Wonderful Car. But It Can Get Annoying How Many Spoiled Rich Boys Who Wear Too Much White Own One. — Performance- Amazing. Great Power, great handling, beautiful exhaust note, very comfortable. Build Quality- Zero repairs but remember it can be hard to keep and opposed engine from burning a bit of oil later in its life due to the pistons sitting in the oil. Its common and very little. Appearance- I personally love the spoiler and hood scoop. Loved the blue interior seats and carpet. The gauges looked really good at night. Cost of Ownership- Pricey due to insurance and premium gas. Poor fuel mileage. And since its fun you tend to go through tires and brakes. You just cant help it. Fun Factor- Through the roof. Greatest AWD in my opinion for your buck. But be prepared for everyone (including the nice lady in the mini van) trying to race you at every stoplight when they see the spoiler. I call it spoileritus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its an sti need I say more?

Cons: If you have a hard time controlling your need for speed on winding roads.

Amazing Car, You Should Buy It — This car has great performance will run good for along time, this car has needed very few repairs since i bought it but i suggest checking it every year for major problems, the appearance of the car is really good but would change the skirts and the back and rear bumper, this car has afordable gas mileage and is worth the cost, this car is amazingly fun to drive especialy because it comes with a stock turbo

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

Pros: fun to drive and great performance

Cons: no cons

Best Sports Car For The Money. Hands Down. Without A Doubt. — 0-60 : 4.8sec. 60-100: 3sec. 100-0 : 112Ft. Need I say much more? It's fast accelerating, quick to stop, and has a great top end speed. I hit 152mph in 5th gear at 5600rpms. Its build is top quality, it is pleasing to the eyes, It gets great mileage, and maintenance is cheap. Best of all, it is a blast to drive. I will never own another kind of car. I can drive offroad, in the snow, in the rain, and anywhere my life takes me, with the AWD. When the turbo kicks in at around 3350rpms, there is a sudden rush, as the car lurches forward, wanting more and more speed.

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

Pros: Fast, safe, reliable, fast, quick, fast, AWD, fast... Did I mention it is fast?

Cons: Insurance cost:(, speeding tickets and NEG2 tickts will add up quickly...

Have Your Cake And Eat It To. — Can't beat the performance for the buck, accelerates hard brakes harder. The fun factor is unbelievable, but the wife doesn't think so. Oh yeah, it's not cheap to maintain. If you want to be a hooligan and drive hard expect be using a lot of clutch. Launching an AWD turbo car is death to clutches so are dead end road 180's on tarmac.

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

Pros: Controlled chaos

Cons: Tired of seeing microsoft geeks driving my whip.

Awesome, This Car Is A Masterpiece And Will Definitely Be Placed In The Cars Hall Of Fame. — I'm still doing research on the different years but this baby is definitely a winner in my book. I'm searching for one as we speak. I've seen them in action and the power these cars have are insane, especially for the price.

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

Pros: Super fast with excellent handling, bold curves solid body

Cons: Should offer a bigger turbo model as an option

It Is An Awesome Piece Of Machinery, And I Would Definetly Recomend — This car has a cunning amount of horsepower and an equal amount of torque making it more than fun put the pedal to the floor. The only thing about the build quality i have to say is it has a squeak or rattle up near the VIN plate on the dash, and the boot on the E-brake ripped. The whole car is aggressive especially with a lowering kit on it. the gas mileage isn't bad as long as you stay out of boost. This car is an absolute blast to drive, and it doesn't need to have 600hp for it to be fun.

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

Pros: Its a blast

Cons: none

2006 Subaru Impreza Sti — A blast on the tarmac, on snow, and on dirt. There really is no describing the power and handling of this car, you just have to experience it. I would recommend the car to anyone who isn't afraid to get their car dirty.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: Rattles/noise
