2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Premium Package, VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased a new Impreza last November, this is the Canadian Sports Model (similar to the US sold "2.5i with Premium Package, VDC". A great car to drive, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a severe winter that had snow on the ground over a 6 month period - and this is definitely a fantastic car for these conditions. Only negative was when I noticed rust on the rear panel (around the license plate) in a number of spots in June. The dealer has been very helpful and concurred that yes, this is rust, and this should not happen.

Best Features

Heated seats, front windshield wiper defrosters, fabulous sound system, smooth ride and acceleration. A fun car.

Worst Features

Seats are too low, and there are people with back problems who have had trouble with the seats. Add a lumbar support option / better seats, and the ability to raise the passenger seat in addition to the drivers seat.
