Cons

Acceleration,

25

Fully Functional And Fun Car — I love being able to pack up the car and go camping. With the subaru I can fold all the seats down and i have ample room for what i bring. I have also fit six people in this car with a cooler. With the rack attachments its ideal for my kayak and any other toys i want to put up there.

Pros

Goes anywhere.  Ok mileage.  Very practical yet fun to drive.

Cons

Subaru needs help with electronics and audio.   Very few gauges on dash - tach, speedo, and gas.

I'm Really Surprised More People Don't Own These. — I HAD to buy a 4WD to get up our hill. Sadly had to get rid of my Mustang. Bought the Impreza because it wasn't as "boxy" as the other small SUVs. Since it was based on the car it was zippy, cornered good, and was fun to drive. Some of the other SUVs were just so boxy and boring! Had it for 2 years now and we love it. In fact, my wife took it over because she loves it so much. Amazing what you can fit in it. It's not as big as the SUVs, but you can put the seats down and get a lot in there. We have had four people and luggage/coolers in the car for long weekend several times with no issues. The AWD goes anywhere. The AWD actually helps the cornering and it is fun but still practical. Subaru needs help with the electronics but they are ok (not great, but ok). My wife has her ipod connected and loves the touch screen, but otherwise the controls are not the most intuitive. Gas mileage changes by .3 (Why?) so your mileage (on the dash) is ALWAYS divisible by 3. (who thought of that?) Could not get a stick unless you get a WRX model or real basic model :-( Had to get the CVT but at least the paddle shifters help.

Pros

Great handling in poor weather. Accelerates quickly and brakes well when needed. Automatic transmission with paddle shifters is smooth and effortless. Decent gas mileage. Comfortable front and rear seats.

Cons

Wish I had a manual transmission. Paint seems to be thin and inferior to that on older model Subaru vehicles that I have owned.

All Purpose Small Car — Reliable. Good function and performance. Step up from 2WD economy vehicles of same class. Hatchback to cargo area with fold down seats make loading and unloading easy. Great handling on country roads and wet weather. I hope this car lasts like my other Subaru models, which have 135K to 235K miles.

Pros

I feel like I'm driving a race car

Cons

The sound system

My 2012 Wrx Hatchback — This car is amazing, the acceleration is amazing, the braking is amazing, the handling is very precise. The build quality is pretty good, I had a minor transmission issue, but they fixed it under warranty, no questions asked. The car is pretty solid, although the highway has a little noise. Also the sound system is not very good. This car is great because you can go 7500 miles before an oil change, but every 30000 miles you have to get the oil in the differential changed which is a $500 service. The gas mileage in this car all depends on how you drive it. THIS CAR IS A BLAST TO DRIVE EVERY DAY
