I traded in my Subaru WRX to save some money with lower payments, lower insurance and to get better mileage, plus the WRX required premium gas. I just wanted a nice commuter & I even bought an A/T car for the first time in 15 yrs. I like the styling and a lot of the accessories, but what really bugs me is all the loose things on the car. Lots of interior squeaks and there is a clunking in the back after only two weeks. I think the build quality is mediocre. The power sunroof is almost worthless because it makes such an annoying sound when driving down the road at 40-45, it goes away on the freeway.
Steering wheel radio controls. 17" wheels/tires. Nice acceleration. Exterior styling.
Better build quality and fix the problems with the car before you sell it. This car has over a dozen TSB's for it, but the dealers sell them without fixing them like the substandard rear brake pads and both doors can have loose interior parts.
