2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium PZEV 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)

Review

Going on year two of ownership of a 2012 Impreza Premium Sedan. Here is the good; It's a very fun to drive car, and will put a smile on your face every time you drive it on a back road. The AWD is a lifesaver in the snow and works wonderfully. The interior controls are laid out nicely, and very easy to use. Now for the not so good; The car lacks overall refinement. In the cold the engine is noisy, and there is always a delay when selecting gear with the CVT. The car is very smooth at speed, and the ride is comfortable. The eco-tires it comes with lack grip and love to slide around. After only 20,000 miles the interior is FULL of rattles, and the sound system is awful.

Favorite Features

-bluetooth streaming -iPod USB connectivity -AWD - Alloy wheels, body colored exterior mirrors, door handles -almost 30MPG in an AWD car -cost less than $20,000 -good paint quality -no reliability issues

Suggested Improvements

- The stereo quality is abysmal at best - Standard touch screen radio - the interior is high quality and well put together, but for some reason the two speaker grills by the windshield, and the rear doors rattle - improve cloth durability on interior - get rid of delay when selecting gears - more sound deadening for engine bay
