Picked up an '05 WRX Sportwagon with 33K for a pretty good deal. Drives very civilized under 4000 RPM's, but hit the throttle beyond that and you will have a wide grin on your face all the way up to about 7000 RPM's. Suspension is very tight but forgiving thanks to the 16" wheel/tire combo. I'd imagine '06 and up with 17" wheels is a little more firm due to low pro tires. My only advice is if you're looking for a WRX, stick with lower mileage ones if possible. I test drove quite a few and some were alot more rough than others with similiar mileage. Owners usually drive these cars hard as that is what they are meant to do. Don't take an owners word for it that its been "babied" because chances are its had more than a few spirited outings. I ended up going to a local Subaru dealer and finding one with a facrtory warranty still remaining because I didn't want to have any "surprises".
High mileage vehicle. Smooth ride. Good gas mileage. Great body style. Lots of room when the seats are laid down. My dog rides back there and loves it
Originally I was driving a 20-year-old Jeep. I really liked the 4WD capability in particular, not to mention the engine power, raised up ride and the extra hauling capacity. But when it died I was left to make the choice of economy vs size. I think for my lifestyle the Impreza hatchback was a great fit. With this car the most noticeable advantage is the mpg. I think it would be hard to find another vehicle with this kind of great fuel economy that has such an excellent AWD system. I initially thought I'd sacrificed cargo space but in reality hatchbacks have space versatility and volume that's comparable to most compact SUVs. The only difference is that they sit lower to the ground - which was a hard decision for me to make too in this.
