2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Owned the car for about 5 months so far. Before i bought it the dealership did rear pads and rotors along with timing belt replacement. It got horribly gas mileage in the winter time, i do a short commute, and let the car warm up, but i have never got this bad gas mileage. about 230 kms per 35-40 liters of premium. All seemed well until i had to replace both front wheel bearings a month ago, costing me over $1000 at a Subaru dealership. I suspect not many other repairs in the near future, and seems quite solid overall.
power from the turbo, seating position ( can accommodate very tall drivers, i am 6'3" and the seat is not all the way back yet), frameless window/doors, AWD, very good looking
fold down rear seats, better interior materials (cheap plastic, worse than civic's), remote trunk popper, better stereo, paint that doesn't chip so easily, a little more rear seat room
