I'm in love with my 2.5 RS. Yes it's a
WRX lite, but I saved a lot of green on
the overall cost and insurance. Plus
the RS is a great performer. Gotta have
the 5 speed though. I've had zero
problems after 1,500 miles. The car is
tight. Great feel. Awesome brakes.
Comfortable, sporty seats. Shifting is
a little stiff. Subaru should study
manual trannys at Nissan. Dealers are
eager to sell this car. You can get a
great price, and probably just about
any of the options at cost.
The AWD was the biggest selling point
here. Car handles great. Feels very
secure on rainy streets. The brakes are
extremely responsive, give you a great
sense of security. The leather trim on
the steering wheel and shifter are very
The sound system could be better.
Moonroof should be an option. There
should be more color options.
