I'm needing a new motor, and am looking to spend 7k ish. Either a newer model with higher milage or perhaps something a little older (seen a 54 plate with 30k on the clock for under 5k). Won't be using it for daily commute, mainly lowish milage on A and B roads. looking at the WRX version, potentially an estate.
From what I know:
Advantages - quick, great handling, 4x4
Disadvantages - criplingly expensive insurance and road tax and rather thirsty.
Anyones thoughts would be welcome, especially around reliability and what else to look out for.
And what else out there is similar for equivilant cash?
