    Amazing car that handles awesome. Especially great for those that want a solid feel and power distribution through the corners. It is a little heavy in the MR package but worth it if you are going to use it as an everyday driver. Sound system (Rockford Fosgate) has great sound with right amount of bass straight out of the package.
    Handling Ranked 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi worse.
    "The S-AWC makes for variable power distribution to the tires through the turns. This includes changeable setting for different terrain types (snow, gravel, pavement)."

    Best Car Ever Engineered — Stock from the factory it has a weak tune. If you plug in a flash encoder, to flash the ecu, you will get an extra 20 horsepower. The turning radius is hilarious, you could pull a narrower uturn in a school bus. The reason for that is that the engineers crammed so much underneath the hood, so still a worthy sacrifice

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

    Pros: nothing takes turns like an evo. I own two of them. With just a few bolt ons and flashing the ecu you will have more power than most can handle.

    Cons: bad turning radius. it turns like a school bus.

    '08 Evo X — Ford has the Mustang, BMW has the M3, and Mitsubishi has the Evo. Pros: Power, Handling, Braking. Cons: Average fuel mileage and 93 octane required means quite pricy at the pump but can be increased by tunes and driving habits (the latter might be hard to do.)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: EVERYTHING!

    Cons: maybe the mileage but that's small.

    10 Out Of 10 — Most amazing car I've ever owned and driven! It's the ultimate affordable driver's car. Wonderful AWD system, and the confidence I gave me while I drove it. To this day I have troubles descibing the way this car mad me feel.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Can't wait to see what the XI will be like!

    Cons: It ate fuel like it was junk food.

    Great Enthusiast Vehicle To Own! — At a 43k plus sticker price it was a tough buy but you will definitely feel why once you drive it. Out of the box "race car" that can keep up with much higher priced track contenders! Much more refined than the last generations but if road noise and ride comfort is at the top of your list, then you may shy away from what this car has to offer!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling, sharp looks, head turner, accessibility of parts with easy power gains

    Cons: Passenger room, trunk room, gas mileage

    Bad Ass — Straight from factory this thing is made for fun! Put another 10k into it, your side by side with a GTR R35 around the track! Handeling is like nothing I have ever driven Gas Mileage is as expected Not the easiest thing to wok on, but fun learning

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

    Pros: Endless fun

    Cons: not sure yet

    Great Performance. Poor Luxury. Pay The Extra And Get The Mr Or Get An Sti — Performance- The performance really was amazing. Perfect Handling, Great pick up. Lots of power. Very responsive. Great feel through the steering wheel. But if you got the 5 speed manual I hope you LOVE high RPMs on the highway or freeway. If you get a performance exhaust make sure it comes with ear plugs for these drives. Also when you first drive it, if you aren't truely use to cars like this without rev matching, be ready for the smell of clutch and the bounce of a dropped clutch pedal. Build quality- Very solid. Zero problems minus a burnt up O2 sensor (my own fault). And the tires last only about 12,000 miles before they start cupping and coming apart. Soft compound good for handling though. Appearance- The exterior was really amazing. I loved that it looked basic out of the corner of your eye, but when you notice the sporty hood and the raised spoiler you know there is something special about this car. The interior was the single cheapest and poorest quality interior I have ever been in. Everything looked and felt like cheap plastic. The Recaro Racing seats would come apart in places. ZERO literally ZERO basic luxuries for the base model which is absurd for a $34,000 car. Cost of Ownership- COSTLY. Poor gas mileage and the OEM Yokohamas dont last long. Fun Factor- Very Very fun on winding roads. It will surprise you how far you can push it. If you aren't used to power this car is quite the treat.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power and makes turns a blast

    Cons: Forget about luxuries on the base model and make sure you have a decent bank account. Also try to avoid the 5 speed. Its Annoying.

    Just Pure Awsomness — Just an exceptional piece of machinery. It's just the perfect mix of size power and precision. Love zooming by porches. Racing type interior, outside midnight black. it needs no repairs, in perfect condition. As for gas, isn't it always expensive these days anyways...

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

    Pros: size and speed

    Cons: getting profiled

    Does Everything And Does It Well. — Love everything about it, handles wonderful, has power to spare, easy to drive around town and at speed. Gas mileage could be better but will increase with a tune. No other car for the price range has the speed, features, and technology wrapped up in this attractive of a package. Great in snow and for hauling everyday stuff. Would definitely purchase again and again.

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

    Pros: Just under a second slower around a track than some supercars.

    Cons: stock tune is fairly terrible but an easy fix
