Lots of good things, but major flaws too
By Ken on
2011 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Almost a great car, but seats could be improved and I found the headrest to be very uncomfortable. Certain bass notes even at normal volume cause the door panels to rattle like a cheap car from the 80's. They should not try to produce any bass in the door speakers and instead use a subwoofer towards the back of the car like you'll find in any car with a nice sound system. I have the bass at -7 to stop the rattle, and may try a small aftermarket subwoofer in the back (good bye cargo space), not sure it will work. 4-speed trans needs an extra gear. Otherwise happy. Would recommend if they can fix these problems.
All weather features, AWD at low price. Nice handling. Haven't switched to paddles yet for shifting.
Improved seats/headrest, improved audio (avoid bass on door speakers), offer 5 speed auto and high end stereo option.
