The Subaru Impreza is one of the most reliable cars there is.

I went to the court anyway. I hope I will win and get rid of this car. My Subaru must be the least reliable car in the world. I can never know if the engine starts in winter or not.

Just bad luck.

Cold weather problems?...I live in New Brunswick, Canada. My 2006 Impreza has ALWAYS started! In three years, with our winters, that should say something. Subaru for life. Ask anyone in the North East USA/Canada, great winter/cold weather cars!

I am up in New Jersey, and I have no problem starting in cold weather, and it has dropped to -10 sometimes.

Hello everyone, I don't have a lot of problems with starting the engine. I live in New Jersey.

I do have a problem with cruise control and check engine light. My car has 27,000 miles on it and it's a lease. Cruise control light and check engine light went off at the same time, disabling the cruise control. I have taken to Subaru dealer; they fixed it saying that it's catalytic convert sensor, but the problem came back. It happened to me 3 times in the matter of two years... Can't wait to return the car at the end of the lease. Personally I would not get another Subaru again.

Long time Subaru owner here (07 Impreza). You can read my review here:


First of all, a 1.5L engine is not adequate to power an AWD vehicle. I'm not sure what the heck Subaru was thinking to offer such a weak vehicle in this region. 2.0L minimum, with at least 160 BHP and 125 ft-pounds of torque. I honestly don't understand how this car was sold, as the last 1.5L Impreza for export was only available until 2004.

Here in Canada the Impreza gets 173 BHP minimum. The WRX boosts it to 265 BHP, the STi 300+ BHP.

Maybe you should have gotten the WRX.
