2009 Subaru Impreza 2.5iReview

Bottom Line, Subaru's Are The Way To Go! — It has enough get up to where the gas mileage is decent, however I would prefer a it to be faster like the WRX. The turning is amazing and I love the handling all together! It feels safe and is comfortable as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is an all around car for any activity you're into

Cons: It's not the sexiest machine around...

In My Experience, You Can't Go Wrong With Any Subaru, And This Is No Exception. — I got this little girl for $18.5k (before extended warranty) with plenty of options, 2 years old, with less than 12k miles on it--practically brand new. A Subaru is no stranger to 200k miles, so she's looking to be a fantastic investment. A 2.5i and symmetrical AWD (of course) do the trick for getting to the slopes in the southern Appalachians (site of my hometown), navigating Atlanta traffic (site of my graduate school), and every bit of the drive in between.

Pros: A stylish, attractive little warm hatch (not quite "hot"); The rear seats fold down 60/40 for a great amount of cargo capacity; Looks just as good--if not better--with the racks taken off (an incredibly easy process); Clear tail lights are a nice touch; 17" wheels look good and drive well

Cons: Legroom in the back seats is...lacking; The automatic is only a 4-speed; "Manu-matic" shifting is less than smooth unless you really treat it like a stick with respect to being on and off the accelerator at the right times and in the right amounts; Leather seats, but the vast majority of the interior is plastic; Not quite as powerful or zippy as I'd like--granted, I'd like a WRX STI; Subaru's conversion to equal-length headers has left newer models completely devoid of that pretty Boxer Engine purr; No cup holders in the back seat; Nitrogen-filled tires might be all well and good, but finding places to fill them is obnoxious

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

Review By Guru9WBTD6

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
