I have been driving Honda's since'03, mostly coupes but a couple hatches as well. I had just bought a Civic coupe and then my wife got pregnant with our 2nd child a month later. We ended up moving to VT shortly thereafter and while my Civic was a great car it just couldn't carry the whole family comfortably. I decided that I wanted a wagon and given our location, awd would be nice too. I love Honda, but they couldn't give me what I wanted and stay within my budget.
One day I saw an '06 Impreza 2.5i wagon at a used car lot and liked it. I test drove it and also an '03 wrx wagon, the wrx had been abused and neglected so I took the 2.5i. I miss the fuel efficiency of my Civic but enjoy driving my Impreza a lot more.
