VEHICLE STORY

I've had this car for 4 years now and it's a really good SUV. It has great practicality and strong performance - well it has enough power to make it fun. It has been completely reliable - except for a few dead batteries which were my fault (left interior light on for a day and left AC on without engine running). After owning it so many years, you do get to realize there are a few things that can be improved. The main things are the crappy standard stereo, quiet exhaust, slightly jerky fuel mapping, unsupportive seats, poor tires in the snow and shiny fake chrome grill. The next thing I want to do is lower the car a couple of inches and stiffen up the handling a little, either with some lowering springs or BC Racing coilovers. And if I'm doing that, why not some 19inch wheels from the latest WRX STi along with some summer tires.
