I am a current 2000 Ford Focus owner. But moving into a small town and the Wisconsin winter this year, I am looking at a Subaru Impreza. Really want the WRX , but I am used to 30 mpg. My commute is about 80% highway. If it would get the 24MPG the EPA says, the additional fun will make up the rest. Otherwise the 2.5i will have to do.
I would be looking at a 08 WRX automatic. Yeah I know the manuals are better, but if you would see my foot and hand corrdination, you would say automatic.
Any feedback from the 2008 owners on the MPG and any feedback from the automatic owners would be great. And Autos are hard to get. One left in this state.
