This bug-eyed bomb can really scoot through corners with amazing, near-neutral poise. Downshift into second, set the front tires with mild (or wild) decel into the apex, mash the throttle and power through in a four-wheel drift to the outside, no muck, no muss, no WTF*^%s. Wherever the road turns, you really do feel like you are no longer in an economy car! Love it!

This car has served me well in the 10 years I have owned it. 170k and counting. Still gets good gas mileage and reliable commuter car. Hauls quite a bit in the hatchback. Love the AWD. This is my second Subaru and I would consider Subaru for my next vehicle

Very reliable

by from New York, NY on March 19, 2017

Great all around car. The interior is very basic, no sunroof on the wrx model. But the car made great power, is great in all weather and decently reliable. Parts are also affordable.

I just bought this car when it turned 14 yrs old for $4000 when it had 160,000 on it. The engine sounds beautiful and it drives fairly well. The automatic transmission shifts a tiny bit bumpily, and the steering is a little stiff. However, I plan to keep this car going for another 100,000 miles. I'll probably need a new tranny in the next two years, but I'm pretty sure it will be worth the investment.

Wrx best car I have ever had by far

Never had a car this reliable. The awd system is the best even by the standards of cars/tricks made in 2012. Very easy to tune. The simple suspension set up makes upgradeding vary easy to understand and even do yourself. Many people don't know is that the impreza had a roll bar from the factory so it's safety is also excellent. The 16 inch wheels are standard. The rim sizes makes tires replacement cheap and simple with endless choices and still gives enough sidewall for a comfortable ride mixed with expert handling. One knock on subarus is under steer but its great for a easy to handle car. You will never spin out of control. It can be easily corrected with added swaybars

These cars are alot of fun and very capable on dry roads and snowy roads. Here in Colorado, it seems like every thrid car on the road is a Subaru. It's that way for a good reason. They're great all weather cars. The WRX has great seats, lots of power, and the handling is pretty secure. The only well documented weakness in these cars is the transmission syncros, which can make shifting a little noisy and uncomfortable. Otherwise, it's a great car!

I had the pleasure of driving a WRX daily for 7 years. The best thing about the car is simply that it was fun to drive with its turbo-boosted acceleration and AWD handling. Not to mention it looked great and was fuel-efficient, averaging 23 mpg and maxing at 27 mpg on the highway. Finding parking was easy as it could slip into tight spaces with ease. My WRX was extremely reliable with no major repairs necessary. Not to mention, I never had to pay a penny for regular services, thanks to the generous 3% rewards points from purchases made on my Subaru Mastercard.
