In the past 3 years, my wife has wrecked 3 Subarus; a 2005 Legacy GT, a 2006 Impreza 2.5rs and a 2007 WRX.
Only the rex was directly her fault, but all 3 were totaled.
Because of her record, insurance is obscene, so another rex or other late model car is kind of off the table.
I've found a 1992 Legacy with a blown motor that a friend has given to us. The transmission and drivetrain are in working order, but I'm going to have to find a new engine.
My question to you veterans of the model is what options do I have when looking for a new motor? What model years/motors offer the least amount of trouble swapping in and are there certain models I can look for that offer better performance? Are there years/models,etc. I should avoid?
We'll get her a better car when her rates become more reasonable, but in the meantime, she'll have to be happy with an old beater.
I'll appreciate any input and thanks in advance for any and all help!
