    A Hell Of A Ride! — I've had this car for nearly seven years and it has been great. The power and performance is top-notch for a sub $34,000 car. This car is not only fast and fun to drive, it is reliable and a blast in the snow. For such a small car this thing can really handle it's own in the snow. A+ car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: AWD with great performance and handling

    Cons: It's a rough ride due to the sport suspension but overall there are no cons

    Fun, Quick, And Reliable — This car compared to my WRX, which is all stock, is a big jump in power and handling with all the added upgrades. It takes real well to power modifications if it is done correctly. This car has a 0-60 in less than 5 seconds, and can take corners like it is on rails. Very fun car to drive and Safe.

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

    Pros: As this being the STI model it is the ultimate family sedan. Excellent handling and extremely fun power.

    Cons: Only con is back seat is a little small and the back seat doesn't have a pass through.

    Great Overall Piece Of Machinery — The one thing i have loved about this car is that it has been extremely reliable. Next I would say the performance right out of the chute is awesome. Great response from the turbo and engine and a nice power band. The handling on it has been fantastic despite the under steer, and it is even great in the snow...if you get rid of the summer tires that come from the factory. Have love this car for every day of the six years of ownership.

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

    Pros: Great throttle response, excellent braking, and handles like its on rails.

    Cons: From a month after I drove off the lot there has been an unresolved rattle in the dash by the drivers A-pillar.  There is a bit of under steer.

    I Love It — Performance - acceleration SUPERB, braking GREAT, handling GREAT Build Quality - has it needed repairs? squeaks/rattles ITS ROCK SOLID Appearance - both interior and exterior styling: This was the last ever good looking Impeza, I hope the current Impreza dies and they hire a more competent one for the next model. Cost of Ownership - gas mileage, maintenance, again treat the car well and it will treat you the same. Fun Factor - is this car fun to drive? THE SPEEEEEED!

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

    Pros: Just sexy

    Cons: I hate that this was the last good looking Impreza

    Best Of The Best — Best car i've ever owned. I would keep her for another decade and still feel special in it. One of the few cars made for fun. Performance - More than enough for a suitable street car. Build Quality - A Japanese car built in Japan. Nuff said. Appearance - Look almost as good as the 2006 Prodrive S12 Cost of Ownership - Gas $$$ Oil $$$ other $ Fun Factor - No better. Not even bikes.

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

    Pros: All.

    Cons: Have to drive the speed limit.

    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...
