2008 Subaru Impreza WRX 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Premium Package, VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Being that it has turbo, the WRX is a blast to drive in a straight line. Add corners to the equation and you'd better hang on to the handles if you have the 08. Don't worry, they added sway bars to the 09 WRX because of the problem. They also added significantly more horsepower to the 09 WRX. I feel ripped off that these fixes didn't come with the original 08 WRX model.

Best Features

Heated seats, hatchback trunk makes it easy to see out of and to load big items with the seats folded down. AWD makes being in the snow fun. Safety ratings are great! Better go with the better speakers from what others have said about the base speakers. My upgraded dealership speakers sound great!

Worst Features

Sunroof, improved gas mileage, interior noise dampening, fix the shifter, passenger side airbag has a difficult time picking up people around 107 pounds which makes the girlfriend a little nervous it won't go off in an accident. Maybe a button to keep it on if you want?
