Bad A$$ — I love the performance blended w/ practicality. It has never had any major problems and provides an economical (~25mpg) performance vehicle for any form of driving, vice off road. All-wheel drive is clutch in wet/snowy conditions. She always has a smile on her face:)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Practical.

Cons: Low clearance.

Happy Owner — It's a Subaru. All wheel drive. Roof rack, hatchback, manual transmission. Nice paint, nice trim. Great handling. Great acceleration and braking. Looks like a family car, drives like a sports car. Hope the car holds up for may years ahead.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sporty 5-spd manual, turbo; hatchback storage; nice interior

Cons: Gas mileage only mid 20's

I Love This Car. — Been driving this car for over four years now. It's been a lot of fun, and it has been very practical for me. I'm getting a little older now and I think I might like something a little more comfortable, but otherwise no complaints. BTW, I'm 6'3" and this car fits me very well, both in leg and headroom.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling, lots of go power. A blast to drive

Cons: Interior is a little spartan. Just the basics, but what is there is done well.

Can't Really Find Anything I Dislike About The Car, Maybe The Keypad To Start It, Would Be The Only — I love this car, handles better on the highway than around town, is fast, handles well in all weather conditions, corners well, put 18 inch wheels on it, and then put the wrx rims on the Forester, it is a lot of fun to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It gets used as an everyday car

Cons: Around town it rides a bit like a go cart

The One And Only Wrx Plus — I am a big Subaru fan. Especially the Legacy 3.0R Spec.B and the WRX and STI versions are ver tasty! I drove this 2006 brand new Scooby WRX 2,5 turbo during a test drive. What immediately disappointed me was the absence of any engine sound. A Subaru boxer should bark at you every time you touch the loud pedal. Not in this one. Then there was the ride. Subaru has been renowned for its brilliant filtering of bumps due to its rallye-bred suspensions. Not in this one. I found it to be jumpy and uncomfortable on high-frequency bumps. A shame, because I was really going to buy one.

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

Pros: Boxerturbo, power/performance, build quality.

Cons: Fuel consumption. Average ride quality. Lack of engine sound.

Greatest Car Ever — i love my subaru wrx. when i got it it was on awsome shape and still is. even so i did some upgrades on it still a great car for daily driving and specially in the snow. cost of ownership well is not that bad compare to other cars that i had. is a turbo car so mandatory i have to run 93 octane and at $3 a gallon for me is ok. i get anywere betwen 18-20 mpg city driving and i have seen 27-28 hyways. it have almost 90k miles on it and so far i havent replace anything other that regular tune ups. as for stock brakes and suspension i cant say anything because when i got it that the first thing i replace. my main thing with the car is that is a daily driver and autox car. for insurance i thought i would pay alot for it but i pay less that 600 every 6 month for full coverage for insurance.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun to drive, good dalily driver / autox

Cons: premium gas
