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?
I canít say enough about this hog.
Sheís never let me down once. Iíve
owned the car now for two years and
have had absolutely no problems,
nothing. Iím an avid snowboarder and
I feel completely comfortable under
any weather conditions with the AWD.
The car is tractor in the snow and Iím
happy to say itís managed to plow
through some serious predicaments. It
handles beautifully however could use
a little more horsepower. Besides the
lack of power, which can be
frustrating, the car is infallible.
This car has been so reliable and hard working. The basic upkeep is all it has ever needed. When it snowed and the Mustang Cobra couldn't make it out of the driveway and the Mitsubishi Mirage slip, slided away.. the trusty Impreza just plowed on through! We purchased the basic, basic model... no frills and it just keeps on going. Always getting us where we need and want to go safely and with a minimum of fuss and bother. I am now looking to replace my 2001 Mitsubishi with a new Impreza... although I will go a little heavier on the "extras" this time.
Bought this to replace my Acura 3.2 CL for my commutes - and possibly to turn it into my autocross car, too. The coupe is attractive, pretty lightweight, has good power, and of course it has AWD. Everything I wanted in a car, plus pretty good gas mileage, too (26-28 mpg). I like the way it drives, the way it handles, the communicative steering, and the comfort of AWD for those not-so-nice winter days.
