The 3rd generation Integra for example was a great car and that's why I've owned 4 over the years. The Impreza falls short in my opinion.
But they ARE achievable!!!!! There's a ton of people meeting them! You're one of them actually! Subaru never said anywhere on their window sticker, "this car WILL get 36mpg highway" yet that's the only number you focus on. What about the 29-43 expected range for most drivers?!?!
