2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
At 150,000 a head gasket was leaking. This repair cost about $2,500, which included grinding the valves while the heads were off and replacing the water pump and timing belt.
Unfortunately, this is a fairly common repair for Subarus.
The car is still fun to drive. It has a great power/weight ratio.
I still think of this as my "new car," and it looks and feels new despite some hard use.
The car is rugged built to last.
Great handling, visibility and simple controls.
They could have put a better radio in it, it buzzes when the headlights are on.
