Good value and fun to drive

Base model hatchback hauls a lot more than I expected. Where I work it's all large SUVs and full-size 4WD trucks but I have had no problems with clearance through mud and snow and I stick to the road a lot better (and faster) than they do with way better mileage. Base model has enough power for real world and car is pretty rock solid. Did have a rock take out my air conditioning (dealer then put a screen under the grill) and windshields don't take rocks too well, seem to crack easier than they should. All in all, way more fun than a truck or SUV with much lower operating costs. When the 2008s arrive I intend to buy one.

Absolutely love the value and memories in this car i miss mine every day. Id buy another one in a heartbeat. Turbo cars have turbo problems but this car can battle with the likes of corvette, ferrari, gtr for a fraction of the price

Faster than the law allows

This vehicle should come with a bio-degradable operator's licence. Although I have received only one speeding citation, it is because of a good radar-detctor and exceptional good fortune. The performance is breath-taking: in addition to unbelievable acceleration and braking, it corners as if it is on rails. It looks like economy sedan on steroids and if it has a single drawback it is the driver comfort that it lacks. The fuel economy is limited by the weight of one's right foot, but that means it is fair-to-poor milage for my driving style. The STi's greatest asset is "Fun" which it has in abundance. It is addictive, so enjoy the abuse if you purchase one.

This vehicle is unapologetically very fast and has a very aggressive road presence. This is a road going rally car, and as so all the intelligence lacking buttons in the cabin it has in performance. For the 2005 Wrx Sti comes standard with fully active LSD and ABS monitoring AWD, front/rear torque adjusting center differential with 4×4 locking, water spraying intercooler, differential heat monitoring, Brembo performance braking, 17 inch BBS wheels, Sti tuned suspension, adjustable shift light, a shorter-ratio 6 speed standard transmission, 4 way adjustable HID low beams, bucket seats, an aluminum alloy 2.5 liter flat 4 cylinder equipped with an IHI VF39 turbo producing 300hp @6000rpms 14 psi boost pressure from the factory 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. This is not for taking your mom to breakfast or grocery getting, but makes a great weekend driver or track day monster.
