    Those That Drives Subaru, Never Change To Something Else. It Is Addictive. — Excellent handling, stylish, irreplaceable sound, comfortable but poor engine performance. High gas mileage but fun to drive compensate everything negative. Poor braking but tough and rigid body. Addictive car, though there is none in that category to really run against it. EVO is nothing compared to Impreza. No excessive electronics, and unpredicteable on roads. Men like adrenaline giving cars. Drive Subaru.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Excellent handling (AWD)

    Cons: Not enough torque

    Awesome Car In The Snow And The People You Meet Who Own Other Subarus It Is A Family! — Its sure not the fastest car but it is quick for being a 2.5L boxer 4 without a turbo. Braking with the right setup is awesome The car is a BLAST to drive especially in the winter and a fun summer cruiser It takes a big heart to like the appearance of some subarus but its an awesome look cost of ownership isnt bad one bit. except for some parts lol

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

    Pros: Great daily driver and good for auto x if you have right suspension setup

    Cons: if you dont like the style then dont get it lol

    It Can Take The Abuse — Bullet proof car on a budget. Great to learn how to drive an AWD car fast. Good car to learn how to drive fast anyway. Handled good but handled way better after bigger sway bars and linkage. It's definitely a momentum car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rally car on a budget

    Cons: Cant think of any

    A Decent Little Car :) — I am glad I made this purchase! She's a pretty good car...a few little quirks, but nothing major, and everything has seemed to work well so far *knock on wood*! There are some things that I have to repair or upgrade on it, such as the suspension and the dash clock, but otherwise it's been a good ride.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: AWD!

    Cons: It can be a bit rattly and I need new suspension.

    Impreza — I think I can safely say that I bought a lemon. In the first 2 and a half months of me owning it, it has been in the shop for 4 weeks (and counting!) the performance is pretty bland (I know I could have gotten a wrx or STI) the handling is pretty good, but the transmission is garbage, I have been driving a manual for a long time, and I have never had clutch issues until now. This could have been an amazing car, but there are too many issues

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: handles nicely, decent fuel economy

    Cons: LEMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great Car — Great car and very reliable. Has a lot of power for a 4 and can beat out most 6s. Not a fan of the look of the back end, but i love the look of the front. Hands like better then any car Ive ever driven. Stereo system could of been a little .

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

    Pros: very nice kick for a flat four. as much power as most 6s. semetrical AWD

    Cons: not stick

    Great — Quick, fun and great in the snow. The AWD is incredible. Looks cool with the little wing. Little upkeep cost. Handling is awesome with the AWD. Braking is not very impressive. Definitely a good buy. I recommend this to anyone that needs a cool car that tears up the snow.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: fuel

    Gotta Love It — Its all good homie!!! The handling, turning and all wheel drive make it an enjoyable vehicle to drive. The winter is the most convenient time to drive in any amount of snow. Never forget to change your oil every 5 thousand miles!!!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The Color

    Cons: You break you buy!!

    2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 Rs — Performance is good for an N/A 4cyl. Fit and finish is great for a car in this price range. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I love it's classic look! Fun ? Drive one, see what you've been missing.

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

    Pros: Super fun to drive, easy to work on, tons of aftermarket support for making them go faster! Subaru has a cult following / community that is very knowedgable.

    Cons: Paint could be better chips easily, Panels tend to dent easily.

    02 Rs — wish it was a wrx. turns real nice, but out here in the flatlands it'd be nice if i had more acceleration. easy to work on so pretty cheap to fix. overall, this thing is a go-cart with a stereo in it

    Pros: go-kart

    Cons: slow
