    2015 Subaru Impreza - (CVT) Hatchback

    This is the most comfortable car I have ever driven; additionally, it handles better than any other car I've driven in the past 30 years. I am a State Trooper and have driven a number of police package full-size sedans

    2005 Subaru Impreza

    Dependable, sporty

    Pros: sport wagan style

    2009 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: Toss up: auto-dimming mirror with compass or remote start

    Cons: Basic sound system is a joke. Needs sport exhaust--can barely hear revs for precise down-shifting.

    Advice: Be prepared to drive like a saint or pay the piper. The hood scoop might as well be a flag.

    Caution: when you're driving a WRX, remember to breathe. Love, love, love. Owning a WRX leads to what I call the WRX sneer--the destorting effect of an ear-splitting grin at high accelleration. It's an AWD 265hp turbo wagon that corners like a go-cart--the perfect car for a New England woman in the music business. Great cargo space/rear seating arrangement that hauls five grownups with decent head and leg room or about a dozen djembes, or three cellos, or ten guitar cases or, with 60/40 split seats, any combination of all these. I happily do a lot of the driving :) for about any event...anywhere. A high speed hairpin corner is easy--just downshift and hit the gas--with AWD, that turbo digs in like a cutting pony. More power would just be silly--so the STI is for gearheads if you ask me. My friend who drives a Porsche felt the need to defend his car after driving my WRX. 'Nuf said. He did win a single point from me about transmissions. The WRX 5-speed is geared well, but it feels a bit primitive and slow to me. Hope it breaks in a bit smoother. An overdrive or some kind of 'Highway' gear would be quiet enough for any kind of music even with a performance exhaust, and very green too. Since Subaru is synonymous with New England, the auto climate should have a 'Parka' setting. Picky, picky. This is a nimble, exciting sports car. It has a remarkable safety record, legendary road worthiness, is actually affordable, comfortable, and offers solid resale value because it's a Subaru.

    2002 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: traction, snow

    Cons: unreliable, costly repetitive repairs on wheel bearing and head gasket

    Advice: dont buy subaru, buy toyota or something reliable, by friend the mechanic loves subaru, gues why?

    I an surprised how poorly the quality control is for subaru. at 15k it needed a new clutch, at 20k it needed a new head gasket, at 10k it needed a new rear wheel bearing, the same replaced bearing needed replacement at 50k, also at 50k it needed new rear knuckles at a price of 600$. now at 55k both rear struts are totally shot, to make matters worse, these are all widley known problems with subaru impreza for years, yet the company doesnt care. been to the dealer many times, never given a loaner car, had to pay for a cab for weeks.

    Pros: handling

    Cons: cup holder are too small. only fits size for a regular coke can
