This is my first Subaru and I am extremely satisfied with it. I bought the car with 145K but with a rebuilt engine and it has never given me problems at all. the cars solid frame and design just make it own the road and not let go no matter how hard you try. the car is amazing and i plan on keeping it for a very long time. She's 10 years old but still races like a champ.
The AWD in the winter makes this car the best thing I have ever driven. especially doing AWD donuts and for people that know what I'm talking about know how much fun it is to make your friends sick. And the car is amazing off the line in a drag race
I love the sound of mine with its exhaust redone. Borla headers and an injen intake make the car roar. Very intimidating. Lowering springs also help the car grip the road even more. I've taken highway on ramps at close to 80 and the body does not shift on me

I strongly recommend the Impreza to
