A good mate of mine just traded his AU2 XR8 5sd for a WRX!!!!


He has just about had it from Ford Dealers treating him like $hit and %$#@!! his car everytime it went it to the local dealer.





a sad day indeed..................




So if anyone is after a mint AU2 XR8 5sd with leather,premium sound and only 30K .......one has just been traded at Regal Motors in Newcastle!!

Having had a Subaru, he didn't necessarily do himself a favour!

I agree, based on family experience Suburu's local service isn't always perfect either! Hope he enjoy's the super-high insurance premiums.

I wouldnt worry too much, with the cost of insurance, and the stats re stolen cars in that area, he should be on the market for a new car in several weeks!

XLR8, definitly not a good move changing from an XR8 to a WRX.
I can't justify buyin a $20k impreza on steriods for $40k.

Hmmm definitly a good guy for that XR8 5 speed for $30k. Anyone want to lend me $20k.

Not good at all.

The WRX isn't that bad but gee trading in his XR8 due to bad service? He should have gone to another dealer?? But then again I don't know his situation.
