Lots of noise
By seafields6 on


2013 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited PZEV 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


I have a
2012 @ have put 20,000 miles on it.
This one has the deluxe stereo & $300 speaker option, which is good because sometimes you can actually hear some music above the engine/transmission noise when you're starting off & the awful tire noise all the time.
Subaru apparently has no knowledge of sound proofing.
They ruined the car for me by choosing these noisy low rated tires.
Maybe I'll like this car once these tires are replaced with something better.

Best Features

Styling, handling, four wheel drive.

Worst Features

Sound proofing. Better tires. Better stereo.

Visit the Tire Rack site and get ratings on some nice all-season tires, it will make your car much quieter. These Avid tires are also used on the Mazda 3, as both cars are built in the same region of Japan. A shame, as Yokohama can build a quiet tire, and do so here in North America.

That's it for me. I don't want another noisy car. I have a Fit I love but it's too noisy on trips.
