This is a great and under rated car. It handles in all kind of weather, always starts, never breaks down so it costs way less than my previous Ford to maintain. The style is Italian designed and still turns heads. Given the limited number built and sold in the USA it gets rarer by the day. I have 125,000 miles and plan to go to 200,000 with confidence. My only complaint is that the level of interior finish could have been better.

I have owned this car for 5 years and
I love it. I have had a couple of
repairs to do on it, but I'd do
anything to keep this car. The
aftermarket is starting to heat up, as
well. A new 350+ hp supercharger kit
will be out soon and there are
countless amounts of aftermarket parts
such as, exhaust, intake, brakes,
interior and exterior accessories are
available now. If Subaru decides to
bring this car to the market again, it
would be a great seller.

the highway with a lot of extra peddal
to go; about 90 mph @3500rpms. I get
about 19mpg city. This car takes
premium gas. I had no trouble getting
up to Alta, Utah, for a powder ski day
when only 4x4's and cars with chains
were allowed up the canyon. Under the
paint is a zinc coating to help reduce
corrosion - so smart! Fender wells
designed to keep splashes/road tar
from going all over the car's body.
Overall great (Italian)styling.
There were a bunch up until 1996 or so. The closest thing to the WRX would be the 230 HP (I think) AWD SVX. It competed well in the sport car field but had funky looks and a steep price that really ke...
