no car is perfect and i made a poor choice for myself.

it's not that it's "awful". it is slightly better than the cars i tested but, coming from a 3.0r it's a down-grade in certain respects.

i had to make a choice with the 3.0r, it was at the end of it's lease. last winter it was showing signs of piston slap and i'm not keeping a car with "potential" problems.

on the bright side the impreza does corner real well even with 3 in the car and stock tires on.

should've gotten a wrx or a lgt for the power.

oh well........should've, would've, could've............too bad
