This is my 2nd Subaru, with owning a fuel efficient Prius C in between so I has been spoiled by AWD and high fuel efficiency in the past, so I wanted to find something that combined the best of both worlds. When I came looking back at Subaru they said this was the highest MPH AWD vehicle, but I was kinda burned by the head gasket issues of my Earlier 2002 Forester at 90K. However with this being a smaller redesigned engine, and reviewing comments on earlier years of this generation. my only concern was oil consumption some had experienced. I gently broke my vehicle in, and I have had no problems in this department! and if you keep it on open roads at 55-65 mph cruise you will do 36+mpg

To say I love Subarus is actually understating the facts. I just purchased my fourth Impreza. I am a nurse and live in Northeastern Ohio where the weather can be very intimidating especially when oftentimes I'm up and on the roads before the plows. No only have my Subarus been terrific on the road but each of them has been really fun to drive. What I like best, other than the AWD, is the reliability. My 2009 Impreza had 200,000 hard driven miles on it when something went in the transmission. Waiting to have it diagnosed. However, engine still starts immediately and am seriously considering having it fixed to use as third car because I loved it so much. Bought another Impreza next day

Overall this car is pretty good! I have about 5,000 miles on it so its still pretty new. The car is very light so on windy days the car does get punched around a bit but not a big deal. The sound system blows ass but is better than the 2005 Impreza I drove before. The only complaint I have is that when I'm driving on a shitty road with a lot of bumps I hear a slight rattle coming from the back of the interior when I hit bumps but it only does it hear and there and lately seems to have stopped. But nothing major. The build of the car such as the suspension is awesome and when driving you can tell its strong. The interior quality is built well for the most part except for a couple little areas

I bought my Impreza with about 108,000 miles on it and I've put about 10,000 miles on it and it is a fantastic car. It comes standard with Subaru's A-Symmetrical All Wheel Drive, which is great if you live in areas where it snows, it gets great fuel economy, the interior slightly better than what you would find in some other cars at this size and price point, and it has been rock-solid reliable. The handling is not sporty, but it is sharp and confident which makes it very comfortable at highway speeds. Subaru designed a new engine in the redesigned Impreza in 2013, so it no longer suffers from a head gasket issue, which has been a costly repair for past Subaru owners. It also earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick Award in the Small Overlap Front, Moderate Overlap Front, and Side crash tests. It also has a lot of backseat room and trunk space for how small it is, you can fit 3 people in the back but the middle seat is small so it is better with just 2 people. Another item of note is that Bluetooth phone connectivity is standard on all except for the base trim. The only downsides to this car is that the engine, a 2.0 Liter Boxer 4-Cylinder, provides mediocre performance and sounds like it's running out of breath when merging onto a highway on-ramp, but then again, it is in no way marketed to be a Sports Car; if you want that, go get yourself a WRX. The CVT (continuously variable transmission) works well in improving fuel economy, but it does amplify engine noise when you need the extra power to accelerate. The standard sound system isn't the best, but other than those minor annoyances, this car is fantastic. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for a safe, reliable, and efficient economy car.

I've had my base model Impreza sedan for about six months now, and I have already put over 12000 miles on it. This car was a fantastic value! I live in MN, so an AWD is essential. It's no WRX, but the 2.0 with a five speed manual gets up to highway speed with ease. I am averaging 34mpg with mixed driving. Gets around 40 on the highway if you know how to drive properly. I'm a fairly tall man, 6'5 and this thing has tons of head and leg room. I check the oil with every fill-up, and it has not used a drop of oil. I have the oil changed every 3500-4000 miles, even though i'm sure it would make it to 5k with no issues. This is my first Subaru and it won't be my last!
