    Great Family Car — This is primarily my wife's car, but I drive it a lot, too. It's a great car, decent power, decent handling, decent amount of room for the kids and stuff. When we had dogs (a rottwieler and a german shepherd), there was room for both of them in the back.

    Pros: powerful, reliable, room for kids and dogs

    Cons: back seat is tight for adults

    Pure Fun — This car was supremely great for handling, performance, taking trips to the mountains to go backpacking, rock climbing or just plain ol driving.

    Pros: fast, spacious, passenger and cargo room.

    Cons: um, had to run high octane fuel?

    I Smile Everytime I Sit In It. — I am not the personal owner, the car actually belongs to my dad. From the times that I have driven it, the car feels very responsive and has a very strong pull when the turbo kicks in.

    Pros: Very quick, and the AWD causes no slips and tight grip around corners.

    Cons: Turbo lag.  Until the turbo kicks in, the car performs like any other 4-banger.

    It's A Good Car, Very Utilitarian. — In the 80K miles I've put on this car it has required only minor maintenance, which is great considering how hard I drive. It has been 100% reliable and is fairly fun to drive (although 227hp doesn't do much for me anymore) and is a pretty decent AutoX car.

    Pros: Space, performance, reliability, fuel economy

    Cons: I only like the look of it about 50% of the time.  Also, the interior feels a bit cheap compared to my Legacy.

    This Car Is My Baby (aside From Eloise Of Course!) — I love this car, I've always wanted an impreza, the wagon was a small compromise because I had to get baby paraphernailia in the back.

    Pros: Speed!  Shows anyone who thinks they can beat an estate - duh!

    Cons: Apparently it has high emissions?!!?

    Fun To Drive, Energetic, Quick And Tight, Specially For A Station Wagon, Haha — After owning a modded dsm, this doesn't quite have the power that the dsm did, but 12 years of suspension, handling and ride improvements are definatly apperent, while its not as fast as the dsm, It pretty much does everything else better, brakes dont fade at high speeds as much, and the suspension is alot stiffer, doesn't tip in corners nearly as much. for as much whineing about dsm trannys breaking, I think the wrx ones are worse, while the dsm just don't like to shift, and breaks syncros, forks and other goodies, the wrx shifts pretty good, but the gears like to sheer the teeth right off, I also had a shift hub fail after 1 failed shift... oops. I also like the hatch, its got loads of room, and I like the tray under the floor, leaves room for extra tools, flashlight etc.

    Pros: snappy first gear, quick, solid stock clutch, ride is tight and feels nimble

    Cons: 1-2 gearing gap huge, weak 1st and 2nd gears, itsy stock turbo small wheels and tires stock,

    Good Ride For The Buck — Good ride, predictable and funny to drive, but brakes fades very fast.

    Pros: Solid engine, heated seats.

    Cons: Weak brakes, weak insolation.

    I Love My Car! — It could use more space in the backseat, and it would be nice to be able to fold down the entire back seat instead of just the center section. If you modify the engine at all or do any performance upgrades, make sure to have it tuned, it's well worth the money.

    Pros: Not the fastest car on earth, but for the money and everything else you get with it, its pretty fast.

    Cons: Gets you tickets.....
