I have barely had the WRX Wagon long enough to break it in. The mix of strong performance, great handling, full time all wheel drive, large brakes, lots of front seat head room, adequate back seat room for two, a wagon tail end (with no sacrifice to handling or speed) is very attractive for a car priced in the low to mid-twenties. The new 2.5L motor gives better around town drivability than the previous motor and gives great 'get out of my way' acceleration. ;-)
Ample head room in front. Great seats that catch me where I need it. Great acceleration, handling, and braking.
Fuel economy is not great. The power curve is strong, but a little lumpy as RPMs climb. This may smooth out as the car wears in a little.
