"Had my WRX Premium for 2 years today. It's been a great car. Driven spirited, I get 22 mpg in town and have seen 30 mpg hwy. Really. Am wondering if the additional $ spent for an STi would be worth it. Plenty fast and still compliant in daily driving. My complaints: Stereo is just so-so; shifter, even with OEM short-throw installed, is still not really a short throw; sheet metal is pretty thin; and factory tires (Potenza)are horrible. But I like this car a lot."
"i have owned my 2009 impreza wrx sedan for 9mos now and only had one issue wich the dealership fixed promptly (paint had a factory blemish on the tailgate). the car is very well balanced and with the right driver behind the wheel will devastate cars with almost double the price tag. i love my wrx dont even consider not buying one"
"Very uncomfortable on trips of any length. Definitely not up to Subaru standards in terms of AWD reliablility--rear end gives way in light snow, front end very easily hydroplanes (we have a Subaru Forrester and never had any of these issues). Paint easily chips and scratches--rust after only two years. Plastic bumpers very cheap."
