2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Got this used with 63k miles on it after losing my 2006 Vibe in a car accident. So far I am enjoying my purchase. My biggest gripe is that the back seat does not fold down but that was not enough to be a deal breaker for me. I just hate putting a trunk-mounted bike rack on the car. But it is a solid car. Very little road noise. Very good acceleration. Decent on gas but I knew it would not be great with the AWD. I would buy a Subaru again in a heartbeat but I am still nervous from buying it from a used car lot and not a Subaru dealer. Wish me luck.
173 HP engine is unreal for a "non performance" compact car. Most are in the 130 HP range. Solid handling and road manners. Looks sharp and is not a cookie cutter car. Subaru reliability I hope.
Probably already fixed by now with new models but I suggest a fold down rear seat. A real stereo system too.
