The Super Sube — Overall very happy with this car. It was my first ride ever, so it'll always remain near and dear. Like any car, keep up with maintenance and it will reward you. If you live in an area with snowy winters, I would recommend a subaru over any SUV.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid car that reliably gets you from point a to point b. AMAZING in the snow-- in fact, I love taking it out on days when even the toughest SUV's do not dare to drive. Cargo area enough to store bikes, furniture, even mopeds!

Cons: Repairs can get costly--especially the AWD clutch. If you're buying used and over 100k miles, these are notorious for headgasket leaks. Only cost $300 to fix, but had I not stayed on top of it, I could have blown the engine. Treat it right, and it will love you forever!

I'll Never Look At Another Make Car Again Scoobies Are In My Blood — This car is great fun to drive the performance and accelaration are second to none. As hopefully you will agree i have modified this car in a tastefull way. Every where i go i get comments and looks from every angle. The only down side is the cost of fuel, not because of the amount i use, because of the extautionate price due to the greedy government and fuel companies. But i still love her all the same no matter how much she drinks.

Pros: Reasons to drive this car is it gives you a great buzz when you put your foot down, very very fast, Great.

Cons: Nothing bad to say about this car.

Cool Car And A Great Platform For Aftermarket Support — Reliable and AWD for awsome all year around driving. With the EJ18 it is very under powered but still looks good. Even though the car is slow it is still find to drive on back roads and in the snow.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Realiable and AWD

Cons: Slow

A Very Good Car, Good Grip, Good Brakes, Stupid Amounts Of Accelaration!!! — a good car to own, with a sound that is unmistakable to any other car on the road, would get you anywhere in britain quicker than most cars on the road in any weather condition, the performance was awsome and even keep up with cars 3 times the price tag.. the build quality was good if a tad on the plasticy side inside,, appearance wise it looked fast even when standing still but the but the big boot spoiler did look a little boy racerish, the cost of ownership was a little high for a 2 litre car, servicing needs to be done every 6,000 miles or 6 months whatever was first and insurance is high due to it being a car thief's trophy, but fuel ecconomy is not the reason you buy this car, this car has fun factor definatly as you watch the smile fall of porche driver faces from your rear view mirror!!!!

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

Pros: extreme performance for little money!!!

Cons: high maintainance cost's,

Awesome Car. Buy Subaru. Grip Fo Days — Subarus in general have a lot going for them in my mind. They have the boxer engine and the beautiful rumble. The grip from awd. They aren't super common. They are reliable. Overall great car, mine had the 2.2 liter engine which made decent power, not as sporty as the 2.5RS, but way better power than the 1.8 liter version.

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

Pros: fun to drive, versitile

Cons: awd requires more maintainance

Impreza's Are God — this car is pretty amazing because it is very reliable and the awd on this car blows me away every time i drive it. I know my next car is going to be another subaru, I never knew they could be such a great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD, handling, reliable engine, comfortable, very dependable, love the wagon

Cons: can be laggy if the AC is on, also when cold the car can shutter and its a normal subie thing

I enjoy driving this car. I test drove the Mazda 3 and chose the the Impreza because it had more comfortable back seating. Read More
