My stuff usually isn't open to view. I have the retracting cover that I close unless what I'm carrying is so large that I need to remove the cover. And in those cases, what I'm carrying is so large that a sedan can't carry it, which is one reason I prefer hatchbacks in the first place. There are many times I carry cargo that's beyond a sedan's capabilities.

Parking on a slant has a HUGE affect on your oil level reading. Try to find a level place to park, and then try to always check your oil when parked in that same place. That will provide consistent results.

I always check my oil when my car is parked in my garage at home. No variability.

He has a 2013 there aren't many 2013 with oil consumption even more so cvt, most oil burners have been 2012 5 speeds either way he is beating the **** out of the car complaining about mpg, oil usage and ..... trolling trolling trolling
Man, bad mood or something? He wasn't complaining. He was offering his opinion based on buying and driving the car. He pretty clearly stated that he used the car a lot and was hard on ALL his vehicles. trolling???

This was before the fall of the economy....so the base we got still had CD/Radio, mud mats, truck mat, no money down, and the big deal for me, was no hubcaps. For under 18k we got 16 inch rims. The guy selling it to us said oh...Subaru doesn't sell cars with hubcaps now. Next gens did....lol. Economy tanked right before that. I don't know if that statement was even true, but I never saw a 2007 with hubcaps, they all had rims.

But anyhow...the base Impreza has turned into a soccer mom car, or snow vehicle in my mind. In my mind at one point I really looked at it as a sports car, because of the WRX....but since they have split up the base and WRX/STi models so drastically...something I feared they would do one day.....I don't think of the Impreza the same way at all anymore, shame for me I guess.... but oh well.
regardless of how close the base was to the wrx it was never a WRX or a STI or close to any other sports car. It was a commuter car just like it is today.

Nothing changed besides how you view the car.

It's not important, but 2008 was the first year of the previous-gen Impreza.
