Great handling, lots of go power. A blast to drive

I Love This Car. — Been driving this car for over four years now. It's been a lot of fun, and it has been very practical for me. I'm getting a little older now and I think I might like something a little more comfortable, but otherwise no complaints. BTW, I'm 6'3" and this car fits me very well, both in leg and headroom.

Nothing to hate.

Awesome! — This car is very fast, I love the power every time I get in it. Gas mileage is the only downside for me but it is worth it because its so much fun to drive. I would recommend imprezas to anyone.

My Subie. — i really like the subaru impreza 06 and 07 because of the look the power and speed its a plus i also like that it doesn't loos value compare with other cars… the only onereazon I'm selling my car its that i always waned to have a car with turbo… and i don't want to do it to this one… can't afford it to be true… besides i got to car and i need something bigger… but this car has everything you look in a car its fast, looks good, its comfortable back and front side, easy to upgrade…. i really love the subie….

Pros

Acceleration and handling

Cons

Leg room in rear seats is lacking.

25

Bravo Zulu Subaru! — Acceleration is good. handling is above average and braking is good. Tires wear evenly due to Symmetrical AWD. Goes well in winter (snow/ice). Very reliable and safety rating is good. All around a good car to own and drive.

Pros

Fun family outdoor car.

Cons

Lacks performance

55

Perfect Car For Getting To And From — Acceleration is mild due to lack of turbo. Handles just the same as all Impreza family vehicles. Build Quality is amazing, no major repairs, some minor recalls. Exterior Appearance could use some work, but maintains family styling. Gas mileage could be improved on, but with owning this vehicle, one doesn't think about fuel economy.

inexpensive to operate

Safe — The car drives and handles extremely well. It gives a fun driving experience without the loss of utility. The cost of running it isn't expensive. However, at 52000 one of the head gaskets started to seep. The car is still covered under waranty, so repair is no charge.. its just a little unsettling that this started this early.

Pros

It gets used as an everyday car

Cons

Around town it rides a bit like a go cart

35

Can't Really Find Anything I Dislike About The Car, Maybe The Keypad To Start It, Would Be The Only — I love this car, handles better on the highway than around town, is fast, handles well in all weather conditions, corners well, put 18 inch wheels on it, and then put the wrx rims on the Forester, it is a lot of fun to drive

Boxerturbo, power/performance, build quality.

Cons

Fuel consumption. Average ride quality. Lack of engine sound.

285

The One And Only Wrx Plus — I am a big Subaru fan. Especially the Legacy 3.0R Spec.B and the WRX and STI versions are ver tasty! I drove this 2006 brand new Scooby WRX 2,5 turbo during a test drive. What immediately disappointed me was the absence of any engine sound. A Subaru boxer should bark at you every time you touch the loud pedal. Not in this one. Then there was the ride. Subaru has been renowned for its brilliant filtering of bumps due to its rallye-bred suspensions. Not in this one. I found it to be jumpy and uncomfortable on high-frequency bumps. A shame, because I was really going to buy one.
