Expensive — nice to drive and a bit of fun drives really nice handles well really comfy and goes round corners with confidence be prepared to spend alot of time at petrol stations and have a spare engine close at hand! interior is nice and the aircon works really well the foot rest is a little to close to the cluch

Pros

Awesome car, handles great, kind of pricey for the work needed to make it great but, great little sports car

Cons

Can't wait till I have some extra money to fix all the little things and maybe add some after market parts

105

8.5 Out Of 10, If All The Little Things Were Fixed I'd Give It A 9 — Awesome Car, but the price I paid at the dealership was crazy, It was way over priced and need $2200 in work, so wasn't the best deal but I love how it handles being all wheel drive and it gets better gas mileage then both of my parents cars! lol Out of 10 Performance - acceleration (6) its automatic :/ , braking (9) , handling (10) I'v never been in a car this nimble Build Quality - has it needed repairs?Yes 2200 worth when I bought it squeaks/rattles- Minor squeak in brakes, I need new pads soon though Appearance - both interior (5) lots of plastic pieces broken and lots of smoking stains and burn marks though I'v seen much worse and exterior styling(9) would have been 10 but the cars 11 years old and has a really bad paint job that is chipping on the front left so that needs to be fixed Cost of Ownership - gas mileage 28-30 highway 23-25 city, maintenance Cheap for everyday maintenance but being a Subaru if something breaks it could be price ( head Gasket leak was $1200, rotors were $800) Fun Factor - is this car fun to drive? Oh my gosh its great even with no turbo charger, my first car was an Audi A4 and it had decent pick up but this car is the same or better and the Subaru has way better cornering.

All around fun car, wish I never would have sold need another!

Cons

Tranny is a bit weak in them and expensive to get.

My Favorite Car Ever. — Performance wise it is the strongest non turbo 4 cylinder Ive ever driven, it feels like it has a ton more torque than this turbo civic I once drove, accelerates like a rocket with 5-6 second 0-60s, can stop on a dime and handling is second to none car goes where you point it. The build of the car is superb, has a nice solid sound when closing doors and trunk, feel like it could survive a bomb. The car looks amazingly sporty and very mean and aggressive with its lights and grill, Sips gas when driving normal and still gets over 20mpg when driving it hard, I do all my repairs myself and Subarus are a beauty to work on lots of room in the engine bay and parts can be found fairly cheap, unless its the transmission, the manual transmission is the only problem area on this car and it isnt all of them, you just have to be lucky to get a good one or swap in a wrx tranny. The car is amazingly fun to drive, my dad is a rwd v8 guy and he even gets a smile on his face when he gets to drive my car, amazing backroad runs and beautiful twisty road fun, also an awesome time on icy parking lots. The car is also very unique not many people have them. If you can get ahold of one of these do it, better yet get one and drop in a wrx or sti swap and you will be eating all other cars on the road, you might even be able to keep up with a vette.

Rarity, handling, community.

Stock power, hard to find unmodified.

Fun Drive, Hard-to-find, Potentially A Track Beast. — The '01 Impreza is not seen very often due to its rarity, so be prepared to see a lot of double-takes. One drawback to this is that they are hard to find if you are in the buyer's market. Power is so-so, but it handles very well with only few modifications. Would recommend for twisty roads.

Subaru's Are Great Cars To Own — I tell everyone who asks me what kind of car should i get that they should get a subaru. I've had no problems with my subaru. It handles great, it gets great gass mileage, and they last a very long time. My subaru has over 200,000 miles on it and it runs like new.

Best Car I Ever Owned — The first car i owned but driven many others before. Looks and sounds and goes well. Had a bit of hammer over the years but never lets me down. Every petrol head should own one. In short, it's a beast!

Horizontial opposed engine balances the car, you tell the difference in the handling

avoid if you have a heavy foot and a lack of money!

Couldn't Be Happier With It, Gotta Love A Scooby :) — Likes to drink the petrol! performs great on a half tank, can be top heavy in the corners but thats to be expected! steering and turning circle is amazing! very comfy! great suspension! it doesn't like setting off in full lock! imboliser cutting off the ability to start the engine 40 seconds after the car has opened is annoying! space and comfort it is fantastic to go with the build quality, would recommend one to anyone!

Faster than most BMW's in the twisties!

Cons

Best All Around Car Out There! — What this car lacks is a turbo. Plain and simple. Suspension is tuned perfectly for twisty roads. The ground clearence is perfect for snow days up to hood. There is just eneough room for me and my girl to go on an adventure. She has not let me down yet and is a blast to drive!

None — gets up and goes, great handling, great gas mileage, just love it. Great mountain driver. Really just overall a great car cant wait to start upgrading parts on the car such as suspension and multiple engine mods. Would really like to build this car from the ground up.
