I will probably not buy another Impreza. Poor paint quality, mediocre interior finish, and the worst offense: Subaru are going the WRONG direction in their development, giving little or not thought to fuel consumption. The hybrid-STi murmurs are meaningless when Honda have had a hybrid V6 for years now, and when Honda, Toyota, and Ford have all offered a variety of hybrid vehicles.
If (rather, iff) Subaru manage to fix at least one of the major flaws above, I might consider it (though frankly they are also getting expen$ive). I wrote them a love letter praising them on their paint quality already, and I am sure others have let them know too. I can just wait and see at this point.
