buyer's remorse
By aross3 on


2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


I have major buyers remorse from this purchase.
My husband convinced me that this was my dream car and it surely is NOT!!! The seats in this car are so uncomfortable, I have constant lower backpain from driving this vehicle.
I would not recommend this car to a friend or even an enemy.
There is no lumbar support even offered in the Impreza.
This would probably be a better suited car for a high school kid that has absolutely no back issues is in perfect shape and does not care about comfort in a vehicle.

Best Features


Worst Features

Definitely lumbar support. Also, I feel like I'm too close to the ground, just a bigger seat and more comfort in general. I test drove an Audi A4 and those seats are much more comfortable.

I think there is more than a few thousand dollars in difference between an Audi and a Subaru. I'm sure a Porsche SUV is more comfortable than my Forester.

There's more to a car than the comfort of the seat.
