2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I looked at various cars: '05 Mustang GT, '06 BMW 3 series, Mazda 6. I drove the '05 WRX and liked it. When I drove the '06, it was love at first drive. Torque Monster! Love the motor! On the tollway, in 5th gear at 2500 rpm, no need to downshift - goose it and away you go. This is not a rubber band on/off motor. I like the new look; the body still is a bit dated looking to my eyes. The front wheels seem set back too far. I have yet to find the "let go" limits in this car. I will need some time in a big empty parking lot because it has a tenacious grip on the road. Very neutral feeling, I believe when it does let go it will slide on all fours instead of over or understeering. Happy so far.
Favorite Features
The motor make me smile, the price is right.
Suggested Improvements
The stock manual shifter is a throw-away. I upgraded to the factory short shift, better. This motor is screaming for a 6 speed overdrive manual with closer gearing.
