It's been an amazing car, really fun to drive, quick response, no turbo lag, AWD and need I say more. I've put in over $4k in mods. and it's a beast.
2.5L turbo engine, quick spool time, acceleration, handling, AWD and crazy mods. Mods. And mods.
Speakers stink, black side mirror could've been color matched, depending on driver, the stock clutch wasn't made to be abused. Climate control would've been nice. I know it's a TR, but paying over $20k, you would've expected a lil' more. Still a loyal subie guy.
I have owned this car for 3 yrs now. Drove it stock for 2yrs and modified this last yr. With $2k worth of upgrades - this is a beast with 300 lbft of torque. Have driven it over mountain passes in Colorado in blizzard conditions without issues. Insane handling on any type of road with the right set of tires. Only regret is that I should have bought the STI at the time for the bullet proof 6 sp transmission. (only required if you plan to upgrade to >400hp)
Neck-snapping, throw-u-back-in-the-seat acceleration and the amazing handling and control on any road surface.
Sound insulation is non existent. A little couldn't hurt.
This is my daily driver and I couldn't ask for a better, more reliable vehicle. Dependable in all weather, fun to just cruise or get to where you need to be in a hurry. MPG are respectable depending on driving style and the car is very versatile. I own several motorcycles so I threw a hitch on and due to the great torque, tow them to the track with no issues, or attach a mountain bike hauler into the receiver and head into the mountains. This car continues to make me smile after more than two years of ownership!!
Tons of aftermarket support for upgrades but still decent right outta the dealership. Good acceleration and Subarus have a sound all their own.
The only thing I can think of is having the back seat fold down completely to access the trunk rather than the slit in the middle.
Man I love this car. After wanting one for few years, when the 06 with the 2.5 came out I jumped on it. With a couple minor bolt ons I am just as fast as cars costing twice as much. 13.30 1/4 mile@ 101mph not bad for $23k. My last car was a 460hp Mustang so I like power.
