2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Meets all of the following: AWD, good gas mileage (for an AWD), reliability, safety, and price below $20K. I studied (e.g., Consumers Reports, JD Powers, Edmunds.com, etc.) and found no rivals...mostly because Versa, Fit, Yaris, Mazda 3 do not offer all the above. There are better stereos, acceleration and MPG out there, but nothing that rates at least a "good" at everything. Most new owners are excited with their cars, so only time will tell the truth. However, my 3 months/5,0000 miles experience support the claims of other professional reviews and the positive history of this car model.

Favorite Features

Fit & finish. Gas mileage I get for an AWD is 25 mpg combined. Ergonomics.

Suggested Improvements

Sways left-right a little during avoidance-type maneuvering. Some interior sections scratch easily, mediocre audio speakers standard, so-so transmission. However, I can get up and down Sierra foothills just fine.
