2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
This is my second Subaru. I love them both. Great cars. This one is a good value for a base car. Lots of standard equipment compared to Honda and Toyota and with AWD it can't be beat. AWD drags fuel economy down a bit but if you ever need it, even once, that penalty is worth the price. This car is roomy, fairly quiet, and is very comfortable.
The interior lay out is attractive. This car is very nice looking in Newport blue. I like that the hood stays up with out a prop rod (it uses hydraulic cylinders).
Subaru needs to retire the 4 speed auto trans and use a 5 speed. The optional armrest shoud move farther forward and raise higher. Radio buttons are too small.
