Pros

Great handling, corners well, love all wheel drive-great in snow and ice, low maintenance and reasonable priced parts, looks like WRX, lots of cargo space, love the blue tooth feature

Cons

Needs more power but accelerates ok, passenger front seat sits too low, interior is cheap, moderate road noise

Overall Good Reliable Car For 21k — Love the all wheel drive in winter, low maintenance, will last a long time like most subarus, parts are moderately priced, looks like WRX (hatch), great cargo space. Don't like the passenger front seat because it sits too low, cheap plastic interior, good brakes pads after 45k, add the subwoofer for better stereo sound

Ilove The Car It Is Probably The Best Handeling Car I Ever Owned — Not the best riding car but then it was never ment to be.It has power almost on demand I wanted to get the STI but when I drove the WRX it was a very close second and if I wanted more power the price diffrence from it and the WRX and the STI I can buy the parts and get the same if not more.I get about 21.5 mpg and that has been a average of 6000 miles most has been driveing in stop and go on the highway I get 25.8 on average.The car has lots of room in the trunk it suprised me it does not look like it but there is alot.I had no problem with it this winter as a matter of fact I was going up a mountain and there was a snow plow stuck and I walked right up around it with ease. This the first import that I have ever owned Subaru I research the car for 6 months before I purchased it, it was really hard to find anything bad or really negative about it you know other then people likening their brand better.

Pros

Comfortable ride, acceleration, and handling, two tone paint, cargo space, looks are like WRX  but no turbo, will add a chip when warranty is up, should increase horsepower to 200

Cons

cheap interior, passenger seat is uncomfortable needs more adjustments, mpg could be better, but its a 4 speed, newer models get better mpg but less power.

Good Overall Car — all wheel drive makes it feel responsive, good cargo space, will definitely upgrade sound system with kicker subwoof! Blue tooth is decent. traded in luxury car for this one, not dissappointed at all. Standards, value and resale will hold up. Just did 30 k check, brake pads are still 80% good.dont take it to dealer, they wanted $549, took it to my mechanic for $150.

It Feels Good Paying On Something You Actually Like. Love...it's What Makes A Subaru A Subaru. — awesomeness!! Acceleration is decent compared to an NA motor. Plenty of potential untapped from restrictive exhaust and inefficient intake. Body roll is excessive with stock sways. Solid build quality...as is with all japanese vehicles imo. interior styling is amazing, except for lack of bolster support, hence fatigue on long trips in those bucket seats. cloth seats are better than leathers. Gas mileage is expected with a turbo vehicle. Maintenance is at a minimal (Subarus ARE reliable). The grip takes some getting used to especially navigating sharp turns at high speed where a RWD vehicle would let the back end loose as expected... THRILL TO DRIVE all round!

2011 Wrx — Quick off the line, balanced and easily controlled handling, can be driven hard without risk of components failing. Gas mileage sucks balls 19/25. Handling not as quick as Evo but as a daily driver it is the better of the two.

Pros

Fun. Great handling all-season vehicle. Suspension is stiff enough to be sporty, soft enough to be a comfortable daily driver.

Cons

Hard plastics throughout the interior. Light throttle. A few squeaks and rattles. Chunky gearbox.

Na — All wheel drive turbo charged goodness. Great all weather vehicle, with decent highway mileage, but staying off of boost is definitely hard to resist when you've got open roads ahead of you. Fun and practical. Steering is light but communicative. Long shifter throws, but a short shifter kit easily amends that. Bluetooth, AUX and iPod compatibility are nice amenities.

Love It!! — I love the new Impreza wagon and the folks at Morrie's in Minnetonka (Hani and Nik) were very helpful, friendly, and I appreciated the no-haggle pricing. I got a great deal on the Outback Sport package and a Memorial Day discount. Highly recommended!

Subaru Has Family-friendly Station Wagon Rocket Nailed Perfectly. It Doesn't Get Batter Than This. — The smooth ride quality and quiet engine would make this a deceptively fast car, if the acceleration didn't THROW you in the seat once the turbo spooled! It is ridiculously fun and fast, with exceptional traction control complementing phenomenal handling that inspires confidence. Within the first 1000 miles, the car has mild rattles and too much road noise... but it's hard to care about such things in a car that does over 40mph in first gear, 65 in second (approaching 60mph in under 5 seconds!)

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