How did you get the car?
I had dreamt of owning a car for about six years when I was still a hustler. So when I landed a new job, a car was on top of my priorities list.
I saved enough coins and decided it was a perfect time to search for a car (anything that could be driven and had four wheels, but I was particular to Toyota Allex/Runx).
During the search process, a friend of mine informed me that his friend was selling his Toyota Wish.
I went to view the vehicle and I fell in love. Now we’re a street couple.
Why the name wishbaru?
I’ve always WISHed to have a fast car, a Subaru. So wish+Subaru = wishbaru.
What made you fall in love with this car?
The size (seven seater) is perfect for road trips. It is fuel efficient and one doesn’t have to break the bank to maintain it.
What does the car do for you?
I use it for my day to day errands.
Any memorable moment that got you even more attached to your car?
Last year, we had a charity event with Forester nation in Mombasa. The car outdid my expectations.
Furthermore, before the Covid-19 pandemic, every weekend was a roadtrip. Each roadtrip is memorable in its own way since the towns we visit are unique in their own ways.
What have you done to her that makes her different from other cars of the same model?
A lot of care and maintenance. The extras are the interiors, lighting and the heavy sound system from Lee audio.
Tell us about the sound system you have fixed in it?
Lee Audio did a good job with installing the sound system. It comprises of a 9” android radio, Boschman seven band equaliser, front door speakers Pioneer 350watts, three pairs of tweeters Ts 20, one pair of Bullet tweeters, Audio bank five way Cross over, rear mids, Pioneer 8” speakers and 6” 350watts, Sony 4 channels 1000watts driving tweeters, Pioneer Gm8704 1200watts on mids, Audio bank 3800watts mono block on subs, 2 TSW3003D4 in a kerfed box, and an 70A battery.
What are some of the drawbacks about this car?
It’s not realy a fast car, but I still love its service.
