Subaru Impreza 1999 — Pros: fun to drive, stable in turns, great acceleration, doesn't requires frequent maintenance , good air conditioner, fuel efficient, solid breaks reaction (on emergency situations). tons of storage space. Cons: "not the most gorgeous girl in the city", brakes mechanism acts weird and needs some getting used to, the seats are too low so you drive in some sort of lying position, noisy engine, the interior feels like its made out of cheap materials to sum it up: The 1999 Subaru Impreza is a great car for young drivers who cant afford a new car. if you considering it, don't let the 1999 tag scare you. this car is really reliable. the maintenance is minimal. nevertheless, you can still feel the chemistry between you and the car. highly recommended by me! total score in ARIscale : 7/10

Subaru Impreza Rs Is Greatness Out Of Japan. — Best looking car of the 90's. Good performance for the money, AWD and swapability with any subaru ever made. It will take anything you throw at it, and the engine is super easy to work on. What more to ask for?

Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti Version 6 Type R — WRX STI Type R Version 6 coupe last of the classic shape Impreza's. 0-60 4.0 secs, 160MPH Top Speed, handles like a Subaru... Build quality - Very good for a jap motor. 22mpg, 8mpg if you kane it. O verall very capable sports car, and for the money you will be very hard pushed to find something better performance wise.

The Perfect Car — Beautiful, Reliable, alright MPG, Fast, Great Handling, AWD is great for snow and dirt roads. This is an all around great car unless you need a more spacious vehicle for a family or whatever reason. This car will also last until the day you die.

Pros

Light, Short gears, Great gas mileage with stock motor.

Cons

None really, the car has been pretty good to me. 155k miles and still running strong!

35

My Project Car — Good news: This car is super good as a DD. It gets great gas mileage in which I get an average of 26 MPG with mixed driving. The car is great to drive coming from a 2002 WRX. The whole car is 400 pounds lighter. It feels a lot more nimbler than my WRX. Kinda bad news: I'm swapping in a WRX motor into this car so that means, slightly worse gas mileage with premium gas. But hey, you gotta pay to play, right? More of an update when I get the turbo motor in. Would not recommend because I got the 2 door to be different than all the other WRXs and STis.

Cons

head gasket leaks

Subaru Love — These years have a head gasket leak problem but I loved this car! The body style is right before they went with the "bug eyes" style, I love either this body style or the 2004/2005's. I can't wait to own another Subaru.

Subaru Impreza Gt — Uhm right. Well the performance is awesome but it could do way better, which is what I'm working on. The car is beautiful both inside and out. Metal blue paint and with a black stripe over the hood and black roof. It doesn't cost much to run, which is great compared to the horse count. And it's spectacular to drive, best car I've driven so far. And probably will stay that way for awhile. Could probably write way more, but don't really have the time atm...
