This is a drivers car. Don't buy it if you intend to drive like an old person, or are cheap and want the best fuel economy. This car is neither of those. If you want to drive a car that can out handle almost anything out there in the price range it's in, this is it. The is one thing you have to be careful of when you move to this car - the AWD is deceptively powerful and it can become easy to spin the car sideways in snowy conditions. It climbs hills that FWD and RWD cars would balk at. I've had to adjust my driving habits when I got this car, because it's really easy to speed and the handling is just tremendous.
If you ever get the chance to drive the legendary WRX STi, you should try it just once. That car is a super-car in my opinion and the speed of that car is incredible when compared to the base or WRX.
My only complaints about the car is as follows:
- Cheap radio
- Not much rear seat space
- Rear seats do not fold forward.
Other than that the car is perfect. People stop and stare when I drive by because there aren't many Subaru in my neck of the woods.
The car is a pignose style, and you either love it or hate it. Compared to the 2008 Model which is bland and boring, the 2007 has strong Rally roots.
Just look at the flared fenders and sweeping rear strokes down the back panels. You could just imagine the car doing the WRC circuit in Brazil. If you've never driven a Subaru you should really try it out - I love it!
