Buying a 2003 Impreza Automatic?
I'm thinking of buying a 2003 Impreza 2.5TS Automatic that is at a Subaru dealership here. But I know my Mom and Aunt who had 90's Subaru's w/ automatic transmissions had nothing but problems.
I'm thinking an automatic may be safer for me. I like that I could share the car on road trips with friends, and it may be more logical for a new driver who wants to live in a downtown area of Denver.
I want it to do well in the snow. I've heard manual means better control but Subaru's are AWD so maybe it doesn't matter.
I want it looked over by a reputable mechanic since they have some negative service reviews, but I don't know how to go about that with a massive dealership.
I'm also paying for it with savings. It has 118,883 miles, the one I bought before had 169,524 miles on it.
So any advice?
