The stereo isn't the greatest, and the carpeting could be of better quality. Rear visibility is terrible, and the pillars make for some huge blind spots.

Y'all be careful out there!

i love the wagon on my street we are all turbo me and 2 other neighbors are WRX 2 sedan 1 wagon(me) 2 evos and rest SRT and between the evos and wrx i get more attention due to the fact its a wagon out in chicago land the wagon is a hott ticket if u can get one i just baught mine yesterday(friday) for 16,500 with 36K and alot of extras. i personally think the wagon is a strong contender with style looks and performance and best of all nuff room for broads* unlike in the sedan

No trunk release on the keyfob, and like others said, huge blindspots in the rear. A roof rack that holds more than 100 lbs would be nice, too.

The little lights on the climate controls (A/C on/off indicator and recycle indicator) are very difficult to see in the daytime. Maybe because I'm tall, I dunno. I suspect that issue is not limited to wagons, however.

Performance wise I have had no issues. Then again, I don't drive very spirited, either. The occasional fast highway merge or 'get out of my way' passing, but my wagon is primarily a sporty camping/hiking/skiing/mountain biking transport system.

The black interior, and the black paint. As amazing as my car looked when it was new, anything BLACK makes a little dust look like a giant eyesore... Black carpets are IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean. Black paint is VERY hard to keep shiny.

The bottom front lip of the new front end on the 06... It sticks out too much, and i have bottomed out a zillion times... I want to get it repainted. but if i do, i'll just bottom out 2 months later.

Other than that, few complaints. AC is cold. my stereo system SLAMS, my friends think it's cool (yay for gaining respect because of your car! ), and I like how it drives.

The stereo and seats. The 06 seats just don't feel right. I have to lean back farther than i want to get comfortable and if i don't i feel like i'm leaning forward. Its hard to explain, i came from a VW R32 and i was in the seat in that car. This car it feels like the seats just feels off, like the front of the seat could come up a few inches to help out the feel or where your ass is could go in a little more. The stereo is definately sucking, i'm sure a new head unit will help out alot.

1 more thing, the idiots that think because you have a subaru WRX you will race at the drop of a hat off the line or anywhere else. not just wagon based i guess.

That it doesn't turn into a transformer and talk to me

seriously though....any complaints I have would not be limited to the wagon, issues like paint and such are equally annoying for all, but a fob automatic hatch opener would be the sex.... maybe a good project my next could weekends.

Visibility out the back side (rear pillar).

Wonderful car to drive though

I love my wagon, of all the cars I have owned, it is my favorite by an awful lot (V6 Accord, 350z, Ford Ranger, Datsun 510, Prelude, 2 Saturn SL2s, Chevy Blazer, 2 Chevettes, Ford Escort, 1970 VW Fastback).

The fact that my wagon was shipped without a hatch and the rear glass too close to the back seat. They completely screwed up and gave me a trunk too! Hell, it doesn't even look like a wagon.

~~Quentin <-- hates the fact that the 2.5RS never came as a wagon and was forced to get a sedan.

Now that I have about 3K on her, I'd say rattles (doors, hatch area), handling (wish it were sharper) and that odd sensation of driving around in Ultraman's head...

What annoys me? The fact that there is no STI variant of the wagon.
