The wrx is pretty cheap to maintain, i dont know specific downfalls of the newer models but theyre slightly more expensive than owning a nonturbo impreza/outback but not as expensive as a bmw/mercedes for maintenance. The wrx costs more in gas but you get what you pay for.
A big pro for me is that the challenger is one of the biggest 2 door cars there is.
Itís pretty much a 2 door car thatís the size of a full size sedan. Almost as big as a charger if not the same. Youíd be surprised how spacious and large it is up in person.
Being this big and heavy, itís such a nice cruiser. And mines only a v6 with a cold air intake. Has enough power to have some fun and thrill every time I get into it but not so much power I get in real trouble lol.
After having worked at a Subaru dealer and a Chrysler Jeep Dodge.. I'd go with Subaru. Despite the cheap interior quality, I saw way more happy Subaru service customers than I did CJDR. To be fair, that could have something to do with the quality of service work in each dealer.. but I stand by my choice.
I think the Challenger is a fun car to drive; I drove quite a few different trim levels. But I'd go Subaru.. although STI instead of WRX.
