My wife and I purcarhased two new subarus in 2011.
One a Legacy limited and the other a Impreza premium 5 door.
The Legacy is great but the Impreza was a different story.
I bought an automatic, should have bought a 5 speed.
The 4 speed auto was terriable.
The transmission got worse as i put miles on it.
No mechanical problems just poor performance.
The seats were a cheap material that faded fast.
The tomtom navi was replaced after 14 months.
The door trim rotted off.
The center consoles plasic started comming off.
The only good feature is the AWD.
After 15 months i traded it for a 2012 Forester( i still love subaru).
Im glad the impreza was updated.
