2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Hands down I think this is the best first car a teen could have. I love it. Having been in search of a car and having saved $10k for a car, I wanted to make sure I was getting a quality build, reliable, fun, usable, and most of all SAFE car. Having bought the 5-door the Impreza had more usability, resale value personality, and safety then the Elantra I looked at, and I got it for the same price as an Elantra with the Extended Warrenty and a lower APR. I really love my car. It's beautiful inside and out. Plus it has AWD, something found on only one other car in its class.

Best Features

AWD, build quality, interior space, interior design, ride quality, personality, LED tail lights, usability.

Worst Features

All hard plastic interior, rear drum brakes, what happened to allow wheels which were standard on the 2007 2.5i? Stereo could be a little better. Standard Aux. Jack.
