Subaru Dealers Organize Parade for Make-A-Wish Teen

19-year-old Daniel from Coconut Creek is currently undergoing treatment for rare blood cancer. Daniel has always had a deep love for the Subaru company and has a dream to visit the main Subaru factory one day in Japan. Unfortunately for poor Daniel, his wish is postponed due to COVID-19, which has caused traveling to be closed. Due to this, Subaru brought his wish to him.

More than 100 cars participated in a parade down Daniel’s street. Including Daniel’s favorite Subaru car, a 2004 WRX STI. A special thanks is given to Subaru of America, Coconut Creek Subaru, and the North Broward Subaru Club.

2004 WRX STI

The 2004 WRX STI is a 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine with a 300 horsepower. The sedan is about the size of a Honda Civic, but with as much as twice the horsepower. Which helps the car get from 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds, and a quarter of a mile in about 13 seconds going at 103 mph. Right now, it is very affordable coming in at a base price of $31,000 but can go as low as $15,000.

The current model Subaru WRX and WRX STI are compact performance sedans for up to five people. They have turbocharged engines, all-wheel-drive performance-oriented systems, and sleek bodywork. The WRX has a 268-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and a 310-hp, 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder WRX STI. This also includes other high-performance brakes, namely Brembo and a driver-controlled center differential. The WRX faces Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen Golf GTI rivalry, while the WRX STI faces competition from the VW Golf R and Honda Civic Type R.

Unlike most other compact front-wheel-drive sedans, the WRX and WRX STI are characterized by standard all-wheel drives. Both cars also offer a basic six-speed manual transmission for those interested in shifting. Connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also an option.

“Share the Love”

Make-A-Wish has been a proud Subaru “Share the Love” partner since 2011. Since that time, Subaru has donated more than $16.3 million to help grant more than 1,855 wishes in the United States. Subaru is a proud owner of the Love slogan, but they find new and creative ways to incorporate it into their everyday lives and their customers. A special thanks is given to Subaru of America, Coconut Creek Subaru, and the North Broward Subaru Club.
