    Fun Little Car — Mine has over 120K and still running perfect! Not a powerhouse but it drives like new and very sporty. If you drive it right, the car is capable of nearing 30 mpg. Could have used a better factory cupholder location. This is my first Subaru and i am sold for life!!!

    Pros: Sporty look and feel. Pretty good mpg. Nice sounding factory stereo. All Wheel Drive

    Cons: Lack of a decent cupholder.

    Imppu — Easy to drive and accelerates nice, but needs a turbo for my taste. 4wd is very very nice on snow and i love tease all those BMW drivers who doesn`t know any better... Handling on snow is strickly fantastic.

    Pros: Good handling, acceleration, appearence, quality overall...

    Cons: Needs a turbo charger...

    Subaru Impreza — Value for money - supercar performance with school trip practicality - and what a noise! Owned it for 9 years now, and still not tired of the kick from driving it. Rock solid build and reliabillity just adds to the pleasure of owning it.

    Pros: Performance, noise

    Cons: Lacks the modern comforts

    Awesome Car For The Money. — Best two door coupe from the 90's in the American market in my opinion. It's spacious inside, comfortable to ride in, and it gets decent gas mileage. Subaru's reliability factor isn't a joke. Performance is great. Acceleration is respectable for an NA engine, but there are days that I wish it had a turbo. Handling is a dream. I've taken some pretty nasty country roads way faster than I should have, and I didn't once feel like I would lose control. Braking could be a bit better, but it's just fine for the power range that it has right now. She tops out at around 135. Not bad at all. I wish that Subaru had produced its early STi's for the American market. Someday I'm going to swap her out and put a JDM STi engine in there. Then, she'll be perfect.

    Pros: performance, reliability, looks

    Cons: No turbo model.

    1998 Subaru Impreza — Not the best on accelerating, But the AWD compensates for that. No repairs other than general maintenance. Painted the trim to match the paint, Flawless paint with minor dings. Gets about 30 mpg highway and 28ish city. VERY fun to drive on a winding backroad. The Whole Subaru community is a great one to be involved with as they DON'T look down on your car even if it IS a lower trim. its a very accepting group to be involved in.

    Pros: Holds value, Fun to drive, great for ALL seasons

    Cons: Not many.. Drivers headlight is ALWAYS forst to go out.

    Turbo 2000 — Silver Turbo 2000, fast, only one problem it would cut out every so often and wouldn't start straight away. I would say my favourite out of the 3 I've had. At the time was one of very few on the road where I lived, now they're everywhere. Would still buy one again though not a new one.

    Pros: speed

    Cons: Bumpy ride

    Great Mpg For Awd Wagon! — Overall, I really like this car. I love the look, the power is good enough for me and I love the gas milage for an AWD wagon! I bought mine with 107000 miles on it and in need of repairs (I knew this going in). I like the look of the body for a wagon. It reminds me a bit of a 4 door hatch back; it doesn't seem quite like a woagon to me. It's great for camping and for getting to trails off of the dirt/rock/mud state gameland roads here in PA. It also gets me to work and back 60 miles round trip on the highway. I would recommend it to someone who needs some space for hauling things but also decent MPG.

    Pros: MPG for wagon, AWD, body style

    Cons: needs another front cupholder!!

    My First Car — Totally biased, its my first car, of course I love it. Even if it wasn't, I'd still say this car is really good. Unless you have a lot of friends, not too much room in the back.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Getting rusty
