    2004 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: handling

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

    Advice: The only thing better is next year's model!

    Best car I have ever driven. Excellent handling. No matter what corner lies ahead this car can take it.

    2006 Subaru Legacy - 2.5i Limited (A4) Wagon

    Pros: Dual moonroof

    Cons: Power locks - they are reverse from what you would think it would be logically (but you get used to it)

    Advice: Get it, you won't be sorry.

    This is a review for the 2006 2.5i Limited with manual transmission. I have had this car for almost two weeks. I have driven it almost 1,000 miles in that time. I have been on the freeway, highway, side streets, and dirt roads. Up hill going fast and uphill going slow (due to conditions). This is just an excellent vehicle. If you are NOT towing anything or hauling particularly heavy loads, I don't know why anyone would opt for the turbo or V6 with the higher gas prices and lower MPG. On a four hour trip which was mostly freeway and about 60% of the trip was at speeds of 75 mile an hour (or slightly higher : )) I averaged 30.0 MPG. Can you beat that for a car like this?

    2006 Subaru Outback - 3.0R L.L. Bean Edition (A5) Wagon

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Very limited storage in the front passenger areas

    Advice: Test drive both the XT limited with the turbo and the 3.0 with the V6 before you buy. Both are good but for different reasons.

    We drove this Subaru along with a Toyota Rav4 V6, Nissan Murano, and Honda CRV. The Subaru drove the most like a car, which is what we wanted. Handles curves well, very fun to drive. The LL Bean Edition provides the kinds of things you would like in an upscale wagon: V6, leather, heated seats, and even windshield wiper defrosters. The automatic tranmission is a bit twitchy when the air is on, but that can be remedied by going into 'sports shift' mode, which allows you to do clutchless shifting. If you want the utility of an SUV but the ride of a car, test drive this car with this trim (or 2.5XT Limited wagon)

    2005 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Wagon

    Pros: Symmetrical all-wheel drive

    Cons: lack of 'standard' features

    Advice: don't pay more than sticker

    Have only test driven this car (will buy later this year). It's been quite a few years since I had to give up my turbo RX-7, and I figured it was time to step into a fast car again. The blend of function and speed made this car appear quickly on my list. This car was very responsive, quick, no lean on tight curves, and a stupid smile quickly appeared on my face. Cons: for the cost of the base model, you don't even get the spoiler or sunroof (my VW Golf has heated seats and a sunroof), also, the road noise is much worse than the impreza RS. Thirdly, I think the fog lights should be standard and I'm not all that impressed with the design of the back end. Pros: FAST, with LOTS of torque (compare with the more-expensive RX-8). Also, while the RX-8s and mustangs of the street will be stuck at home in inclement weather, this all wheel drive - low center of gravity beast will be flying through the snow and mountain passes. If I have to give up some creature comforts for the advanced performance and engineering, I think it's worth it.

    2006 Subaru Outback - 2.5XT Limited w/Charcoal Interior (M5) Wagon

    Pros: 250 HP

    Cons: 19-24 mpg

    Advice: Get the 2.5 XT

    Excellent handling in the snow and rain. AWD, Comfortable leather seats. Huge sunroof, dual climate control, heated seats, Navigation. Loaded. Tested other cars with all of these options but they were thousands more. I also had tinted privacy windows, and self-dimming rearview mirror, and a trailor hitch installed. The turbo really propels this car! Great for New England weather..
