    I agree with the AWD statement...
    Most people who have owned an AWD, be it a talon, wrx, evo, rav4 or whatever, will tell you AWD is the way to go...

    Evo's tend to spend a lot of time in the shop, and are expensive to maintain.

    I was in the market for an STi, but the crapiness of subaru dealer salesmen pushed me away from buying an STi. It was almost as if they didn't want me to buy one of their subaru's.

    proper driving style doesnt remedy turbo lag, lag is lag(its still there no matter how u drive it). Thats like saying a Honda 4 cylinder has plenty of low end torque if you floor it, it just doesnt make sense.
    Your second suggestion works very well tho.

    I'm trying to work on repairing my credit, paying off all my debts, and driving my POS Suzuki till I can afford to buy a subaru, new or used.

    I guess I failed to convey my point. If driven correctly, the lag is a non-issue, and if you replace uppipe and downpipe with aftermarket components, the lag is practically non-existent. Make more sense?

    Nice choice. Has it proven to be reliable?

    my uncle has an 01 330Ci. it felt fast, 'til my WRX went Stage 2, then it just felt extremely slow. contrary to popular belief, including mine, it's been damn reliable.

    Yeah, it's the "conventional wisdom" about it that spurred my question. I love teh Bimmer's and Porsche's, etc....someday I'll drum up the courage to own one.

    "courage" is the right word. the way they're all wired up these days, it seems like German cars start going kablooey very early these days, and i don't have *that* much money to dump in my car. those parts come from Germany!

    i blame it on the "lease". people lease luxury cars instead of buying them; and why not, you get a nicer car for the same price, look a lot richer than you are, and get a new car every few years. makes German automakers think that their electronics only need to last 3 or 4 years...

    Then, when you sit in traffic, even on a cool day... heat soak makes the car lag still. Sure, you can coat and heat wrap the pipes, but then that is more money you have to spend. (and if its not done proplerly, that will lead to premature failure of the pipe) Also, at this point, whether or not it will pass smog becomes an issue... if you run catless, you have the smell and the worry that a cop will look down below and see no cat. (not very likely, but the thought is always there) SURE, you can just get a front mount to avoid heat soak, but it costs a lot, then if you get into an accident and you die cuz you chopped up/ replaced the bumper beam... then you really wouldnt be complaining anymore cuz you're dead, lol.

    Now, lag really isnt an issue anymore since they went to the 2.5L... and knowing Subaru, they've secretly fixed whatever problems there were without telling anyone. (what about previous owners who could use the fix?!?!?!) So, the new models are probably quite amazing compared to my piece of carp. I just cant stand that they have potentially hazardous problems and they do not fix them.

    Lets see, there's 5 that come to mind... Weak, underspec'd Transmission, Leak Prone Radiator, Leaking Fuel Lines, Leaking Oil Filter, and Paint chipping off the Coolant Filler Tank clogging up the system. All are major issues, yet customers were not informed of the fixes... instead, it was secretly updated in the newly built models... this is my major issue with the brand. I know Toyota had a problem recently and they bought back every car that potentially had that problem! I want a car company that actually cares... or doesn't care, but actually builds great cars that last forever.
    Yes, that is me in my avatar! Kid's don't try this at home.

    You know, I have specific criticisms but I think the Impreza is a great car, especially in the US where it is not taxed too badly. I enjoy driving mine too. Still, I like to complain and feel I have some legit gripes.
