05 Subaru Impreza Wrx Club Spec 8 — I bought the car new. Is a very willing performer in most conditions, though can be a bit of a princess when it comes to different brands of fuel or cold weather. If you enjoy driving and like to have some fun but need a car that is still easy to drive then there is not much out there that will beat this in its original condition. And it looks good too. Can be pricey to run and maintain.

Pros: Performance, handling, styling

Cons: Running costs especially servicing, tyres and insurance

2005 Subaru Wrx — Fast but turbo lag sucks, needs better downpipe and CPU flash. Stock Shifter a bit notchy. Factory wheels and tires a joke for this car, this is why I dont give it amazing for performance. AWD performance is unbeatable in all conditions. Interior is nice. Fuel exonomy is excellent if you stay off the turbo...Good luck with that!! Still an overall excellent car thats designed from the ground up to perform. It's just that Subaru detunes the engine -20hp for the states and adds stock Legacy wheels and tires to keep costs down. This car takes very well to upgrades however.

Pros: Extremely fun to drive, tough unibody design, Performance AWD car for under 30k!!

Cons: Stock wheels are a joke for this car.

Ugly And Gorgeous At The Same Time... And It Will Kick Your Butt While You Look At It. — Subaru certainly doesn't have a gift when it comes to designing attractive cars, but there's something about the Impreza in the WRX form. It's like a bulldog. Ugly, but cute at the same time. This car is the ultimate daily driver, all wheel drive, and it can move if you want it to.

Pros: AWD, enough get up and go for a daily driver.

Cons: Premium gas, could be faster!

Our Baby-beast — Love this car. This used to be my car (husband's now) and I had too many close-calls with this one, my foot just wants to go down.

Pros: Small, quick, nicely designed and very reliable.  

Cons: Better on gas???  I know, I'm asking too much for a turbo, but the mileage might be OUR DRIVING problem :-)

I Love My Wrx — I would say all in all the vehicle is an excellent sports car. Its light, its quick, and its fun. Fun! For the price you can't go wrong either. Its my first import and I've been hooked. When you sit down it gives the impression it wants to just hug you while you take it out for a spin. Its economical enough and comfortable enough to daily drive. Everything seems where it should be. Has been very reliable to me, top of radiator finally blew after 98k miles. Its a great beginner sports car, and great to build up. When you run it through its paces you really begin to notice the potential of the car. It seems if it has a learning curve, you can do so much with it once you get the feel. Granted its a sedan, it isn't a family car. For the price, its a steal.

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

Pros: Lightweight.
Handles great.
Fast.
Fun!
Comfortable for a sports car.
Easy to modify.
I personally get 23mpg, so economical.

Cons: Little brakes, but functional.
Little leg room in back.
