Excellent handling (AWD)

Cons

Not enough torque

Those That Drives Subaru, Never Change To Something Else. It Is Addictive. — Excellent handling, stylish, irreplaceable sound, comfortable but poor engine performance. High gas mileage but fun to drive compensate everything negative. Poor braking but tough and rigid body. Addictive car, though there is none in that category to really run against it. EVO is nothing compared to Impreza. No excessive electronics, and unpredicteable on roads. Men like adrenaline giving cars. Drive Subaru.

Gotta Love It — Its all good homie!!! The handling, turning and all wheel drive make it an enjoyable vehicle to drive. The winter is the most convenient time to drive in any amount of snow. Never forget to change your oil every 5 thousand miles!!!!!

Great — Quick, fun and great in the snow. The AWD is incredible. Looks cool with the little wing. Little upkeep cost. Handling is awesome with the AWD. Braking is not very impressive. Definitely a good buy. I recommend this to anyone that needs a cool car that tears up the snow.

A Decent Little Car :) — I am glad I made this purchase! She's a pretty good car...a few little quirks, but nothing major, and everything has seemed to work well so far *knock on wood*! There are some things that I have to repair or upgrade on it, such as the suspension and the dash clock, but otherwise it's been a good ride.

Pros

symmetrical all-wheel drive

Cons

ugly hub caps, uglier steelies, AWD means that one popped tire leads to four new tires

Boo Hoo — After someone hit my Cobalt, I took my dad's Impreza. The all-wheel drive is fun, but the interior is pretty low-quality, and the exterior isn't very nice. Since the TS is the base model, expectations shouldn't be very high. The motor has a unique sound that definitely isn't American. SInce the wagon isn't attractive, I don't like being seen in it. That means I won't upgrade what I don't like about it. The audio is a definite improvement, featuring bass that the Cobalt couldn't support until I installed subwoofers. I'm not impressed with this particular year even though I do think that Subaru makes good cars. Try a higher model if you want to consider an Impreza.

handles nicely, decent fuel economy

Cons

LEMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

45

Impreza — I think I can safely say that I bought a lemon. In the first 2 and a half months of me owning it, it has been in the shop for 4 weeks (and counting!) the performance is pretty bland (I know I could have gotten a wrx or STI) the handling is pretty good, but the transmission is garbage, I have been driving a manual for a long time, and I have never had clutch issues until now. This could have been an amazing car, but there are too many issues

Great daily driver and good for auto x if you have right suspension setup

Cons

if you dont like the style then dont get it lol

Awesome Car In The Snow And The People You Meet Who Own Other Subarus It Is A Family! — Its sure not the fastest car but it is quick for being a 2.5L boxer 4 without a turbo. Braking with the right setup is awesome The car is a BLAST to drive especially in the winter and a fun summer cruiser It takes a big heart to like the appearance of some subarus but its an awesome look cost of ownership isnt bad one bit. except for some parts lol

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

space, look, reliability, AWD, handling

Cons

acceleration ability

65

Needs The Turbo For Straight-line Speed But Too Loveable For Everything Else — lack of window sills creates air noise, the AT tranny and 165lb/ft of torque make it a little sluggish, but the brakes and handling are amazing, the AWD is a blast, with a few mods it looks quite pretty (especially some black 18s), and it's still got plenty of room for friends, cargo, and a solid audio system

4 wheel drive and great handleing

Cons

Bug eye headlights lol

Great Car — My car has pretty good acceleration for it being stock. Handleing is great and it being AWD is the best thing about it because it has awsome handleing. I have to admit it is really dirty though because i live on a farm an it has a dirt driveway so its imposible to keep clean, and there is some chipping paint on the hood from stones and debris coming from other vehicles. i try to keep the interior as clean as i can. I love to drive this car its a great ride.

Rally car on a budget

Cons

Cant think of any

It Can Take The Abuse — Bullet proof car on a budget. Great to learn how to drive an AWD car fast. Good car to learn how to drive fast anyway. Handled good but handled way better after bigger sway bars and linkage. It's definitely a momentum car.
