Do Subaru's cause fights or even DIVORCE

Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone else has this problem with thier partners always at every opportunity pinching thier baby?!

Had my gorgeous, gorgeous 04 WRX Impreza with pro drive for a year and half - LOVE IT TOO MUCH

I am lucky to be able to drive to work all week, do school and nursery run etc, etc oh and got to the shops and thats it, i have two kids which means i can't get out and enjoy when i want.

My darling H on the other hand can at every opporchance.

He then leaves me a VW Jetta if i need it. Of course looking at the thing puts me in a bad mood let alone trying to drive it. We have had some major tiffs

Is this a problem most couples have or is just me lol!!

My wife loves my STi, it was in fact her choice more than mine as I had my heart set on an Evo 6. Fortunately for our marriage she is yet to obtain a driving license.

Me actually buying the impreza caused, how shall i say, a 'few' disagreements. Went out and bought it just to prove a point. Very childish I know!

Re: Do Subaru's cause fights or even DIVORCE

When I sold my GTi I was told to go out and buy a family car and I came home with an Impreza . My misses wasn't happy to start with but she loves it now. We don't have any issue's about who drives it because I have both sets of keys (one set hidden) and the insurance is ridiculous for her being only 24... thats what I tell her anyway

LOL what a great bunch of reasons and excuses - will have to think something up

On the plus side he does lovingly spend hours ensuring all is running and looking great so musn't grumble, he's a spray painter which is very handy but he keeps taking it to work and coming back with bits painted, for example the other day my mirrors painted black, the car is silver took me a few days to get used to it

BUT seriously he has got to buy his own

Re: Do Subaru's cause fights or even DIVORCE

lol had a good chukkle reading this. my misses ownes a COUGH clio. but she is fully insured to drive my car but she never does says its to fast for her (CANT WAIT TILL I GET A NEWER 1) so she hates driving it. HOWEVER whenever we have to go any place she always insits that we take my car. i explain to her that it cost a small fortune in petrol just to go tescos 1 mile up the road or to town 2 miles up the road. but she always incists that she will pay for the petrol so she can get clubcard points lol I REALLY DONT UNDERSTAND not that i mind as i love driving my wagoon

Re: Do Subaru's cause fights or even DIVORCE

A few of my friends actually gave up their Subaru's because their wives didn't like them, i asked them if they were mad? Since i got mine their wives are thinking about letting them get one again I DONT UNDERSTAND!

Must admit first day driving to work i was like "what have i done?!" but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th day i fell in love. Can't see me driving anything else ever again.

Re: Do Subaru's cause fights or even DIVORCE

Well sometimes me and my girlfriend cant reach an agreement on which car to drive. She drives a honda crx vtech and wants to drive it all the time and me in my scoob turbo which i want to drive all the time sometimes have to flip for it to see who wins lol. usually at the weekend i'll back down and she takes her car out which is good for me if she takes the car i can have a drink result !!!!

Re: Do Subaru's cause fights or even DIVORCE

My wife loved our 03 STI UK and wishes we didn't sell it, but now she's got an X3 and I bought a 95 Import on my credit card ha ha ha. She hates the classic and won't drive it, which is a result for me.

I remember when she popped out to get some shopping in the Classic, she come back in the house after 10 minutes because she couldn't get it in to reverse to get off the driveway.
