Good Looking, I Constantly Get Looks On The Road. — I love the performance even though i wish I had the STi WRX version lol. But otherwise it looks great and I always get complements on it. The steering is not as responsive as the other car I have drove in the past. Power is good, has lots of power for a little car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth Ride and Fun

Cons: Steering is not very good

Peppy Transportation Which Is Reliable And Affordable — Good brakes, same 2.5 engine they have been using for years ā€“ decent gas millage ā€“ 28 on the highway 20 around town. The 2.5 has more power than cars for the same money (civic 130 hp, corolla, 130 hp, scion TC 160 HP) All wheel drive is nice ā€“ stock tires suck Since it is AWD the car does understeer when pushed

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable, affordable, all wheel drive, 30 more HP then other cars for the same price

Cons: the grill is ugly

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 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

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
