First car I loved long after buying it

Vehicle

2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD w/Premium Package, VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Wanted AWD and comfort without a 3 series price. Found it in the Impreza. 130 mph without the turbo. 65 mph = 34.5 mpg. 80 mph = 27 mpg. Feels pinned to the road in the rain. Snow is manageable with the stock tires; rather have some snow tires. Premium sound system is ok. Audiophiles won't live with it for long. Durable interior. I'm hoping for 200,000 miles and I think I'll get it.

Favorite Features

Decent pickup with the 5 speed manual. Fantastic balance of agility, ride comfort, quality, and economy.

Suggested Improvements

Wish the "premium" sound sounded like a "premium" system. Teeny bit of leaning in corners. Telescopic wheel would be nice.
