I owned a 1999 Subaru Impreza and loved everything about it until it died.
I just (less than a week ago) leased a 2012 Subaru Impreza Hatchback, the 5-speed.
Being a lover of the stick shift I was pleasantly surprised.
My last stick shift could barely make it up a specific hill in 3rd gear and let me tell you this impreza cruized on up in 5th gear - at 6mph none the less!
Some claim the interior is less than perfect, but come on when has Subaru been on the leading edge of sync technology or anything like that.
If you are driving a subaru it is becuase of the AWD and reliability.
So far I love it, but then it has only been 3 days.
I will post an update in a few weeks/months!
