WOW! Never Fails to Impress...
By Craig on

Vehicle

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4dr Sedan AWD w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

This car is amazing. From twisty back roads to highway cruising, it carves through miles and traffic like a hot knife through butter. Suspension is soft enough to not kill your back, but firm when it needs to be. Grip is good, but can be improved with 235/40 tires replacing the stock 225's. Power is fine, even low-end grunt is adequate, but the real treat happens after a very brief turbo spool-up...then holy cats! Basically, find the biggest, toughest guy you know and stick him in the passenger seat. Accelerate from a stop to 70mph getting on the highway and watch his face go white with terror and then start giggling like a schoolgirl...works every time.

Favorite Features

Nice interior, if a bit spartan (certainly better than anything from Mitsubishi), and the reliability is terrific. Powerplant is amazing and the suspension is phenomenal.

Suggested Improvements

Needs better seats (these don't fit me as well as my old Recaros did) and, um, that's about it. Everything else is fine as is, if not great.
