- Fuel economy, interior fit/finish, AWD, overall value
- road noise
Purchased As New
I have 27k miles in first 8 months and have averaged 33mpg. in 30/70% city/highway driving. No issues with reliability. Interior is well laid out and easy to use-though the red dash lights take a few days to get used to. The CVT acts predictably once you learn its quirks-it won't be an issue after you get used to it if you are used to a normal auto. If you really must have more power-they do sell a turbocharged WRX model-I still pass everyone I want to-not sure what the complaints about that are about-it's not a sports car. Overall the Impreza is a nice package of reliability, economy and value....read morehide

- MPG, Size, AWD
Purchased As New
• MPG – averaging 30 MPG (mostly highway 70 MPH)
• All Wheel Drive
• Mid size car
• Reasonably priced @ $21,500 for premium with all
• Smooth ride, seats are comfortable
• Slightly sluggish at takeoff, but not an issue for me
• Slightly louder engine until the car warms up due to
continuous variable transmission (CVT – automatic).
I got used to this very quickly and don’t notice now.
• Sirius stereo not an available option. I will need to
go to Best Buy, etc.
• Dashboard electronics/gauges seem dated, but are
• Average MPG slightly skewed. Total miles driven for
Trip divided by gallons purchased = 1.5 MPG less. Still
great MGP, no complaints....read morehide

- Fuel Economy, Style, Comfort
- it has a seatbelt beeper
Purchased As New
It's peppy, looks great but most surprisingly it really comfortable for a car it's size. I'm 6' tall and I've got wiggle room inside, and it fits all my friends as big as 6' 2" in the back seat. It drives through Maine snow like nothing I've ever owned including trucks. I drive about 1,000 miles per month and the gas mileage average is 30.9. I do a lot of mixed driving on back roads, city, and short (only several miles) highway trips. City mileage is overestimated by much. Highway mileage is underestimated by much. I get about 20 city, and I almost always get 42 highway. On back roads I get about 35. I can see why big city people complain about the mileage, but the highway mileage is just fantastic. Here's a couple tips for better mileage. Use cruise on the highway. Use the paddle shifter to upshift when going downhill to stop that annoying over rpm that supposed to 'anticipate' and assist stopping. The seatbelt beeper sucks total ass so I'm buying a seatbelt extender to leave plugged in, or if your dealer will adjust the computer to shut it off then have them do it. Buy the premium stereo or you will have to replace all of the lower model stereo speakers because of the awful sound quality. I bought alpine speakers for $300 installed and it was night and day sound wise and that saved me $700 over the premium system. I knew about the sound before I bought it. Also, get the heated seats and mirrors. They are very much worth the money. My gf loves the car too. Next time, I'm springing for the moon roof. I really love the car. I'll love it more when the moronic seatbelt chime is dealt with....read morehide
