just ditched my laughingstock ‘08 Avenger SXT(!) for a ‘16 WRX limited. I laugh more, sleep better at night, wake up excited to drive to work - It’s great. I get phenominal highway economy and a piece of soul from every dad behind the wheel of an Oddessy when I pick up the kid from school as a bonus.

When I was trying to pawn off the Avenger I let it out on test drives without any sort of verification, someone stealing it would make my life so much easier.
