Hi my name’s John I’m new here and I’m looking for my new car. I’m 17 years old and male. I live in Chicagoland so I need a car that can withstand bad Chicago weather. I’m looking for a sedan, specifically a sports sedan or sporty sedan. I was looking at a Subaru Impreza and was pretty serious about it. I test drove one yesterday but I’m not sure if it’s the best car due to head gasket issues, and general maintenance. Is maintenance a lot for the car? Parts cost a lot? The car is reliable and safe correct? I want something safe, reliable and sporty looking. Other cars I was considering are Mazda 3, Ford Focus SE, BMW e46, e91. Mainly concerned about the Subaru, it seems cool but I am worried about if it’s not the best car. I have an “all or nothing” attitude and I want to make sure I will be happy with this car. Thoughts? Suggestions? I really need a car soon before school starts and can’t find one, nor do I have any idea where to start. Thanks.
Oh yeah the model Subaru I drove was 2009 year I am only looking at Subarus pre 2011.
