2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5 i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 4th Subaru (1 outback, 1 legacy, 1WRX, and this vehicle), and this is the best one yet. It handles perfectly, and the gas mileage is unbelievable. I use this vehicle as a first responder car and I have beaten even the police cruisers to calls. There is not a single thing I would improve on the vehicle.

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/Off-Black Int. (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

My WRX is a fun yet very practical car. Although it does not have tons of power, it is very quick getting up to 80 which makes highway driving good. It has stable and precise steering. Gas mileage isn't great, but it beats most other AWD/4WD vehicles out there. The stock tires are not a good performance tire and are pretty crappy in snow. Not a lot of storage space, but not so small it is useless (I have the sedan, the wagon would be a better choice for some). You can't beat it for the price.


Best Features

Sporty, yet great in snow for New York winters without much sacrifice in gas mileage. Very reliable. Only issue was a windshield washer sprayer. Minor detail.


Worst Features

The stock tires on the car should more designed for performance or rain/snow. They aren't great for either.

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX Limited 4dr Sedan AWD w/Off-Black Int. (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

The automatic version of this vehicle is quick after 2nd gear - which is fine. The exterior design always receives positive commentary. The interior design is very low key yet not boring.


Best Features

The growl of the magnaflow exhaust! The ability to stick to the road on hard curves at high speeds. I enjoy the way the Limited's rear deck lid spoiler finishes off the vehicle's aero dynamic design.


Worst Features

HID headlamps standard would be great. Getting rid of the indentation on the front bumper for a license plate bracket would be an improvement too!

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX TR 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Fun to drive, great power and handling, good looks, good reliability. The ideal sporty car. Warp drive for less than $25,000.


Best Features

Power, handling, braking.


Worst Features

If it had a Honda gearshift, it would be the perfect car.

Vehicle

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 4dr Sedan AWD w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car is everything that I expected and much more. Sure this car is nearly 2x the HP of any previous car I've owned, also the first AWD vehicle. But it drives just like I wanted my dream car to be, after many years it's finally mine! I was and still remained so thrilled to get and own it. Acceleration, cornering, braking - all top notch for just over $30K.


Best Features

Boost is addictive. Acceleration at just the push of the pedal, at any legal speed (and more). Never thought a car could stay stuck in turns at the speed I took them through!


Worst Features

Make the boy-racer wing an option (besides the Limited!). (Got my first speeding ticket in this cop magnet.) 2007 addressed the mpg concern. Any way to fix the steering column thunk/rattle during hard cornering?
