    Should Never Own Anything Besides A Subaru — all you can ask from a car and more, room, power, handling, looks, sound... the over all feel of the vehicle is exquisite, when looking for a fun to drive car with both power and practicality, this surpasses those standards by far.

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

    Pros: amazing driving experience

    Cons: avoid because its better than what you drive

    Best Car For Your Money! — Fast and fun to drive! Has a gt35r, coilovers, cage, slotted rotors, hawk pads, ss lines, rota 17x9 with a 24mm offset, jdm front lip, 816cc inj, 255 fuel pump, fmic. Fun car to drive. Next I will be building the motor in it so I can push the turbo even more on it and hit the 500whp I want.

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

    Pros: Turbo and all wheel drive!

    Cons: Nothing

    The Car Is Amazing In Every Way. — The car is so fun to drive. I've had it since july of '10 and am in love. When you push the noisy pedal above 3k the thing takes off like a rocket. below 3k it feels like a roller coaster as you slowly creep up to the big drop. You know whats about to happen and you just wait in excitement the the turbo spools and your off. its the best feeling. the 2.5 liters give you plenty of low end out of boost grunt for daily driving as well. Fuel economy is okay. Its not the best but its to be expected of a car like this. I managed 25 mpg on the highway. The hardest part is keeping your foot out of it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power and control

    Cons: minor interior rattles. Its not enough to rule out buying one though.

    Bad Ass Car — Does 13 seconds in the quarter mile, has stock brembo brakes, AWD helps it through the curves. She's just now needing a new clutch after multiple launches at the drag strip and 70,000 miles on the stock one. Stock outside exept for the Tein lowering springs, interior has Defi gauge pod. Gas mileage sucks cuz I put a Walbro fuel pump in it along with other engine mods that make it faster but suck down gas. Very fun car to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's fast

    Cons: None

    Quick — The STI is a monster in the dirt, accelerating ferociously and providing the kind of unfiltered feedback you need to go fast. Its ability to accelerate around a turn is just plain scary. Handles like it is on rails and low maintenance costs.

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

    Pros: For use on and off road

    Cons: Needs new tires!!!

    300hp Family Car — You need not say more, its an STi! 300hp four door family car with enough room in the trunk to fit a stroller and some detail wax. Makes some noise from the suspension but what do you expect from a sports car? This thing is amazing to drive, good gas milage, enough room,did I mention it was pretty quick? 4.7 0-60 time.

    Pros: handels great

    Cons: Its fast

    Great Value — I love everything about this car expecially for our climate here in North Idaho...great in the snow. Not the best car for smooth ride due to the amazing suspension but that's why I like it. If you can only have one car and want something versitile the STI is it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: From the grocery store to the race track!

    Cons: It isn't a smooth, comfy ride if you want cushy but who cares

    See Review. — Great car, great fun! Uses a lot of gas, but that is probably known to the car freaks who want to buy this car. Awesome performace, handling, quality, and the shortshifted gearbox is similar to a rally car. A bit noisy, a bit typical japanese"plastic" interior, but definately recommended to any car performance freak out there!!

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

    Pros: See review.

    Cons: A bit expensive...
