2009 Subaru Impreza - Poor in Heavy Snow
By djarvinen on
Vehicle
2009 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
The 2009 Subaru Impreza we purchased has for the most part been a very good car. It handles well, has plenty of power, controls are well placed, is spacious and has very nice styling. The big problem is handling in heavy snow! The car has a design flaw that allows snow to build up above the front axle which causes heavy vibrations above 45 mph. At 60 mph the vibrations become violent. We were told by the dealership that we would need to use a high pressure hose to clear the snow out (pretty hard to do in inclement weather/conditions).
Favorite Features
We really enjoy the all wheel drive in poor driving conditions. The spacious interior can accommodate most people and the well placed controls are easily within reach without being a distraction to the driver.
Suggested Improvements
Come up with a solution for the design flaw that allows the build-up of snow which causes unsafe driving conditions.
