Damn, that car is majorly messed up. I can't believe how trashed it is. The driver must have been going seriously fast and flipped/rolled/slid through a pile of boulders or something.

I like to eat ants.


And here is what they had to say:

Road Testers Comments

The Impreza is totally over-rated the engine couldn't pull the skin off a Rice Pudding and hasn't got enough power to trouble the chassis.

The Four wheel drive system is useless and exhibits no grip what so ever when flying 10 feet off the ground.

The Brakes and ABS are complete rubbish, being unable to stop the car as as it slid on its roof through a field.

The Interior is somewhat compact and lacking in head room and boot space.

Air bags are a complete waste of time, this one threatened to suffocate me after only a minor shunt.

I have a friend theat totaled a '97 BMW M3 on a test drive. The sales man told him to hit the gas in a turn, and he did. The car slightly over steered, he corected, he said the car seemed settled, then headed over a curb and into a tree. This was in a slight drizzle after a rain. My friend is no strange to over steer as he has a 525 RWHP supra with a Tien suspention. The theory is that the active traction control was a little to active. Needless to say he cant buy a car at that dealership.

The only injury was a bump on the head and a few cuts. Walked away.

That is pretty good. My goal, if I ever get into an accident, is to mess up my car even worse than that one was. And that will be no mean feat

Ahh the English...
