Subaru Impreza Is A Perfect Car For This Nw Mama — My husband and I bought our Subaru when we became parents and it has held up beautifully! It is a small car but holds everything we need for a weekend getaway easily. It has only needed one repair (aside from the scheduled maintenance) and the brakes and tires are still ticking along. I can haul kid stuff, park easily, and the car cleans up nicely. I love my little Impreza Outback, it is a perfect mama car and I feel safe driving it in rain and snow in the Northwest!

Pros: all wheel drive, compact but perfect for small families

Cons: haven't discovered any yet

My Subie — I love it not only because Its way better looknig than any of the imprzas since 02. but nothing beats the assurity you get with AWD its so practical/ versatile. its compact and so easy to drive if you just want to cruise yet you know you've got the power and perfrmance on demand whenever you need it. The interior is comfortabel and ergonomic then theres the unmistakeable sound of the engine. What I don't like is that everyone thinks its a WRX and wants to race you

Pros: good for cruising but has the power when you need it

Cons: Everyone thinks its a WRX and wants to race you

It's A Wrx.... Hello? It Rocks! — Subaru know how to build cars. This thing could take corners at break-neck speeds and never let up. Loves to hang onto the road, corners on rails, super comfortable and super reliable. I put a beautiful exhaust and modest BOV on it... and it sounded just the way a Rexx should.

Pros: Turbo, AWD.... street cred.

Cons: Pricey to run, own, maintain :(

Great Daily Driver, But Get A Wrx If You Want To Go Fast. —

I really do love my Impreza. I have wanted one since I saw them doing rally in the WRC. Overall, it is an awesome car. It has nearly all the practicality you could need (expect a fold down rear seat). It is a blast to drive, the gearing is so close and quick. When I first got it, it was kind of fugly. but the right mods really brought it around. Stock, it also pushes and rolls too much, though on the street, you have so much grip you don't notice. I do a lot of auto-x and it is a great choice for this, the 2.5L motor is more responsive then the WRX motor, so it may even be better for this. But the fact I can't turbo it without the motor blowing and it still costing a fortune, makes a WRX look like a much better choice. If you want to go fast, the WRX is the only choice, it has so much more potential for very little more price. The RS is perfect first car, a good commuter, and a good choice for a fun, if somewhat average, daily car. Would get an older one or a WRX if I bought it again, but I still love it.

Pros: AWD. 4 doors, reliable, good mileage, fun, close ratio 5 speed, good platform.

Cons: Slow, underpowered, understeers, fugly stock, can't add turbo.

Boo Hoo — After someone hit my Cobalt, I took my dad's Impreza. The all-wheel drive is fun, but the interior is pretty low-quality, and the exterior isn't very nice. Since the TS is the base model, expectations shouldn't be very high. The motor has a unique sound that definitely isn't American. SInce the wagon isn't attractive, I don't like being seen in it. That means I won't upgrade what I don't like about it. The audio is a definite improvement, featuring bass that the Cobalt couldn't support until I installed subwoofers. I'm not impressed with this particular year even though I do think that Subaru makes good cars. Try a higher model if you want to consider an Impreza.

Pros: symmetrical all-wheel drive

Cons: ugly hub caps, uglier steelies, AWD means that one popped tire leads to four new tires

Needs The Turbo For Straight-line Speed But Too Loveable For Everything Else — lack of window sills creates air noise, the AT tranny and 165lb/ft of torque make it a little sluggish, but the brakes and handling are amazing, the AWD is a blast, with a few mods it looks quite pretty (especially some black 18s), and it's still got plenty of room for friends, cargo, and a solid audio system

Pros: space, look, reliability, AWD, handling

Cons: acceleration ability

Great Car — My car has pretty good acceleration for it being stock. Handleing is great and it being AWD is the best thing about it because it has awsome handleing. I have to admit it is really dirty though because i live on a farm an it has a dirt driveway so its imposible to keep clean, and there is some chipping paint on the hood from stones and debris coming from other vehicles. i try to keep the interior as clean as i can. I love to drive this car its a great ride.

Pros: 4 wheel drive and great handleing

Cons: Bug eye headlights lol
