Default What are the pros and cons of owning a Scion FRS?

I'm looking to buy a Scion FRS as my future starter car, but I don't know how the insurance and problems it would most likely have will do with me.

Insurace will be expensive if you have a payment cause you'll need to have full coverage. The car looks tities but its not turboed which is probably the dumbest thing Subaru did when they made the engine.

Insurance will be above average for other new cars. However, the car is great. Even though it doesn't have a turbo, every input is immediate. When you press the gas you go. It's not a muscle car but arguably more fun because you can use all of the power more of the time. If you feel the power is inadequate, you can put a supercharger on it fairly easily. Look up Edmunds long term testing for all sorts of things about the car. Motor Trend also did a long term test. Both are excellent resources for how the car is day to day.
