This is a great car. I have owned a Legacy and Outback Wagon, and the 2008 Impreza WRX is a different car - but still a Subaru in all respects. The WRX is fast, fun, and AWD. Pics do not do the new body style any justice. Lots of reviews slam Subaru for making the WRX more "mainstream" to appeal to a larger audience. So what. It's a blast to drive!
Turbo, AWD. Safe
Stereo is still a weak point with Subaru. It's okay, but nothing special. Sheet metal (especially the top of the front fenders) seems really thin. Door handles are not a solid feel.
