Inexpensive WRX alternative

Vehicle2003 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI looked at the WRX wagon initially, but decided the extra $4000 and higher insurance rates weren't worth it. The TS is a fun, sporty driving car with the benefit of AWD and the Insureance Institute for Highway Saftey best crash rating. I like its "quirky" styling because you don't see much else like it on the road. The 2.5l engine provides plenty of power for freeway driving and the mountains. Much better than the Saturn its replacing. The back seats might be a little cramped for adults over 5'7" on long trips and I'd like to see alloy wheels and keyless entry made standard, but those are my only major gripes. Very solid, fun car to drive.
Best FeaturesAWD, styling, the storage area, the handling, decent mileage for an AWD vehicle (ave. 26mpg on mixed highay and city driving).
Worst FeaturesSmall back seat, antenna should be built into the back window, no standard alloy wheels or keyless entry.
