2015 Subaru WRX Sedan Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Traded in a Mustang GT for a WRX with CVT. What a mistake. The cars electronics (radio/Bluetooth/seat heaters) are out of the early 90's. The radio has poor reception and sound quality was awful. The Bluetooth would randomly disconnect, whether using my iPhone or Android phone. The car developed a bunch of rattles. The ride was harsh and the road noise was unbearable. The front paint was flaking off. Most of the issues were well documented in service bulletins but no fixes identified. The AWD was not that good in snow. The back end would over drive and cause the back end to slide out. Traded in on another Mustang. What a mistake.


Favorite Features

None


Suggested Improvements

Electronics need to be recreated. The noise level needs significant improvement and the ride needs to be softened.

2015 Subaru WRX Sedan Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

Traded in my 2008 wrx, manual for the 2015 CVT. Wanted an automatic, was delighted to hear the new WRX was in auto, even if a CVT. Love it. Boring in regular mode, fantastic in sport #. Use it mostly in the middle performance mode for everyday driving. Lots of road noise, very still suspension. Razor sharp steering I've never come across before. Paddle shifters good, only use it to do a race start. Crappy navi, good stereo with Harman option. Very good cornering, brakes a bit stiff to push but work well.


Favorite Features

Steering, cornering.


Suggested Improvements

Less road noise, more bolstered seats.

2015 Subaru WRX Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Was in the market for a non fwd car, manual trans, and a useable back seat for under 30k. Very few cars to choose from, but thankfully Subaru exists! Great power, just the boost takes some getting used to.Steering is tight with great feel.Very comfortable seats and visabilty front and rear is great.


Favorite Features

Its just a fun car and I cant help but grin when driving it.alot of complaints with the stock stereo ive read.I didnt find it that awful.mine came with the STI short throw shifter.highly recommended.


Suggested Improvements

The Oem tires are sticky but noisey. Wish there was a boost guage in the primary instrument cluster.You give up radio data if you want to see it..and its out of your line of sight anyway. The option packages jack the price up quicky but didnt see alot of value stepping up a notch. Two grand more for fog lights and a wee spoiler I wouldnt mind...plus stuff like heated seats I have no use for? (South Florida). You dont get anything more performance wise unless you buy a STI.

Review

Purchased the WRX after test-drive & reading reviews of WRX and WRX STI - I liked the STI's acceleration, handling, and in particular the brakes, but did not care for the appearance of fin or stiffness. As a 40+ yr old, I was looking for a car that was fun, but non-descript in a corporate parking lot and comfortable as a commuter/pick up the kids vehicle. I've driven the WRX 6K+ miles, and live in the Colorado foothills, windy road. It is a blast! Took awhile to get used to timing (turbo lag) and too many RPM's while shifting does release a horrible smell, but this only occurs when not careful. The car is very light; braking and acceleration = very responsive. I'm 6'2 200 lbs.

Review

This is a fast, excellent handling little car that is inexpensive and practical. It's a little rough around the edges but I love driving this car! Sometimes I have trouble taking off smoothly but after a second of turbo lag it really moves! Handling is precise and grip is amazing. The ride is very firm but well controlled. The clutch emits a pukey smell when slipped and the A/C is marginal. There is quite a bit of road and wind noise inside. I can't seem to get the base stereo to sound good; Kicker speaker upgrade is on the way.


Favorite Features

Power, handling, price.


Suggested Improvements

Quieter interior, A/C ( I will have it checked at the first service).
