Fun little car. I wanted something practical but not boring like hondas & toyotas. Car handles great, suspension is firm and gives nice feedback but on ruff roads it doesn't beat you up. Acceleration feels faster than it is. I have taken this car every where and it has never let me down. Car plows through snow. Car is a jack of all trades.
AWD handling and traction. The wrx look without $$insurance and prem fuel. Boxer rumble is best sounding 4 cylinder motor period.
Stop building attractive cars for only 2 years. 2004-2005 imprezas are the best looking ones. More power for base models. Ac compressor, water pump, & cat-converter broke before 60k.
