One Tough Set Of Wheels
By GF on


1996 Subaru Impreza L 2dr Coupe AWD


This car is great. I have owned it
for 7 years and it has continued to be
a reliable, fun to drive car. It's no
RS or WRX, but the basic foundation is
there. This, combined with the AWD make
this car a blast to drive hard into
corners and accelerate out of curves
with grip that sticks like superglue.
This car absolutely loves bad weather.
Snow and rain are simply no match for
the incredible AWD. Bottom line: I
love knowing that this car will get me
where I need to go safely, and
comfortably. The AWD is confidence
inspiring. You really do feel safe in
this car, no matter what the weather.
How many cars in this price class can
you say that about?

Best Features

ALL WHEEL DRIVE!! The steering is nicely weighted. Heater and AC work quickly every time. Knowing that my car will start every time I turn the key!

Worst Features

firmer anchors for the frameless windows. They rattle too much when partially down and my drivers side window came off the track once. Dealer repaired under warranty.
