I actually enjoy the softness of the 08, as I only use it to commute, but did want a bit more pickup than would have been available with just the base Impreza.
out of curiousity, what car were you coming from and how does your 08's handling compare? i've never driven the 08.

i guess it's not really fair for me to call the 09 'soft' - just feels softer than my 04. the suspension setup can certainly be a benefit for a daily driver and the 08 could be better still depending on your priorities. the 08 disappointed some enthusiasts but it seems subaru had other people in mind with that design. maybe like the kind of people driving through endless potholes to get to work.
