    The Best Acr Ever — It has all wheel drive so it glides thought the biggest snow drifts. With heated seat and wipes the winter drives aren't so bad. It also goes really fast and look really really cool. It the best car that I ever had.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: All wheel drive

    Cons: nothing

    Cool Car With Excellent Mpg!!! — It could use a little more power but other than that I love this car. The MPG is excellent. You gotta get the stick though, its no fun with out it. And need to get a turbo on it with short throw shifter and get the chip and exhaust overhauled.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cool Looks!!

    Cons: Needs more power

    Best In Its Class For Only 18,000 — Performance- For base model it has all the same characteristics as the WRX minus the turbo, Handling is no joke, the AWD with center LSD and all around independent suspension makes for the best handling car in its class. Build Quality- The car is great all around as long as you keep up on your scheduled maintenance. Appearance- The interior is what sold me on this car vs the older model 2007, everything that used to be extra cost is standard now. exterior styling looks amazing with the emphasis on the headlights and tail lights. Cost- Great gas mileage and better than the WRX for MPG Fun- Once again the AWD and suspension make for the funnest car to drive in its class.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: AWD, 2.5L Boxer Engine, Good MPG

    Cons: Engine noise

    Great Car Vs Value — * Performance - acceleration is not bad, braking is great, handling is quite good but under steers a bit * Build Quality - didn't need repairs, squeaks/rattles a bit in the interiors * Appearance - both interior and exterior styling are good * Fun Factor - just a normall car since it's a 1.5L

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very stable at high speeds

    Cons: Gas consumption

    Excelent Alround Car — The sport is not particular fast, however it does handel like a dream, not even my audi S6 cornered like the Impreza does. I am hoping to get my hands on the wrx later in the year. more power = more fun

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: the handeling

    Cons: lack of power

    Great Car For Daily Errands. — Speed; Fast acceleration; Low center of gravity; Great handling. Braking is very fast and responsive. Some things make noise in the car; Avg 20+ Mpg. Cloth interior, could be better if it had optional leather seats. Frequent oil changes would do good for the car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's fast ! And fuel injected

    Cons: Style, not so much on the optomistic side

    A Boring Review — Brilliant car, only the 2.5l NA engine though... but still good....(someone please buy me a wrx ;) only downfall of this car is the bloody traction control that you have to turn off every time you enter the car otherwise ....well you get no fun out of it

    Pros: awd ftw

    Cons: the 2.5L NA engine

    Subaru Imprezza '08 — This is my second car and for the most part I'm pleased. I got it in manual which is my personal choice despite being in Los Angeles though I don't know that I like shifting as much as I did in my old Saturn sports car. I love the all wheel drive feature as it really cuts down on the spinning tires which I think happened twice in the year I have owned it. I also like having a back seat since it just so much more convenient. If I had it do do over again I might have opted for the hatch back even though I have never been a fan. My biggest problem is that if I turn the wipers on I feel them moving in the pedals.

    Pros: All wheel Drive

    Cons: Vibration in pedals when wipers move
