Best Commuter for 4 Seasons
By Strand on


2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car as my commuter ride - 90 miles/day on mostly open roads, only a hand full of lights and stops. Believe it or not, I'm averaging 34-35 mpg for the last 10k miles. This likely has a lot to do with the lack of stop and go and the elevation (5500-7200'). I'm still amazed that an AWD car can be this nimble, get this kind of mileage, and do so well in the mountains.

Best Features

Performance for the price, fuel economy, reliability, AWD

Worst Features

I believe they've already made 4 wheel disc brakes standard, I'd also like to see the standard stereo upgraded with the sub and iPod interface (come on, everyone has an iPod these days)
