2006 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
After considering the 2006 Civic, Jetta, Mazda3, and Beetle, I picked this Subaru for its absolute fun to drive qualities. I had more fun than I've had in a long time zipping around corners in this car. The gas mileage is better than EPA posts; I get 28 and 34 mpg. The transmission is wonderful, and the car looks snazzy and feels durable and well built. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a unique, fun to drive, affordable, and reliable economy car.
Durable build quality, transmission, engine, reliability, nice stereo, 16 inch wheels make this car look athletic, and the cloth seats look sporty and durable.
Getting 50 mpg would be nice (since I was asked)! Having a sunroof available wouldn't be bad either.
