2010 Subaru Impreza Sport 2.5i gas from North America
Disposable car, barely worth the hassle
Power steering hose leak. Took a month for a new one to arrive.
Front crank seal continuously pops out. I've replaced it twice, and got the dealership to do it once (middle of winter and no garage), where I was accused of not installing the seal properly (journeyman millwright, I've done hundreds of seals in every size and shape).
Gear grind when downshifting to 4th (been driving stick for 15 years, I know how to shift).
Never going back to that dealership again.
Excellent handling, especially in the snow. All around fun to drive. Safe and practical. Somewhat easily accessible for repairs.
High maintenance car. Spark plugs every 50k. Trans and diff oil is pricey and doesn't seem to last as long as it should. Most parts are pricey and you can only get them from dealerships.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
