Pocket Rocket — Poket rocket. Love the performance, style, comfort, everything. Best car I've ever had, with extra boost did eat most V8's alive. Cornered like it was on rails and to0ok of like a jet plane. Words can't describe! Sooo much fun!

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

Pros: Sooo much fun

Cons: performance

Third One That I Will Drive Into The Ground — Tool not a trophy, Fun, reliable, sporty, versatile. It's a tank. No matter who own's one, it seems to fit. Many mod options, and almost all subaru parts are inter changable. My next will be a pre 1996 so that i may motor swap without serious comp hassle.

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

Pros: It's a Suboobaru,I'm in upstate NY

Cons: Jealous Volkswagen owners

2.2 Review — good handling in all weather conditions, good hight for off road driving. the car is a blast to drive once you get used to it.... which only takes about two days. build quality is that of older Chevys, it is a very sturdy car that can take a beating. the parts can get a little pricey though. the car is very fuel efficient, even with no oxygen sensor you can still get 20 mpg. exterior is very unqiue and attractive.... interior is kinda plain though. the rear hatch rattles around 80mph.

Pros: great daily driver. good off road handling

Cons: slight bucking on take off and in gear changing (on standard)

Wonderfull — the performance of the Subaru Impreza 2.0 is surprisingly good. it is very light (1160 kg) so you get from 0 - 100 kph (0 - 62 mph) in 8.7 seconds. That is quicker than a standard Porsche Cayenne. the build quality is the best. only regular maintainence required (brakepads etc.) but it is getting rusty. That is more to do with the icelandic winters and salt an the streats though. Appearance is allright. Better than previous subarus but its not fab. there is gray plastic and its not desperatly pretty. but i like it. Cost of ownership is just a bit more than a honda civic actually. it does about 12.0 l/100km (dno mpg) maintenance is just the same as every other car in this range. Fun Factor: this car has a big fun factor. its 4wd which is great for a car this small. its epic fun in snow (iceland... you know) it handles well and is just an exelent good little car.

Pros: small 4wd 2.0 is powerfull

Cons: rust (only in iceland)

My Scooby — My impreza is running 305bhp with 305lbft of torque. i love the sound of the flat 4 engine though the 3" exhaust. My scooby handles well and does between 18 and 28 mpg which isn't bad for a tuned scooby.

Pros: Its bloody good fun!

My Subaru Rocks!!! — I love my car in every way possible The only downfall I've seen in my 5 years of owning it is the gas mileage. It gets a whopping 24-26 miles to the gallon city, which isn't too bad, but its not a Toyota Prius with 40 miles to the gallon. :-P

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

The only thing missing on the Limited model is a power passenger seat. Everything else is great- ride, handling, gas mileage, interior room. Read More

Review By Guru9WBTD6

My first impression is that all trims of the imprezas are slow. I test drove the base models all the way up to the limited models. An impreza might not be such a good choice in a critical driving situ... Read More
