2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
After one too many expensive problems with my Volkswagen VR6 I decided to trade it in for a Subaru. My first car was an '87 Subaru wagon. She wasn't much too look at and completely gutless but she was reliable. I found a used 2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5i sedan and took the car to my mechanic for a thorough check up. All it needed was an air filter and new battery.
Although it doesn't have the V6 5-speed of my old VW it has more power than I expected from a 4 cylinder. I love the growl of the boxer engine and it handles great. This car has turned out to be just as fun to drive and far more reliable. I can't imagine owning another VW or ever not owning a Subaru again!
Love the reliablity of Subaru! The All-Wheel-Drive handles perfectly in snow and ice. Never have to worry about being stranded on the side of the road.
Rear seats do not fold down allowing extension of trunk space. Back seats are a little cramped.
