2009 Subaru Impreza WRX

Subaru WRX
I brought this car in early 2011 as a commuter ,thought it would be fun to have a stick shift again as i was the only driver.
I wasn't in love with the front end styling to begin with but the more i have looked at it and watched other WRX's come and go ,i have decided that it has a cool look,how can you go wrong with a turbo intake that shouts I've got power catch me if you can...match that with its performance and you have a stylish fast car..with room for the family or friends.
Several people have said that the rear seats are very comfortable..that was on an 8hr drive.
so it goes like a rocket ,it looks good and its been trouble free..
what more could you ask for..
not to much" but "
i wish it had power seats..at least the drivers..the system on it works but it lacks the refinement i have enjoyed in my other vehicles.
The stereo is ok but again lacks.. especially bass..that was easily corrected with a 10"sub in the trunk..alas i now have less usable space in the trunk.
For the price tag of this vehicle new or used it should have all the bells and whistles.
You have the ability to jack in your mobile music devise but its in the arm rest ..should have been in the stereo.
i understand the body is very light weight but the doors closing and the sun visor hitting the roof when closed give you the effect of being in a tin can.
My only other improvement would be for a little more bark in the pipes.
Even with its undesirables once you start driving..especially if you can find a road with corners!!
Its so much fun to drive.
Don't take my word go test drive one and enjoy.

2010 Subaru Impreza WRX

Trim: Limited Hatchback
by mikeautos on 10-13-2012
Great All Around Ride
I leased this car new in 2010 and would rate it as the best vehicle I have ever owned. It was a 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX Limited with the 5-Speed Manual Transmission.

I owned it for 2.5 years and put on 50,000 km. I replaced or repaired nothing in that time.

The engine had great response and the transmission, while not the best out there, engaged smooth enough and never missed a gear. The AWD system was flawless in the dry, wet and snow.

The interior is not the best and the radio is quite bad, but at least the front seats were comfortable. With the rear seats folded, the hatchback could hold quite a lot of gear.

As a bonus, the car returned decent gas mileage for a 265 hp AWD hatchback.

2012 Subaru Impreza WRX

Trim: Limited 4 Doors
by MyFatMiyagiSan on 10-12-2012
Best Sport Sedan under $35k
It's a terrific car! I just love it. Has a lot of power, AWD system is the best, It's not an eco fuel efficient, but if you're looking for power, turbo, reliability I will highly recommend this one.
I own a 4 doors with a lot of room, 2 baby cars seats inside (because it's family friendly) as a regular home Dad, but it can turn from no where to a beautiful fast road carving machine, 0-100 under 5s, many sport cars will envy the performance of my WRX.
The best part came in the winter, when normally all sport cars are parked under a garage (because in Edmonton, Ab. we get a lot of snow) this one not, AWD system handle wherever you are, it has all my respect when snow driving condition came, it just handle..... AMAZING!
