Who says a wagon can't be sporty? by Brian from Colorado on 08/19/2008. Trim: 2006 Subaru Impreza Wagon 2.5i, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I love how it handles and engine is powerfull enough to keep up with most wrx's. Lots of storage space and the gas mileage is better than it's rating(+/- 34MPG HWY and 25 city and I don't baby it!). Easy to upgrade, especially suspension parts. Insurance on the 2.5i wagon is CHEAP but the car is faster than any non-turbo car in it's class!
Cons: Rear leg room for an adult is limited but for kids and car seats there is plenty of room! Paint scratches easier than other cars I've owned.
Overall review: I've owned this car since Dec 2005 and it has only had one minor glitch with the engine computer which was fixed quickly and I haven't had any other problems since!! Upgrad the springs with USDM STI pink springs (~$200) and a sti style 21mm rear swaybar(~$120) and you can hang with a wrx or sti through a moutain pass without sacrificing ride quality. Great car, tons of fun to drive and very reliable!
