So great! I did a lot of research before buying and had been looking for a small hatchback with some get up and go. It was down to the Impreza or a rabbit. In fairness to the rabbit, we didn't even test-drive it we loved the Impreza so much. Good handling, fast, fairly fuel efficient, comfortable - all round, really good. Only complaint - no aux input even though they say there should be one. Really such a tiny complaint - not really even worth adding, but you feel like you have to offer some constructive criticism with these things!
Its a Subaru
2008 Subaru ImprezaDoug - Missouri12/02/2009
We've owned Subarus before. Nothing luxurious or flashy about them. Just great cars that are a good value and good in the snow and run forever without any mechanical problems to speak of. And isn't that enough to make you want to own one?
I was very happy to acquire this car as they are relatively rare. This model has a much smoother ride and less noise than previous years which surprised me. I was expecting a rigid racer style car, but this car delivers much more. The performance is amazing and this car grips the road like you would not believe. I feel very safe in rain and snow. The mileage could be better, but I think for the performance it is better than most of the competition. I get 20-21 when i'm driving like a child and 24-26 when I drive casually or am on a long freeway trip. The interior is somewhere between luxury and cheap. Some parts feel well made and others are questionable. The mesh seats are surprisingly comfortable and there is plenty of room in the back areas for tall people. My only complaints are the stereo and road noise. I think the road noise is mostly coming from my tires, but I wont be able to find out for sure until I change them. The speakers are fine for most people, but I am somewhat of an audiophile and enjoy super high quality music with a great range of sound which is why the system did not impress me. All in all I love this car!
It’s tough to cross paths with a sporty Subaru and not marvel at its looks, sounds, and performance. Fortunately, there’s no better time to be in the market for a used Subaru. These vehicles are quick and attractive cars, and the Subaru WRX — also known as the Impreza — is a solid choice for anyone seeking a rewarding drive.
Henry Ford once famously told customers that his Model T came in any color they wanted, so long as that color was black. That was over 100 years ago. Today, the vehicles available to us come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, with a profusion of available options and features. Whether you're shopping for a quality used vehicle, or you want to take the plunge with a new car, 2017 is a great time to see what's available.
