Summary:

What an awesome car!

Faults:

Basically, I can't say that things have gone WRONG with the car... I have just done the maintenance services:

Replaced all brakes.

Replaced CV Joints.

Replaced Rear Strut.

At 55,000 the water pump went out and damaged the timing belt... both were fixed under warranty!

Some kind of heat sensor thing went out about 10,000 miles ago.

The cup holder on this model is in an unfortunate location above the manual shifter... if you like coffee with sugar, some of the drink may get into the shifting mechanism and cause lock ups during cold weather... my brother disabled some part inside the shifting mechanism and now we don't have that problem any more!

General Comments:

What a car! My dad advised me to look into Subaru when I was 21... best purchase I could have made. The '93 Impreza is the first of this model and I am astonished at how well this car is doing, both mechanically as well as its paint job and interior appearance as well. I take no caution in recommending this model or make of car! In my opinion it is the ideal car for any woman (or guy), but particularly any woman because they are just so darn reliable!

Summary:

The car you can wreck 8 times and still drive like new

Faults:

Radio stopped working at 62000 miles.

Starter went out at 160000.

General Comments:

For a 93 this car is nice inside and almost like 2001. The cars power is a little weak since I don't have the turbo.

You can do anything with this car it will go anywhere you want, you can pull powerslides on a snow covered country road or drive 120 mph on any highway. It will take a corner like no other.

HAHAHA! I just wrote a review titled, "This car can TAKE a beating" Seriously, it performs perfectly in any and all situations. They do not make Subarus like this anymore!

Summary:

Every car you'll ever need!

Faults:

Absolutely nothing!

General Comments:

Yes, the car is very quick, but I feel to simply state that rather obvious facet is to miss the car's true principal feature; it's adaptability depending on situation and driving required. Poodle around town all day; why not. Blast along the highway; sure. Twisty country lanes; my favorite! Take your mum shopping, or the kids to school, or to a night club. She fits everywhere!
