Pros

Great Handling, Great Look, Great feel of power, Great acceleration, Love it!

Cons

Bad Lunch Turbos aren't active while not moving and on the Road start is not good enough,
If I Boost for 1.1 bar fuel goes about 17-19 Liter per 100 KM, but when i boost i am forgetting about it and don't really care its such good feeling

25

Great Impressions Great Car Great Everything! — everything is Perfect! unless Engine must be taken care really good, i'm changing OIL on every 5k KM, also you have to watch not to overheat turbines subaru really do not like it, and bad is if car is Stock in summer intercooler is not enough to cool air and engine goes little bit worse but its perfect in bad or rainy or showing conditions. LOVE THIS CAR BEST OF ALL SUBARU RULES! P.S. I want 2004 Imprezza WRX STI for next car :)

Pros

Looks (subtle, but clean), interior is very nice, AWD!, dependable, decent gas milage, enough performace for my needs

Cons

Can be sort of bland looking to some people, parts aren't as easy to find (just had the brakes replaced), wind noise

55

Great Car. — First let me start by saying AWD rules. It gets decent gas milage (22-28 real world MPG), is decently fun to drive, and has been very reliable. It is closing in on 100k miles and it still feels very solidly built. I am sold forever on Subarus because of this car.

Pros

The look is great!

Cons

The noise from the windows

45

It's A Great Commuter Car. — Alright I don't like the small mirrors and the fact the transmission jerks to speed up, or the load noise from the closed windows. I get usually about 26 mpg high way, 21 city which is I guess ok with it being AWD all the time.

Subaru Is Always Subaru — plain white,clean looks, no adoptions or extra gadgets..perfect handling and braking,superb brakes,stylish sporty interiors, low maintainance.. needs some extra money for hoods and spoilers.planning to buy solar tint glasses and lower the chasis ...but milage sucks!!

Subaru: The Best Awd On The Planet! — Subaru AWD can't be beat! I've pulled more than a few people out of the ditch with this beast--including the time I had to tow my Volvo out of a field in 10" of snow! For wintertime driving this car HANDS DOWN cannot be beat--even with all season radials. I've never had snow tires on her as I've never felt the it was necessary. For performance, this wagon is okay. It's not the fastest by any means, but it has enough power to pull our two jetskis on a double trailer. Gas mileage suffers b/c of AWD, but even with 150K+ miles on her, I still get about 20mpg in a mix of city/highway driving. This was my first Subaru and I LOVE IT! We're going to hang on to this one to give to my son in a few years. Next Up: Subaru WRX (maybe even an STI... depends on daily drivabilty factor)

Not For Our Country — wonderfull car to buy but not in lebanon, you will have great dificulties to find parts or accessories, especially LEGACY 2000 till 2002 models: aviod them as much as possible. in the end its kind of perfect car to drive

Pros

Short gear ratios! gotta love that

Cons

Gas milage could be better..

35

Loving My 02 Lgt — Gotta love the AWD. Love the gear ratios (Manual), and i love the torque. missing some more go in the higher RPM range but i can get used to that.. i love the interior room, especially at the back. It could use a turbo tho. the engine feels like its underpowered for the size of the car..
