After having the car for awhile its not as good as my impressions of when I bought it from the dealership.
But it is a very good price AWD car.
Buying a Subaru was a different experience. I found out that you will get a substantial better price from a large volume dealer than smaller one. This is how Subaru distrubution model works and the Impreza is a hot car. Our order took 6 months instead of the 12 weeks we were told, but we kind of knew this going in.
-Very Comfortable seating, simple adjustme
-Solid Roof Rails
-Excellent gas mileage if driven correctly with the CVT you need to a light foot with the pedal and keep the rpms under 3000
-Easy oil changes
-Nice steering wheel and wheel controls
-CVT will be awful if you don't know how to drive it but I figured it out and love it.
-Suspension is a perfect balance between smooth ride and performance handling.
-Crosstrek bumper guard fits on the impreza and its nice and solid not like the sticker one that is an option
-People say they like the look of the car
-Has good leg room in back for adults for such a small car. One of main reasons we bought it
-Cell phone holder
-The speedometer is too small and hard to read with a quick glance
-No trailer hitch allowed on US model. Even for bike rack. Will Void warrenty
-17 Rims look great but will get chewed up with potholes as tires are about the same width or rims so no protection. I would get the 16 inches if it was possible.
-5 minute engine warm-up time in 30 degree weather
-Body metal is thin expect lots of parking lot dings
-Bluetooth setup is hard to use and doesn't always connect
-Fuel efficiency gauge resets with the trip counter
-kids have hard time with rear belt buckles as middle seat has a different size tab
-fuel door is on passenger side.
-Radio reception and sound are marginal
