09 Impreza — I love this car but with a growing family the small storage becomes an issue. Might be good as a second car. The AWD will get the car nearly anywhere you want. Power is sluggish until high up in rpm range.

Pros

0-60 5.0-5.2 seconds!!! Sleeper most people have no idea how quick it is.  When you really get on it once the turbo kicks in you've got "G's" :-)    ...what a blast.  The quality is the same as the BMW owned previously without the stuffiness.  It's simply FUN!

Cons

Way to easy to speed (look out for Barney).  I'd never promote speeding except on a closed course.  My treat is entering the highway (poof!).  Wheel color is a mystery (Subaru will only advise it's gray)!  Really! I'd Love to know why the wheel color is so mysterious.

Wrausarex (please Keep Your Hands In The Vehicle At All Times). — One of best decisions I've made was trading in my 2004 WRX for an 09 WRX! Although I think my 04 looked Beefy like the Incredible Hulk... this WRX has the little niceties (MP3, Bluetooth - phone, Satellite Radio) which as I become older learn to appreciate more & more. The Dunlop's SP Sport 01 seems to be lasting longer than my old WRX (Bridgestone Potenza's). Both tires are very noisy.

Great Car — I love this car! In first gear around 3500 rpm when the turbo hits you get thrown back into your seat. Tht is an amazing feeling. It corners like nothing else i have driven before. I havent had enough time to write a full review yet.

I Drove This Car For About 20,000 Miles Mainly To Work. I Retired And Don't Need It Anymore. — The car handles very well , gets OK gas mail age and has a outstanding sound system. The car is well built with tight seams and low road noise. I had the car serviced at recommended service intervals at the Subaru dealer. I enjoy driving it. Handles well and accelerates very nicely. You feel very safe in the car and it is fun to drive.

Pros

The WRX is the best performance bargain on the market. I don't know of any turbo charged AWD boxer engine cars for under $45 grand. These cars are easy to tune and adding a performance exhaust unlocks 20%+ horse power instantly. The car is comfortable and a good daily driver, which makes it much more enjoyable during the weekly commute than a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. The seats are comfortable. The only downside is the interior, but if you wanted "Kultur" and performance, you would pay up for an Audi. M3, or Porsche!

Cons

Budget car plastic interior in certain areas to control costs.

Compact Sedan That Can Transport The Family With Coupe Sports Car Performance. — The price point of the WRX model is unbeatable for an AWD car and the engine build quality of Subaru. I can say that after 23000 miles, I have had no problems besides the routine maintenance. Change oil, filter, and fluids at the proper intervals and this car will last a long time.

Pros

A stylish, attractive little warm hatch (not quite "hot"); The rear seats fold down 60/40 for a great amount of cargo capacity; Looks just as good--if not better--with the racks taken off (an incredibly easy process); Clear tail lights are a nice touch; 17" wheels look good and drive well

Cons

Legroom in the back seats is...lacking; The automatic is only a 4-speed; "Manu-matic" shifting is less than smooth unless you really treat it like a stick with respect to being on and off the accelerator at the right times and in the right amounts; Leather seats, but the vast majority of the interior is plastic; Not quite as powerful or zippy as I'd like--granted, I'd like a WRX STI; Subaru's conversion to equal-length headers has left newer models completely devoid of that pretty Boxer Engine purr; No cup holders in the back seat; Nitrogen-filled tires might be all well and good, but finding places to fill them is obnoxious

In My Experience, You Can't Go Wrong With Any Subaru, And This Is No Exception. — I got this little girl for $18.5k (before extended warranty) with plenty of options, 2 years old, with less than 12k miles on it--practically brand new. A Subaru is no stranger to 200k miles, so she's looking to be a fantastic investment. A 2.5i and symmetrical AWD (of course) do the trick for getting to the slopes in the southern Appalachians (site of my hometown), navigating Atlanta traffic (site of my graduate school), and every bit of the drive in between.
