2007 Subaru Impreza 1.5
Wish it was a diesel
Clutch thrust bearing now noisy, gearbox bearings now noisy as well.
Petrol tank way too small, but space underneath is limited, and for a small 4x4 it's thirsty.
Sun visor gaps.
High load lip for an estate car.
Still an expensive car to run and tax.
Easy to drive, and easy to change the oil and oil filter.
Headlamp bulbs are a whole different matter. Not much legroom in the back, but it will do for short journeys.
Carpets are not very good; too thin.
Speakers made from rice paper.
Dead easy to get in and out of with the windows down.
Tyre wear OK; 2 on the front so far.
Very good traction; grippy in the wet.
Full sized spare wheel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
