Great Sporty Wagon — Great car, perfect for snow, looks great, lots of cargo room. Hard to find these with an automatic, which makes life easier when driving in heavy traffic. I like this body style better than the new ones, so get one and save a lot of $.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of room, great in the snow, nice having the turbo to pass cars on the highway

Cons: Terrible gas mileage for a small car, and you have to use Hi-Test gas. Turbo lag when starting from dead stop.

You Looking For All Year Fun,wet ,snow And Dry. Wrx Or Sti Is #1 — Best Bang for the Buck. You can Make a WRX as Fast as a WRX STi with Less Than $1000 It has been proven time and time again to have great fitment, performance, and reliability, for the price. A must have a Cobb AP.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love my WRX . its fast, It hooks the road wet or dry. I've owned a 300zx tt , starion ESI-R and when i was in high school I had a  340 Cuda. My WRX is the best all around car for Fri and Saturday nite fun. Then come Monday back to work I have fun geting there too. Its my Big Boy Toy. If I could I would park it in my Man room.

Cons: I wish it had a 6 speed but, not the STi 6 speed. The gear in the STi are to short in the RPM to MPH. Subaru made the flywheel to heavy. This make's the 2.0 lag. The shock rims do not thing for the looks too.

'05 Wrx — I'd but this car again. It take a beating and keeps on going. This car has seen more of American than most people ever will. Its quick and fun to drive from the get-go and if you are into modifying yur car, there are parts literally EVERYWHERE for it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast and AWD

Cons: I always want more power. 400whp just isn't enough.

Great Car For A Right Price — This Subaru doesn't have any problems, except a little cosmetic touch ups.This Exterior Touch ups Don't affect the performance and handling. But I'm getting them fixed so it should be perfect for the day of sale. This car is Perfect for the Winter Thanks to the Subaru 4WD system.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Looking, Reliable, No Problems.

Cons: Its has a small dent on a left panel

Try It You Might Like It — As my car had done 60k plus miles when i bought it I knew i might to spend a few quid on it but was pleasently surprised how little i have spent in the last year even though i have done 13k in a little over 12 months, just wish fuel was a little cheaper! overall it handle like it's on rails and sounds great, but i would say that as this know my forth one in about 9 years lol

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

Pros: love everything except fuel economy

Cons: don't hate anything about it, it make's me grin everytime

Buy It! — Awesome ride at a decent price. Look at the others then come back to this one. Do they have AWD? Turbo? Cheaper? You can't beat this thing in the snow, on the track, on the beach, anywhere. Just get one!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fast, fast, fast

Cons: premium fuel

Overall:

Buy One — Performance - GOOD Build quality - Mechanically soild but some small rattles. Appearance - I like it but then I'm a sports wagon/estate, hatchback lover. Cost of Ownership - not too bad, until you start buying mods. Fun factor - come on 280HP mountain roads less than 1 hour away, Interstates/Motorways that are straight for miles, and snow to play with in winter :)

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

Pros: Fun utility

Cons: Tickets

Overall:

Fun, Safe, Speedy, Reliabile Car, That Doesn't Break The Wallet. — Performance - Quick car, but lacks torque in low RPMs because of turbo lag. Out handles anything of similar value on the road. Build Quality - Built like a tank. I pulled an F-250 out of the mud with this car. Appearance - Takes a while to warm up to the look of this car. Its a cop magnet tho. Functional hood scoop and a spoiler don't help. Cost of Ownership - 91 Octane only but its worth it. Its really not much more than a good Accura to own. Fun Factor - This car feels like its on rail road tracks. You can take it off road. If there's lots of pot holes and un-even surface on your road you'll be able to drive faster on it than say... a super car. Super fun.

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

Pros: AWD, built like a tank, super fun to drive.

Cons: Cop magnet, not the best looking car, only takes 91 OCT.
