Great College Car!
By TheJimmyJ on


1996 Subaru Impreza L 4dr Sedan AWD


I bought this car halfway through
college, and i couldn't be happier. AWD
is great, beats my parents cars in the
winter; it hugs the curves like it was
my grandma at thanksgiving; accel. is
ok, but it is amazingly peppy- my
friends all want to drive it; its safe,
with its dual airbags. and common
enough that repairs are inexpensive.
since i DID buy it used, it did have
problems. i think there was a shimmy in
the wheel, bad belt,and back strut. its
all fixed, and i could still afford my
books. Problems: ITS SO SMALL! = major
inferiority complex. virtually no
back seat room. Though it is techniclly
a sedan, i think of it as a 4-door

Best Features

AWD, 2 airbags, gas milage, amazing road capabilities. cool car overall.

Worst Features

size, acceleration, uncomfortable seats. you get what you pay for. i sought basic, and i got basic. also, i HATE subaru's windows! wow, they suck; i never really feel like they are totally closed. it makes the doors seem cheap, moreso. engineer a fully enclosed door-frame!
