Fun, Dependable Commuter For Wintry Climates. — Great commuter car. Buy a entry level sedan or hatchback and put in a new stereo and speakers if you like music. The value of this car cannot be matched. Sales and service staff at my local dealership have always been helpful and friendly.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great commuter car, especially in winter climates. Subaru has made this a very affordable all wheel drive car that handles exceptionally well. Very reliable with low maintenance costs.

Cons: Plastic interior, cheap stereo and speakers. These are small negatives, considering the Pros listed above. They have put the money into the drivetrain and handling.

All Around Perfect For Weather And Cargo. — I liked how comfortable I was taking this car off road to either go fishing or up in the mountains to go skiing. I loved the fact that I never once had any mechanical problems with it for the 25K miles I have driven it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Absolutely wonderful vehicle for Colorado.  The way it handles in the snow is amazing.  I've never had to take it for maintenance and I have the maintenance history to prove it!

Cons: With the new additions to the family, I need more room, and a little more power!

A Spectacular Choice For A First "grown Up" Car. Neither A Beater, Or A Fancy Statement, — The vehicle is peppy and fun to drive, is extremely dependable, is the safest thing I have ever driven in bad conditions, and has cost me very little to maintain. It makes me happy every time I get inside, and it looks up-scale enough to generate many complements when people ride in it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking, extremely safe, fun to drive, and practical.

Cons: nothing. could use more power.

Fastastic Car For Its Price Range — Fastastic Car Handles like a charm, fun to drive performs well, the acceleration is great not as fun as a WRX but still great looks good not as aggressive look like as the WRX or STI, im not a huge fan on the two tone paint the gas milage is not bad on average i get 27mpg and 125 when i push it, and 30mpg when im easy on it. great car to drive even more fun in a grass field or a parking lot full of snow

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

Pros: fastastic car for its price range

Cons: lack of turbo

Pretty Sweet Lil' Ride Peeps!!! — Not the blistering speed of an STI...but how fun is the all wheel drive!!! Oh...and bout 30 to the gallon is a plus also. Hoping in the next several months to upgrade suspension and brake packages. Worth a try on some local rally tracks if I can talk the wifie into it at that point.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: AWD and apperance.

Cons: Nothing yet.

I enjoy driving this car. I test drove the Mazda 3 and chose the the Impreza because it had more comfortable back seating. Read More

The only thing missing on the Limited model is a power passenger seat. Everything else is great- ride, handling, gas mileage, interior room. Read More

My first impression is that all trims of the imprezas are slow. I test drove the base models all the way up to the limited models. An impreza might not be such a good choice in a critical driving situ... Read More

The hatchback is a great car for a teenage driver. It has the roominess of a small SUV without the rollover risk, and all wheel drive is standard. Read More
