Not perfect, but a great value

ReviewI have a 2002 WRX wagon. The car is VERY fun to drive - but before purchasing understand the maintenance costs of AWD(blow one tire, you either have toreplace all four or buy a special onewith the same tread). Premium gas isvery expensive nowadays too. But the car is a great value because it's a blast to drive and will tear up the road, but you can fit five people in it if you have to and the cargo room is excellent for acar this size. The car lacks in creature comforts - the seats hold you in very well around corners but is uncomfortable especially if you are a larger person. Cupholders and storage desperately needs improvement. But, I love my car becauseit does it all.
Best FeaturesFun to drive. Cargo area is very large and makes the car a great value -you can move house in it if you have to. Backseat has great room for such a small car. Most features you'd want come standard. Drives awesome in winter conditions.
Worst FeaturesRadio is proprietary and when something goes wrong, the whole thing has to be replaced. Seats hold you in, but makef or very uncomfortable day-to-daydriving. Premium is expensive. Foglight/cruise control buttons hard to reach. Creature comforts (cupholders,storage areas) very lacking.
