Took the two week old Impreza on its first road trip. Nearly 1300 miles and pulled about 30 mpg the whole way. A/C worked great in 100+ degree heat. Clutch is still a little stiff, but that should loosen up after a while. I would highly recommend this car if you need an AWD. I live in Tahoe and can't wait to see how it does in the snow.
The fact that I wasn't nickled and dimed like Toyota and Honda does for basic features.
Battery and heat gauges on dash. Larger knobs on radio.
