Overall:

The car had bodywork that look like a five-year-old did it. No clean title. Needed a head gasket job. The car has been in an accident on the right side Which was also not transparent in the Carfax. The rim is bent and the rear from the accident. The car was basically not sellable

Nice And Tough Little Ride. — I like the inclement weather handling of this car it is far superior turning in snow than a longer wheel base and the ride is very similar. It is comfortable for four passengers and the reduced hatch space still allows for lots of stuff. Mileage is not way up there compared to similar sized cars, but its worth having the extra power. Keeping up with fuel economy simply requires changing out the coils, plugs, wires and fuel filter and solves most rough idle and diminished performance issues and these can be done yourself with no trouble. The design and assembly of this car is well done with a place for everything in the engine compartment and adequate space that makes it easier to dig in and repair things - for instance, I can replace the plug wires without much trouble. This is my fourth Subaru and so far my favorite.

Pros: Great handling, well powered for the average driver with a little pep when you need it on the highway or mountain switchbacks in snow.

Cons: Can't find the fuel filter.

Wrx Lite — Great commuter. Great Slow Car to Drive Fast. Has some of the great elements of the WRX, w/o the boy racer stigma. Great small car for city driving. Could use more power and better breaks and Ipod Connectivity. Maintenance could be better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, great seats, great in the snow

Cons: Speed

Its Perfect For Me — Slow, squeaky, looks faster than it is, cheap to own until something goes wrong, but I love it and its a great New England commuter. Wish it was a little faster and had less body roll, but it fit the bill.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Everything

Very Satisfactory — Performance - Handles great in the corners, Acceleration is good could use more power especially on the hills, good braking. Build Quality - is good had few none regular repairs done, rather then that all good Appearance - Love her body style, id say personally that is my favorite yr. Interior is really nice too, simple and to the point. Fun Facts - For now its all stock, so definitely can be improved with some after market or WRX parts. Love taking her through the canyons, i definitely enjoy driving it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mostly everyth!

Cons: Needs more aftermarket parts.

Get One! — first thing swapped 2.5RS for a 2006 2.5 WRX motor, dual overhead cam, and of course, turbo. stainless steel headers, cat delete uppipe, cat delete 3 inch downpipe and exhaust pipe, grimmspeed electronic boost contrller, oversized stainless steel/aluminum top mount intercooler, tgv delete, 2 10" alpline subs powered by a 1200 watt amp. this car is amazing! if you've never driven a subaru you dont know what fun is! the symetrical all wheel drive grips the road at any speed. light weight build and 4 cyl boxer engine make for a sporty sedan that will blow your mind! parts are usually overpriced and hard to get.

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

Pros: its a subaru! duh!

Cons: if you dont like performance, reliability, and affordability, this is not for you

I Love My 2.5 Rs — I Love the style of the car. I love how people always say "how many pounds of boost you running?" But even without a turbo the car is very impressive. I think the cars are very well put together compared to some cars I have owned in the past. I owned two Subarus and I would definally buy another one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the power without the turbo lag. The powers always on.

Cons: The damn ABS. I cant have any fun in the snow with it.

My Car Rocks! — This car is so much fun to drive, gas mileage kinda sucks. Black paint and black leather interior, dark black tint...imagine how sweet it looks! Excellent condition no repairs needed. the only thing I would say that needs changing is SPEED!

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

Pros: Handeling

Cons: Needs more speed!

Suby — exhaust sounds sweet and awd is great for off roading. fun to drive in the snow beast in mud and jumps from pavement to dirt like a champ. most of it has to do with the driver but we wont go there.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: all wheel drive

Cons: not turbo
