Agreed. But look how much improved the Focus is compared to when they first came out.

That would be my only concern of the WRX. My cousin had one and loved it. He only traded it because he is a Jeep guy.

Your point? That's like saying you won't buy a 2012 focus because the 1993 Ford Escort you drove was shit. Come on now.

What he said, it's like these people I used to work with that wouldn't buy a Ford because their 79 Pinto was horrible.

Now I am not bashing the ST and promoting the WRX. I am just looking at from the eye of a consumer who would be looking at cars in this class.
I've seen them handling wise, mainly before 07 but stock wrxs suffer from heavy brake fade, and definitely could use better tires (if they are still on those RE-92's, again I'm not as familiar with them as I use to be).
