    Should I get a new one?

    Thanks for the input. As far as my kid, she's not driving yet for about three or four more years. What I'm getting from the group is that the rust is probably going to cost me a lot of time and money. I did the timing belt, I did a clutch around 80,000 and it seems to run ok...except it does burn a little...so it may be ready for number two. Rear suspension is upcoming...other maintenance is all up to date. I thought these engines go for 200,000 miles or more...I know people with Outbacks and Foresters with 300,000 on the clock... Either way, one take-away from this conversation is to maybe drive it through the winter, sell it privately in the Spring, and maybe get a new WRX by next Summer... Any opinions on the Crosstrek with a six speed manual?
  2. I have a 2008 Legacy GT with only 128,000 on the clock. Runs well, needs some body work...cup holder broke, seats getting a bit tired looking, and a bit rusty where it was hit a few times. I want to fix up the car for my kid to enjoy in a few years, but I’m considering a WRX and/or a Crosstrek...with a stick of course. Should I keep the old one, or dump it for two new ones?
