    Just Awesome! — Love it. I can put it through hell and it'll keep asking for more. Whole day of rally racing, and the car still went. So much fun to drive during all the seasons of the year. Glad I have it.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive.

    Cons: N/A

    The Ugly One — Last WRX sedan available at Subaru before the new even uglier hatch. Drove both and the suspension/ handling way better on the sedan than the new hatch. This car feels bulletproof and after having owned 4 Subaru's I know that it is. Planning on keeping this one for a few years to come... Fitted a Prodrive exhaust system and the very quiet exhaust note has changed to that very familiar lumpy burble I love so much. Great car

    Pros: Great motor, handling, sound, agressive looks.

    Cons: Brakes need upgrading, boy racer scoops and wing, really bad fuel consumption and pathetic standard soundsystem.

    2008 Dream Machine, New Wrx Body Style — The engine has been amped up to the 2.5 L, much like the previous year's STi. Still a 5 spd transmission, but a dream to drive. The body style reminds me of a Honda... but it's still nice to look at. Also, the inside is a lot more roomy - which also takes away from trunk space (you can put down the back seats though). Surprisingly, these are going for around the same price as the 04-05 STi's.

    Pros: more room, better engines, stiff suspension, bigger rims, average mpg display, tpms display, get up and gooo!

    Cons: doesn't look like a subaru to me

    I'm Just A Subaru Fan. — This is a great base to start with if you like to play with cars. The only thing I wish is that it had a better stock suspension. Other than that, the power is good, as is the acceleration. The premium package has some nice features such as a nav system and a very nice sound system. Overall, I would say that this is a fun car to drive. I can't wait for the winter, when I can really make use of the AWD.

    Pros: This is a nice base for a project car.  I like the power coupled with the AWD.

    Cons: The paint seems to lose its' luster very quickly.  The suspension could be a little tighter.

    General Review — Could use a little more turbo oomph like the older WRXs. Interior plastics scratch quite easily, but other than that, the WRX is a solid car. After lowering it, I have to worry about speed bumps and snow. But still goes where you want it to go. Best car I ever owned.

    Pros: balanced, all around rally rocket

    Cons: too refined and lacks the older model's "screw you" attitude

    Smooth As Silk.. — This car is so SMOOTH! I love driving it, whenever I get the chance. Its acceleration is flawless, and gives you quite a rush. Anyone looking for a fun car to own, this is definitely one to consider! I generally prefer little two door cars, but this is still sporty, but gives you some room to move, and take friends with you!

    Pros: Very nice ride, nice handling, amazing breaks (almost went through the windshield), great corning due to the all wheel drive feature, and exhilarating acceleration!

    Cons: Little to big for my liking, I am into very little cars, but I wouldn't hate owning one of these beauties.

    My Car — performance could be better off the lot, quality is great it is to quiet though. It has a stylish appearance, and the cost to own isn't that much, but it is turbocharged. Fun factor is a 10 hands down. I would tell someone to buy it. But not the same color

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    Wrx 2008 — This car is one of my favotite; It got a lot of power a good handling and a little bit more classy than the previus versions of the WRX. At around 34 K for a sedan model, the ''Power VS COST ratio'' is one of the best on the market !!! Of corse the AWD system bring the WRX to a hole new level compare to most of the cars in the same category. Final Word; WOO HOO !!!

    Pros: Power and handling

    Cons: Space ... DUH !!! it's a sport car !!!

    Wrx Rocks — Best economy sports car on the market today! Everything about it is perfect. The camaraderie with WRX owners is a great enthusiast's perk and a sign of a well made car that many can enjoy.

    Pros: Great speed inexpensive pricetag

    Cons: no sunroof?

    Amazing Car- Better Than The Sti- Cheaper Insurance And No Dumb Spoiler — Bought this car in October and I never want to stop driving it. 2.5 turbocharged engine with a 5 speed short throw shifter. Bosst kicks in at about 2,500 to 2,800 and it puts out 12lbs stock! 225 HP 226 TQ from a 2.5L engine and im averaging 23 MPG even when I go out racing on the weekends. Handles great thru the canyons. Fun to drive in the snow, rain, dirt, mud anything really, the all wheel drive makes it all possible, just dont get cocky and forget you dont have tons of ground clearence and try to go off roading.They made this engine a lot more efficent and powerful than the previous engines, widened the wheel base and tucked the ass in so its not hanging out so far as on older styles

    Pros: hell everything about this car is a pro- I have no complaints at all

    Cons: Again nothing is a con with this car in my opinion
