Great, Fast, & Cool. — My wife and I purchased this car for our son on the 16th birthday. It was a great purchase, great overall performance and great maintenance. Never a bit of trouble and my son loves this car. I love to take it out and run it.

007 Would Drive This — Great car! M3, Porsha' and corvettes all try to race me lol. Handles great! No mods but brakes, it has a short throw shifter in it also! Best body type. 2014 bodies are alright. This is a 007 car. Go anywhere any terrain.

Pros

Power and cargospace.

Cons

Not too wild about the color

Sti — Decently powerful family vehicle, Cobb stage 1 tune helped with delivery feel and added a little power. Lots of cargo room. The sedan is a bit "boy racer" and my wife and I couldn't deal with that, so the hatch was what we decided on.

I Absolutely Love My Wrx — My 2nd WRX and 2011 & up are hugely better than previous generations. Go test drive one and see. Fun car for the family too, as long as your family is young and on the small side. Mazda 3 wagon is a joke compared to WRX 2011 & up.

Fast, Fun Car. With A Few Simple Modifications It's Faster Then 90% Of The Cars On The Road. — This car is a blast to drive. With dedicated winter rims and tires it's a blast in the snow too. A few modifications really wakes the car up. The look and style of the car is very aggressive and stands out on any crowded street.

Wrx Sti Is For Real — Performance is outstanding and it's pretty much stock. Looks amazing, especially with the new wheels. Interior is very nice and clean, very well laid out. Its a blast to drive, especially on curvy roads. No comments on cost since it's brand new. Fun factor is way high.

The Best Performance For The Price. This Car Will Outperform Most Vehicles That Msrp For 70k. — The new wide-body style looks awesome. It is obviously taken from the 06/07 WRC Rally car and it really performs well. The suspension is the most impressive upgrade over the 07 sedan. Cornering performance is a unreal when you compared to the 07 sedan. Under steer is a thing of the past. No more worrying about corning at high speeds. Traction has also been upgraded and is a by- product of the stiffened suspension and the upgraded pillow-ball joints. In the 07 Sedan you either slowed down for pot holes or you swerved out of the way. Now you don't have to do that, the suspension can take everything you throw at it and more. I could go on all day about the upgrades to the suspension but I don't have the time. The interior has also been provided a very nice and much needed upgrade. The addition of the heated leather seats is probably the biggest and most welcomed upgrade considering I have been under the knife 4 times for back problems. The entire looks and feel has changed from a bright over the top boy-racer to a more refined and at the same time aggressive look. There is a bit more leg room all around which is good for travelling with passengers. When you get out of the car it doesn't feel like you have been sitting on a metal bench for 3 hours in the cheap seats at SafeCo Field. Another great upgrade over the 07 is the road noise. Even at high revs you can still talk with your passenger and they will be able to hear you. I can see some people marking that as a draw-back if you know what I mean. The new quad outlet/tipped exhaust sounds like heaven for H4 Boxer Engine fans. The sounds is smooth and silky inside and out. At higher rev points you can still hear the classic growl of the boxer which is a huge plus. The enclosed windows are a great improvement over the 07 as well. It doesn't sound like you are closing the door of a 72 Dodge Dart. The doors sound solid and the addition of the side curtain airbags is huge plus as well. Also for the 2011 STI Sedan versus the 07 STI Sedan are standard 18 inch wheels with Dunlop SP Sport 600 tires which make cornering and overall street performance that much better. For the money this vehicle is the best in class. I have driven others in the same price range and none compare to the performance and capabilities of the 2011 Impreza STI.

About By gratefullife

Love the car, it is exciting to drive and rarely gets boring. It is an absolute blast to drive in the snow. And even in 6th gear, there is still enough to get out of it's own way and switch lanes. Read More
