2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Just bought a Base w/out premium package a few days ago. Options: iPod, painted guards, mats. I love the front independent and wishbone, sooo smooth. Especially in Seattle where there are lots of hills, cobble stone brick roads and potholes. 5 star crash test rating. Can't wait to get to the mountain passes and take advantage of the AWD. This is simply much more value then any other car in class. If you can afford Premium w/ VCD do it.
Performance! Quick off the line and revs fast. Built sporty even though it's not the Sport or WRX hatchback design offers a more functional space as opposed to sedan. LED tail lights, get em! Standard airbags for front and back seat side impact. Lot's of standard options, HIDs! AWD!
Base interior needs some improvement, already hear some sort of rattle coming from the cargo cover or seat at 110 miles. Carbon fiber hood. Dash and roof kinda cheapy but very functional. I am definitely gonna stick a Garmon behind the steering wheel in front of the gas guage.
