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.

Awesome If You Dont Want More Hp Then Stock Or Dont Mind Dropping 4k On Ur Tranny. — Cant go wrong with a boxter engine. But the tranny could be a little beefer since i destroyed 2nd gear all ready. LB has the pics. 3k later i need a new axle gotta love job security for mechanics. The turn angles i can take make my car amazing to drive.

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

Pros: Handling, Engine sounds awesome.

Cons: Dont be upset when the tranny blows

Wrx — great low end torque, good acceleration from stock turbo, interior is very nice for stock and built for race- styled comfort, appearance is unique, gas mileage is good and maintenance is low until you start modifying it, very fun to drive this all wheel drive turbo vehicle.

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

Pros: AWD / TURBO / LOOKS

Cons: Costly maintenance once heavily modified

If You Can Find One Buy It. Make Sure It's An '05 To '07 And Concentrate On Beefing Up That Tranny — I really miss this car. I should have kept it. There was nothing wrong with it except for the transmission and I should have just replaced it. This car took anything you threw at it and it would take even more with a swapped six speed or PPG gears. This car was my favorite out of all the cars I've owned and if I could get mine back I would take it in a heartbeat.

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

Pros: Car has a lot of potential for what ever you use it for whether it would be track, rally, or just getting your groceries. It looked great, it drove great, it got excellent gas mileage

Cons: Transmission

A Great All-round Performance Car At A Bargain Price! — This car is a real bargain at half the price of an STi (at least where I live), its performance is very much in the same league when fitted with PPP - Prodrive Performance Package which added another 40hp or so to the basic 220hp stock engine. Plenty of torque is available from 2,500rpm. If driven sensibly, it will return respectable mileage. Suspension needs work as OEM dampers can be bouncy on many occasions, but fear not as plenty of aftermarket parts are available.

Pros: Exceptional power and fuel economy.

Cons: Rally-car look isn't for everyone.  Weak brakes.

Great Performance For The Money And Awd Is Icing On The Cake. — Performance of this car is amazing with a few simple mods. Build quality is very good but the light weight of all the parts and the minimal noise reduction leads to some fun rattles. Although most won't agree i love how the car looks... especially after a front lip and a slight drop. Gas mileage is good considering the performance and AWD of the car. I would consider this car on the lever of a Lotus in the fun to drive factor (after some light modding) because of how light and responsive they are. The car is extremely "raw".

Pros: Performance, modding capabiltiy, "rawness" of the car (no bells and whistles just business)

Cons: Not the greatest looking car to many.
