Impreza appreciation' painless introduction to a new brand of car.
My 2010 impreza runs smoothly, accelerates evenly, starts readily and as my first subaru has made a convert of me. . I do not like how low the driver sits, having been . Spoiled by a Toyota previa. But the car feels safe, and has come through a few fender-benders(mostly caused by others) with surprisingly little damage. I have had the car for roughly 3 years, and it probably got better gas mileage before it got to me, but it runs so smoothly that I will not complain. . I'm comfortable with the design of the front end and sides, but do not like the back side of the hatch, particularly the lights. The seats are reasonably comfortable and supportive, particularly considering how low they are to the floor assembly. . I'm told the catalytic converter has begun to self-digest and will require replacing sometime this year or next. [they originally said it would happen last year or this, but I stopped traveling to the family place in stowe, vt to keep it going as long as possible. As it will be wise to replace it at the point, and my former husband/still-friend will replace it for me. Likely a much newer, safety-featured-equipped one. Either japanese or chevrolet. I have liked the interior, the appealing curves of the upholstery, organization of the instrument cluster and dashboard. Possible distracting reflections from the dashboard are well prevented. The fabric has held onto its cleanly appearance very well despite challenges from 2 labradoodles.
