2006 Subaru Impreza WRX Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/Off-Black Int. (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

The automatic version of this vehicle is quick after 2nd gear - which is fine. The exterior design always receives positive commentary. The interior design is very low key yet not boring.


Best Features

The growl of the magnaflow exhaust! The ability to stick to the road on hard curves at high speeds. I enjoy the way the Limited's rear deck lid spoiler finishes off the vehicle's aero dynamic design.


Worst Features

HID headlamps standard would be great. Getting rid of the indentation on the front bumper for a license plate bracket would be an improvement too!

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX TR 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Fun to drive, great power and handling, good looks, good reliability. The ideal sporty car. Warp drive for less than $25,000.


Best Features

Power, handling, braking.


Worst Features

If it had a Honda gearshift, it would be the perfect car.

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4dr Sedan AWD w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car is everything that I expected and much more. Sure this car is nearly 2x the HP of any previous car I've owned, also the first AWD vehicle. But it drives just like I wanted my dream car to be, after many years it's finally mine! I was and still remained so thrilled to get and own it. Acceleration, cornering, braking - all top notch for just over $30K.


Best Features

Boost is addictive. Acceleration at just the push of the pedal, at any legal speed (and more). Never thought a car could stay stuck in turns at the speed I took them through!


Worst Features

Make the boy-racer wing an option (besides the Limited!). (Got my first speeding ticket in this cop magnet.) 2007 addressed the mpg concern. Any way to fix the steering column thunk/rattle during hard cornering?

Vehicle

2006 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is amazing in some things and ok in others.Starting out with amazing things: great, AWD handles EXCELLENT in rain/snow/mud, great exterior style, drives very smoothly and takes corners very well, 26 MPG. Some of the things I dont like: jerky @ very low speeds in 1st/2nd gear not so much 2nd, inconsistent low fuel light and one rattle I've noticed under the steering wheel. This car has good pick up speed. The interior is pretty nice, but the seats could be a little more comfortable. Carpet in the car seems a little cheap, hard to get pine needles, dirt etc out of it.This was fixed by buying rubber floor mats I cut to customize fit. Overall a great buy, money well spent VERY safe and a blast.


Best Features

Symetrical AWD, mirror compass, daytime funning lights, auto sensor passenger airbag, good cargo space, GREAT HANDLING. Overall a great buy.


Worst Features

Rattle, low fuel light, better carpet, better seats, slightly better sound system.

The drag strip will clear any doubt.

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4dr Sedan AWD w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Rev it up to 7K RPM, dump the clutch and everybody will have to play catch up including some modified cars. I had my doubts of its performance, but a trip to the local drag strip took care of it. I was highly impressed (13.4) of its performance for an unmodified car. It outperformed Evo, GTO, Mustang, Firebird, mod 350z, mod cobalt SS and several others; couldn't ask for more.


Best Features

Performance, handling, braking, paint quality, good size trunk and turning radius.


Worst Features

Fold down rear seats, rear seat space, rear side curtain airbag.
