Avoid all Imprezas!!!
Engine head gasket leaked at 95,000 miles.
Engine developed a bad rod knock at 100,000 miles (replaced engine).
CV boots have torn repeatedly.
Window regulator failed at 80,000 miles.
Struts began leaking at 60,000 miles.
Steering column coupler failed at 50,000 miles.
Makes a loud grinding noise from engine that no one can diagnose at 102,000 miles.
Alternator failed at 90,000 miles.
Knock sensor failed at 75,000 miles.
Oxygen sensor failed repeatedly.
Very poor build quality-something is always breaking down. If you must have a Subaru, avoid Imprezas and buy a Legacy ($).
Fair fuel economy.
Engine performance is pretty good for a 2.2L (when it runs), and the AWD system is great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
