2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
This car is a lot of fun to drive, very responsive, great handling. It is built like a tank, no funny noises anywhere so far (I've had the car for 4 months). Suspension is awesome, you can pass a speed hump at 30 mph and you won't feel it. Great brakes, had no problem stopping on wet roads. I am waiting for winter to see how the AWD behaves. Overall is the best car I could find, a lot of value for the price.
Suspension, torque, style, built to be durable, great quality.
The transmission is good, but it could be crisper. Better carpet. Fold down back seats would be a plus, although I rarely used that feature on my previous car. Space in the back back seat is a little tight.
