      apples and oranges but ill take an impreza for 2k less and buy snow tires for a few seasons, k thanks.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm aware (spent enough time at McGill), hence the apples to oranges comment referencing the autoblog conversion.

        • 4 Years Ago
        this is canadian prices. impreza would cost you at least 5k more
        • 4 Years Ago
        In Canada a impreza wagon starts at $21K and to get any sort of options you're looking at least $25K. Cars are expensive in the great white north.

      I have seen the "active" edition of the 2 and was impressed with how good it looked in person.

        While it's nice, you definitely don't need all wheel drive in the snow. Having lived in Canada for 15+ years, I still remember most cars in the ditch being 4x4 SUV's, heh.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I remember driving down one of the highways near my home town and seeing a 4X4 Jeep Cherokee balanced perfectly on those 3 foot high concrete dividers (the ones made of long individual blocks). The driver lost control in the snow and due to the sloping ends on the divider ended up sliding his jeep right onto the median where he came to a stop. My RWD RX-7 never had a problem though. Snow tires make all the difference.

        • 4 Years Ago
        As long as you guys keep the Scions.

      Yeah, I've sent them tips and I'm pretty sure they don't read em. One of the good tips was a 2 week only documentary on Hulu about an entrepreneur that made Hugo famous and wanted to bring Chinese company over to America. Chinese totally screw him over >_>.

      Where did you get your currency conversions from? 3 months ago?

      The difference now is about $12 on this car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I guess you're looking for an in into the conversation or you want us to know that you're on Internet? or maybe you're just bored (as I apparently am)

        Current convertor built into my Apple calculator = 19 175.49
        XE = 19 164.70
        Google = 19 180.27

        This is not a comment about the car, but the currency comparisons in the post alerted me to the fact that I had not realized the US dollar had become so worthless.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Eh?
        • 4 Years Ago
        No, I'm correcting a mistake. Our dollar is almost at par of yours and it should stay that way for a long time. That was because our bank regulations prevented the ridiculousness of your situation. We're somewhat proud of that and we(i) don't like to get short changed. We're still paying way more for cars though, which sucks.
