Surprisingly, pre-02 brochures list the mileage for the 2.5 RS as almost the same as the 2.2 Imprezas. But the new 02 2.5 models list a couple miles worse mileage than previous 2.5s.
Was the mileage given in past years incorrect, or is the new model less efficient?
I'd like a new Subaru, but high mileage is a priority--last year's 2.2 and 2.5 models were acceptable, but if the numbers don't lie, this year's 2.5 is getting into a realm I want to avoid.
Any comments, or 02 vs. previous comparisons? I did note in a thread below that it is possible to beat the listed mileage estimate, so Subaru is not out of the running for my next car yet.
