If you've ever driven go-karts in those
tourist amusement parks, you know that
you don't need neck-snapping
acceleration to have fun on 4 wheels.
This Subaru is like that. Sure, the WRX
has greater acceleration (at a greater
price), but this is a GREAT bargain. 35
MPH highway exit ramps become 55 MPH
ramps. This car goes exactly where you
point it under superb control. Make
sure you get the 5-speed manual, and
you'll love driving this car.
Good acceleration, great handling,
great seats, great steering, great
brakes, great (manual) transmission,
terrific engine sounds
Not very people would ever describe
this car as "knock-out gorgeous". I
agree, but its quirky looks grow on you
after awhile. Also, you won't really
care what it looks like from the
outside when you're on the inside
