    I Hated My Wrx — Noisy, noisy, noisy... This car is heavy and slow from the box. With all this weight I'd expect it to be a hell of a lot more quiet inside. After 800 miles I had rattles from the dash, covered under warranty, only to rattle again. I found that little boys and teenagers loved the car, whilst my peer group frowned and acted like I was a juvenile.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: lots of aftermarket parts if you want to waste your money.

    Cons: noise, build quality

    Pure Awesomeness — Great car overall, quick on take-offs and braking, takes corners like a champ, shrugs off winters like it's 4WD. Built strong, no rattles, Out of the box racer. Can get expensive on gas, depending on how you drive. Takes care of you if you take care of it.

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

    Pros: Pure Awesomeness

    Cons: If you don't want a quality car that can get groceries and go rallying without changing anything.  or if you don't like 4doors

    This Is An Awesome Car, It's Always Fun To Drive — I hate nuthin. Love everything. It's a subaru what's there to hate? It's fast off the line. Braking and handling are a dream. The gas mileage is pretty damn good. It's probably the most fun car I have ever driven.

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

    Pros: Smooth shifts, Turbo, I burn Vette's

    Cons: Sticky Clutch at times.

    Suby! — Instant braking system, very quick accelration, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. Amazing sport like exterior, immaculate interior. Gas mileage is 19mpg, not an every day car. The subaru is the most fun car I have ever driven though, so quick and easy to handle. Love it !

    Pros: gorgeous,fast, and fun

    I Hope Nobody Else Buys One So I Will Be On Of The Few Who Own It. — Love the current ride, wanted one for years, got it, now just waiting on the motor to blow so I can build a 550 whp version of it and really get the groceries in a hurry. The thing rides a little rough and does not get quite as good of gas mileage as the previous car but it is the most fun in a daily driver I have ever had.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: Speeding tickets

    Dream Come True... — This car has been a dream to own, literally. I put a pic of this car on my wall when it was first brought over to the US and wanted one since before that. The performance is unbelievable. It handles great, and the DCCD is a awesome feature. With 300/300 power at the crank it's fast from factory with a stong 6-speed tranny. Stock stereo sucks, but that doesn't really matter. The '05 has the best looks in my opinion, just needs a few exterior mods to look ideal (like the rear vane and rear diffuser of the '06-'07 and the JDM side spats). Gas mileage is not that bad since its only a 2.5L 4 banger (I have averaged about 21 mpg since I got the car in January).

    Pros: Fast and fun

    Cons: gas mileage

    05 Sti Review — Performance - above avergae for the price range Build Quality - I beat on it and nothing that I have not broken while upgrading has goe wrong with it, so I would say it is pretty damn good. Appearance - Exterior (average-u gotta like hood scoops and large wings) Interior (it is an economy car. It is leaps and bounds above the 03 wrx I had) Cost of ownership- Higher than most in price range when parts wear out. But level of performance is also above average, so it is not unexpected. I have been of the opinion to upgrade anything that needs replacement. Fun Factor - 10 out of 10

    Pros: 2.5 turbo, 6 speed, front and rear diffs...etc

    Cons: Seats, styling

    Soooobaroooo! — One of my best bud's cars. I've yet to "drive" it, just drive around town and on the freeway, so no track or mountain driving time yet. That said, it's fast enough to make me laugh demonically, and it handles very well. it's very well made, and I've yet to find a category in which I'd rather have a Mitsubishi Evo over a WRX STi. The flat four sounds awesome. For practicality and "fun", I rate this as one of the top cars I've ever worked with.

    Pros: Fun, safe, fast!

    Cons: Is not free/very cheap

    Natural High In Life — it is a 4 cyclinder on steroids its amazing they packed 300 horse power into the engine power everywhere and when u want it the awd system keeps the wheels planted to the asphault great reputation for a car hard to walk away from it everytime i park it i loveeee it

    Pros: power, build quality, its meannnn stance, speaks for itself, and amazing racing background and roots

    Cons: the need for speed i have now, lead foot haha
