A real Subaru
By Dave on
2007 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Nice car, no problems so far (7k miles/8 months). Fun to drive, more than adequate power from the 2.5 non-turbo, 5 speed manual has a nice feel. Competent for light off road use, get the skid plates. Fuel economy has been about 24 MPG, which isn't great, but it is acceptable.
Good cargo capacity and a large tailgate opening (for a compact wagon). The MP3/CD changer w/ aux. input works well.
RE92 tires are terrible. The height-adjustable seats need to go lower and the bolsters need to be larger and firmer. The Subaru-supplied roof rack aluminum crossbars are weak and bend easily. The rear suspension sags; stiffer/taller rear springs would be nice. Needs heated seats and mirrors.
