Used Subaru Impreza 2.5i Premium for Sale
Reviews for Subaru Impreza
Who'd though driving a wagon would be so fun ! ? !
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".
2006 WRX Wagon
We test drove ours and fell in love. Went with the wagon over the sedan b/c the back seats in the 2006 sedan don't fold down and we didn't want to have to put everything on a rack (snowboards, bikes, etc). It's easier to just fold down the seat in the wagon and throw them in. The biggest drawback on this vehicle is the gas mileage, which is expected with all wheel drive and the WRX engine, but it still sucks. Also, with the WRX, you have to get at least mid-grade gas. Ouch. Overall, we love our Subaru. It handles great and is so fun to drive. We never get nervous about winter road conditions here in Vermont with this beast.
A great car
This is a really nice little car that handles great in any weather and gets great gas mileage, especially for an AWD. I expected it to be better in snow - but I had not realized what a great car it is in heavy rain and flooding. Handles great, love all the extras in the sport model.
