2012 Subaru Impreza Sedan 2.0i Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I recently purchased a 2012 Subaru Impreza Premium with a 5 speed manual.
This is the second Subaru I have owned.
I had a 2002 WRX for 10+ years and I was sold on Subaru vehicles ever since.
The build quality (100% Japan), reliability, handling and overall performance make these vehicles a "no brainer" in my mind.
I did a ton of research prior to selecting my new Impreza.
I read numerous reviews both positive and negative.
I take what I read on the internet with a "grain of salt."
It took some time to locate and test drive an Impreza with a manual transmission.
I was sold from the moment I placed the vehicle in 1st gear and hit the accelerator!
