Pros: "fun to drive on hilly curvy backroads"

Cons: "the Brighton model has no A/C"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"As the Impreza Brighton does not have a listing on this site, I chose the most similar on the site menu as the place for my comments. I like hatchbacks and this one is still going strong after 15 years. Was terrific for outings into Canada, all seasons, the first decade owning it. Totally reliable as my means of relocating: driving alone through a major snow storm in Oregon, and inclement conditions on the Grapevine in Southern California. It then became my weekend surf wagon. The cargo space with a split seat to fold down is perfect. A tip I learned at an Independent Subaru shop long ago: replace the PCV every 40,000 miles or so, for optimal performance."

Very good car

Pros: "It had a great price,well below BB value!"

Cons: "The AWD doesn't work!! May be FrontWD!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I rated this car a 2 on value because I bought it as an AWD & it may turn out it's a FrontWD! I rated it a 2 on design because,while it's clean,it has tears on seats,which will require seat covers. Everything else rates very high: quality,reliability,comfort & convenience,& driving dynamics are all excellent! Overall,it's alot of fun to drive & I've had fun cleaning it up,washing,vacuuming,etc. Now,it's a very nice car,inside & out!"

Pros: "Fun to drive, corners as if on rails, loves winter"

Cons: "Limited legroom."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"ALWAYS starts. LOVES snow and rain. GREAT handling. EASY parking. SIPS gasoline. CHEAP TO KEEP. Kind of a Plain Jane, but literally leads the pack during a blizzard (during winters, my neighbors wait for me to make the way out of the alley here in the Milwaukee area). I love this car. Got another Subaru, our 3rd."
