my sister just "moved down" to a 07 matrix from a honda odyssey. she said she felt the same for a while. maybe i need more time with it and some good windy roads.
the only aspects i really don't like are the hard plastics inside and the lack of "thrust". as i said before it is a very good car for a young first time subaru owner. it has some very good under-pinnings and very good highway ride with more comfy seats than the 04 wrx i had. i also don't like the "traction control" ass flying around (on the snow pack only)
i'm not an audiophile but i think the stereo w/10 speakers and sub-woofer are kick-ass for oem.
i also like the looks of the car especially when next to other cars in the parking lot. steering wheel feels real good but, the buttons could be a little bigger.
i did test drive the 08 wrx auto and loved it's smooth pickup but, in the end i decided to save money and get the obs.
btw - i went to my dealer and asked how much it would cost to get out of this lease and get into another with the 3.0r. it was roughly $5,000. the new imprezas have the best depreciation numbers when "plugged in" to the formula.
and NO! there are no plans for jdm rims or any others for this car. i'm done with that fiasco.
