I looked at the Protege5 and Jetta
wagons before deciding on the Subaru
Imprezza wagon. The Jetta was too
small for my husband, and the Subaru
was so much more fun to drive than the
Protege. I haven't had it long (10
mos), but the only problem I've had is
that it is difficult shift into
reverse. I can fit a ton of stuff in
the back, rubber cargo mat is excellent
when driving dogs around, and at the
end of an 8 hour drive, we are still
comfortable. I hope this car remains
as trouble free and fun to drive as it
is right now.
AWD is great on hills and curves.
Feels like the tires have claws on
No top door rim around windows may
allow moisture to get inside. My
windows fog terribly in cold weather.
Luckily I live in a place where this is
only a problem about 2 times a year.
