2012 Subaru Impreza: I Think I'm in Love

Everytime I drive our long-term 2012 Subaru Impreza I talk to myself. I say, "Self, this is a really good car. It's comfortable, it's quick, it's easy to see out of and I like the spirit of its drivetrain."

Fact is, I'm so impressed with the Impreza, I've recommended it to several neighbors and friends of friends and so far two have bought Imprezas of their own, one hatchback and one sedan.

One of the things I like best about our Impreza Sport is its suspension tuning, which hits my personal ride and handling sweetspot. You feel the road in this car, but it's never hitting you in the back of the head with a shovel.

You can tell it was engineered and tuned by "car guys", but "car guys" that understand that a super stiff suspension tuned on the Nurburgring is inappropriate for this car.

Subaru still gets it.
