Wrx — Acceleration - vroom vroom! Super fun, but understeers in hard cornering...I need to fix that. Awesome fun to drift on dirt or in snow. Premium fuel is pricey, but so worth it. The paint could be a little more robust.

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

Pros: performance and wagon versatility

Cons: paint is soft

Mine! — performance - intake, turbo, springs, wheels/tires, main under drive pulley, throttle body, Gut, FMIC, uppipe, full turboback 3", front H brace, rear sway, rear endlinks, rear T ladder bar brace, short throw, and a reflash. Build- Great car very rugged but fun and simple to drive around town and on the track. the car can keep going even after a wreck...trust me. Appearance - inside nothing major just 2 sparcos and to sparco belts. out side...stock appearing WRX with wheels and tires. Cost of owner ship - HA! to much! but worth every penny!!!! Fun factor - got the car with 11,000 on it..now at 49,000+ with in nearly 3 years.

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

Pros: FUUUUUUN!

Cons: cops love it

Buy It! — Fun car to drive. Great acceleration,braking and handleing, for a stock car. Car has been very reliable. the exterior is nice but the interior could be better. It is decent on gas for a turboed awd car with around 24 mpg.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: FUN!

Cons: Don't

This Car Is Pretty Freaking Awesome....lol — I like pretty much everything about this car. It's got nice aggressive styling, great performance from the factory, it's easily tuneable, and maintenance is fairly cheap. With only a few modifications done by myself, this car is a blast to drive. I'll take it through the twisties whenever I can. Only problem I can think of is that the insurance is quite high, and I may get a little more attention from the cops...lol.

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

Pros: Good performance and quality for the money.

Cons: Insurance is expensive, may get more attention from cops.

Awesome Car! — I absolutely love this car. It's everything you could ever want. It's comfortable, fast, and you can drive it everyday and get 25 mpg.I would suggest buying a subaru if you want a car that is quick, reliable, fun, and need to drive it year round.

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

Pros: Fast, Fun, Great Handling!

Again: Bang Of The Buck.... There Is Nothing Like It. — Good: Bang for the buck. Fast, reliable, versatility, resale value, handling, WRC history..... and so on... Bad: Styling a bit outdated, feels and looks a little to conventional... like a Toyota or Honda. WRX stands for get out of my way... can't you hear my boxer engine growl ... no ... oh.... you're right! Since, Subaru placed a bunch of crappy silencers to make the car sound like a Toyota... so mom wouldn't be scared. Good thing its all easy to remove.... Bottom line. Priceless = Bang for the buck. Get one before they are gone forever.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Colin McRae loved it - it's all said.

Cons: If you like Fords or have not clue what Subaru is.

2006 Subaru Impreza Wrx Tr — Awesome car. Had to go back to the Subaru family. This was the first year the WRX got the 2.5L turbo motor. More low end TQ than the 2002 WRX, but about the same as far as stock HP and 1/4 mile times. Handled much like the 2002 WRX, brakes were 4 pots, seats and interior were better. Very nice car. this car also saved my life when I wrecked it. ;)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great TQ, handling, looks, sporty family car

Cons: Could use better stock rubber is my only complaint or a slight bump in power to make it a tad closer to an STi

2006 Subaru Impreza Wrx — Handling 10 out of 10, road ride 9 out of 10 (considering the suspension), easy to vandalize 8 out of 10 (it was so easy to dent and scratch, not a good body shell by any means, would I trust it in a smash....not sure). All in all an excellent car, would I have one again or go for the STI (i'd go for the STI!!)

Pros: Handling

Cons: Gas mileage

Fantastic Wrx, Best One Yet! —

Fast, fun, agile, mean, way too much torque. Very affordable when compared to competitors. None of those fancy gadgets and toys can be found here... go buy a loaded Acura TL or Mercedes if you need those distractions. This is a great vehicle for those who want to stray away from the automatics. If you are considered a "youthful" driver but need an adrenaline rush type car without high insurance rates... the WRX will work. Gas efficiency needs work. It's bad enough that you have to use 91 octane. Also, do not compare this car based on class because it is pure performance. It really is a rally car. You definitely get your money's worth. Compare it to BMW's 3 series, a Mustang, and even Audi's A4 with Quattro... you'll realize what you have. This car was at the bottom of my list, but after driving it through corners and hitting 110mph in 4th gear, it was an automatic buy. If you want a car that has that "sleeper" look, then this is it. Another buying point: this car is pretty much a sports car but your insurance rate will not spike up... performance sedan with lots of rally safety features :) The TR trim with an added spoiler is all you need. Simple and mean... but nobody knows!

Pros: Unreal torque and performance. Love the grip!!  Sub 5 second 0-60 with less than $2000 in mods.

Cons: Miles/Gallon!  Paint is paper thin and there are a fair number of little rattles inside the car. You can tell Subaru didn't focus a great deal on the interior but hey its a rally car.  Needs a turbo boost gauge stock.
