    2009 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

    $5000 Surprise!

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Blown engine at 5,000 miles

    One of the reasons anyone buys a car like this is for performance - 305bhp never looked so good! The car has 4 doors , a decent trunk and 'its a Subaru' - which I thought meant reliable. 1000 miles to run it in , so take it easy. Then service and oil change - after this 4,000 miles of brilliant driving. The problem is - thats all you get. After just over 5K the pistons (#2 & #4) blow. The cost - $5,000+. Subaru is in denial , and the press have not picked up the story. The internet is littered with owners that have had to deal with this - almost exactly as above. Should be / could be a great car. But $5K more on list makes a BMW 335i very attractive!

    2010 Subaru Forester

    Unresolved Noise

    Pros: Sits up higher than my previous auto (sedan)

    Cons: Refer to review comments.

    I hear a 'clunking' type sound whenever I start my forward acceleration. It sounds like it is coming from the rear of the vehicle but the dealer service manager says it is the ABS computer under the hood and that it is common to this vehicle. I frankly do not believe that. It is proving to be very annoying, leading me to be completely dissatisfied with the car. I would not own another one.

    2010 Subaru Forester

    Almost Great

    Pros: Handling and AWD

    Cons: Under powered by 25/30 hp.

    This car is wonderful to drive and handles like a BMW at times. Problem without Turbo auto is a bit under powered even with the manual 5 speed. Still for a short wheel base it feels great, stops on a dime and is very balanced. Low center of gravity and AW keeps auto glued to ground. Best car for the money in its class. First Subaru but won't be the last.

    2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

    Buyer's remorse

    Pros: The handling

    Cons: everything but the handling

    Don't get me wrong, this car is a lot of fun to drive. However, considering the price, the quality is very poor. There are a lot of squeaks, the paint scratches extremely easily, I've had problems with the fuel door. The overall interior materials are cheap. The metal is cheap. The car feels cheap.
