Very good car

Vehicle2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewYeah, the handling isn't tight as my old 2.5 RS Impreza but its almost as much fun to drive with a much improved ride, a good tradeoff if you drive on rough roads. Also the overall interior design, room, and build quality is better too. It's almost as big as a Legacy on the inside. The fuel economy is better than the EPA figures. I get 27 mpg in mixed city/highway driving and the motor is not even broken in yet. Get the manual transmission unless you totally hate them. The four speed mutes the performance of the spunky motor a bit too much. The manual 2.5is almost make you forget about the WRX when you consider insurance and $3.25 premium gas.
Best FeaturesInterior design, build, ride, handling, flat 4 engine sound and you don't often see them. AWD is great in the winter and enhances handling very nicely.
Worst FeaturesPut the 5 speed auto from the Legacy Turbos/6 cylinder in please. The current 4 speed auto needs to be retired. Make a sport suspension at least optional, Subaru is on the verge of ruining its image and a few extra sales won't matter in the long term. Improve the base audio system.
