My first foreign car purchase. I've
never had 4 wheel drive before either.
So the Impreza was an all-around new
experience. A good experience so far.
Looked at the Matrix/Vibe, loved them
but for a lower price got a loaded
Impreza TS Wagon in AWD. Also looked
at the PT Cruiser.. great storage space
but performance, lack of AWD and very
poor gas mileage. All in all very
Love the AWD, love the design of the
dashboard. Those red displays in the
other vehicles are visually
disturbing. Love the height
adjustment on the drivers seat. Love
the roof rack and lack of antenna on
Passenger area needs larger nooks and
crannies to put stuff. Map pockets in
door are tiny as is the "extended"
armrest, rear foot room is tiny. Also,
move the retracting (great idea) cup
holder away from the stereo. 2nd
cupholder wouldn't hurt either. Put a
light in the cargo area.
