Pros

Really amazing sports saloon!

Cons

fuel consumption

25

Monster Sports Saloon — The car was equiped with a 2.2L flat 4 engine. It threw out something like 440 bhp on the bench test. I did not modify it, I was already boosted by the previous owner. The engine was swapped for a 2.2L turbo. low compression pistons, new suspensions, New spoiler, wider track, new STI butcket seats. I never maxed out the car but it had lots of low to mid end torque! The most awesome thing, just like in other subaru, was the engine sound.

Subaru Road Car — Performance: good about 240bhp with dump valve and some other toys. Build Quality: ok but they are designed to be fast and functional only Cost of ownership: cheap to buy but expensive to run. Mid 20's MPG. Fun Faxctor: good but cant get the best out of it on normal roads with traffic about. Need to be in a stage really.

Handling.

Cons

Performance

Is A Good Average Car — Performance - acceleration is average, brakes pull you up pretty fast, handles really good around corners at speeds above recommened. Build quality - average, since i've had the car i have needed to replace the clutch, drivers front CV joint and a few squeaks here and there. Appearance - sexy curves in my opinion, intrerior is pretty average. Fun factor - is fun to messa round in. was surprised when the all wheel drive drifted around a wet corner.

impossible to kill

Cons

you'll never be able to bring yourself to sell it

Subarus Go On Forever — SubaruS are built like tanks.it's got a bulletproof engine which I have put 80k on and its never broken down or failed an MOT in 7 years that I've owned it . I'm not the most careful of owners and don't exactly drive slowly but it takes all the punishment I can give it. I have bought other cars since I purchased the Subaru but can never bare to sell the damn thing!

beside power & transmission...haha

Cons

lack of power & poor transmission

Subaru Impreza 2.5rs — This is not the WRX. With a 2.5 liter engine, this car gave a lot of torque, transmission is a piece of junk. I still love this car cos I beated NSX & Porsches on the track day haha... I put a body kit, exhaust system, full coiled suspension bought all the way over from Japan, bars, brakes system...
