2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased this car new and it was never abused.
This is my first Subaru and the awd was appealing. This car is Very disappointing! Around 14k miles the car started burning approx 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles. Subaru said this is normal! I think the new 2.0 engine has problems. The car also sounded like it had a bad wheel bearing, the dealer said the sound is the cvt transmission and again normal.
The stereo system is horrible! The build quality is really bad and at 19k miles the car is rattling and gas mileage dropped to 26 mpg. Don't make the same mistake I made, buy a Honda or Toyota and stay away from Subaru!
Oil consumption is a real problem as is build quality.
Fit and finish not as good as a Honda or Toyota. Road noise is excessive.
When the car is started with remote starter, as soon as you open the door, the car turs off.
Heat and AC not very good, AC doesn't work very well in hot weather.
Ergonomics need improvement, for example the heated seat switch is located under the arm rest.
