I have a 2013 Limited sedan, and you are right: the standard tires are for summer use only. I fit my car with Continental Winter tires and it feels much more secure now, and rides quieter as well. As for the radio, agree with you, it is a joke. I replaced it with an aftermarket unit with NAV and upgraded the speakers. These two things have transformed the car for me.Report it
I have a 2013 impreza 5psd Traded in a 2012 legacy because cvt is crap and im pretty sure it will break. Any ways it stock as rock same skinny tires it came with and it is an absolute blast in the snow. The manual comes with a diff awd system (better im my opinion 50/50 split. With traction control on its an absolute beast let off and counter steer while still in gear and it does all the work for you. Turn traction control off and get the party started great control very predictable good balance favorite car in the snow by far and ive driven the understear machine they call quattro. (a4) double the priceReport it
Gboyce, Your review is beyond silly. If your Impreza has no center armrest, why did you buy the base model? You also have no knowledge of a Subaru's strong points, namely their ability to handle inclement weather, snow, etc., with ease; nor the vehicle's impeccable reliability ratings. All the models, base, premium & limited have manually adjustable seats in the front, so your point is mute. A Civic is much the same in this regard. I have no idea what you are hooking your front bumper on; many newer vehicles, namely sedans have lower front spoilers, so try not to run up on curbs if you will. You've got your units mixed up; the Impreza will exceed 35 mph easily; heck my limited model will run over 90 mph. The vehicle also gets great mileage at reasonable speeds on the highway; about 35-37 miles per gallon or MPG. The few shortcomings of the vehicle appear to be the sound system & tire noise I'll agree as most other reviewers concur. Cvt's will become even more widespread in cars of the Impreza size & even larger (new Camry & Accord), so get use to it.Report it
