    Sti - It's What Will Have You For Dinner. —

    AWD is a beautiful thing, especially when it moves a lightweight car with a lot of positive driver feedback. The STI really does it all. It accelerates at a cheek-tearing rate; handles with sublime control - the car is designed to drift and lets you know exactly when and how it's doing it; stops on a dime - though I think the ABS sensor is a little too touchy and for serious driving might need to be turned off; and it looks sexy if you can get over the park bench of a spoiler on the rear, which actually grew on me dramatically though it provides almost zero down force/functionality. The overall 5-star rating is there because this is a well-built car with a superb drivetrain, which negates the fact that the ABS is touchy and the ride is about as comfortable and quiet as riding in a Sherman tank. This car was not built to be comfortable, daily-driving amenities limited to cruise-control and a 6-disc changer. What it was built to do is go freaking fast and control in a 4-wheel drift like its champion older brother in the world's rally scene. Though I rarely break traction, the straight-line fun still makes me grin every time I drive it. Go ahead, pull up next to me at a light and see what happens. AWD sees to it I have traction and my close-ratio gearbox will pull away like you're standing still.

    Pros: Amazing acceleration and control

    Cons: Touchy ABS makes the huge Brembo brakes not-so-reliable

    Awd Ftw — Amazing handling, AWD FTW. The power band is excelent, with boost coming on early in the RPM's. Handling is excelent, letting you feel what the road is doing and letting you know if you are to fast. Also a very forgiving car if you come in to hot she will let you fix the situation. Small problems ive had were spun bearing, no biggy just a 3 grand fix and some warped rotors, only about 500 bucks, and this wierd ass rattle that makes me want to shoot someone.

    Pros: great fun to drive

    Cons: expensive to own

    Sti — AWD is amazing!! The car explodes off the line with nothing held back. Subaru has yet again made another series of the STI into a monster. Sleek body lines make this car easy on the eyes. Yes it does take premium gas, but it is well worth the extra money. This car is amazingly fun!

    Pros: All Wheel Drive

    Cons: NOTHING!!

    Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti — Performance - Wonderful. The only problem is the low RPM. I got a larger RPM on a Corvette than on this thing. Build Quality - Well. It is a Rally car. What do you thing? :D Appearance - Everything is great but the rims are bad and ugly. Cost of Ownership - It doesn't need repairs very often. It need gas. TO MUCH GAS. Fun Factor - This baby can do lots of neat stuff. Donuts are fun. 4WD makes the kicking even better :)

    Pros: Fun Factor, Appearance

    Cons: The noise when you turn off the engine. You pull the keys out but the engine will work until the Turbo cools down. And oh yeah. The rims too.

    Simply The Perfect Car — ok where do i start, the acceleration is amazing just a little sluggish from about 2500rpms down but from there up it just pulls hard. braking couldn't be better for the price from a stock car. handing is its main weakness against evos stock for stock but its because its made with softer suspension for better a daily driver but still handles very well. build quality is very good subarus are known to last forever and the transmissin in this thing is a beast. it looks amazing on both outside and inside. the blue interior is crazy and the gold wheels are so unique. gas is alright its not the best but what do expect its 300hp out of 4-cyl so it still gets decent mpg for the power. and as far as fun, well it's just amazing you have to try it to see for yourself.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    Sti, — What is not to like it fast as hell, and beautiful to look at. zero to 60 in 4.8 seconds. I think it is worth every penny that I have payed so far. Corners like nothing else on the road and will kick your ass at the end of the day.

    Pros: Looks good, drives fast, corners very well, and is got a great looking interior

    Cons: Stiff suspention can make long trips hard on the back.

    2006 Subaru Wrx Sti — The Bad: A little ugly (in my opinion), bad gas mileage (read horrible), no real luxuries ie sunroof or sat nav, big rear wing sometimes obscures mirror vision and attracts teenage boy racers, ride is very harsh. The Good: It's freaking fast. In any direction. With Cobb upgraded ECU and full exhaust system it makes approx 350 hp / 380 tq with the worlds best AWD system. The sheer violence with which it can rip through a corner will leave you speechless. Wet, dry, snow, gravel.. it doesn't matter, its simply doesn't care. It was built with one purpose, and that is to go insanely fast in any environment, on any road or track you want to put under it. It does this, and still has comfy seats, 4 doors, a nice trunk, and a nice Recaro baby seat for my kiddo to ride along.

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Subaru Sti — Great performance and track car, a little bit of rattle in the cabin and road noise but i like it and a lot of room for improvement in the performance area and has a lot of aftermarket support and its a very fun car to drive and on gas mileage it depends on how u drive it.

    Pros: Great performance

    Cons: nothing

    My Old Baby Scooby — This is the most fun I have ever had on four wheels - wicked handling, great pick-up and so much fun blitzing the motorways!! Petrol was becoming costly and, with Guernsey about to scrap the motor tax and add it to the cost of fuel, I had to think about economics over excitement I'm afraid.

    Pros: Just Brilliant

    Cons: Not a lot if I'm honest.

    Good Awd — Acceleration is great for the price, braking is a little weak in track. Handling is so-so, too much body roll. Boring interior, nothing special exterior. Gas mileage is not bad when driving like a old lady, else $70 every 4 or 5 days. Fun factor 9/10, dry, wet or snow. ^.^

    Pros: acceleration, fun to drive

    Cons: body roll
