Great family car for colder climates.

My car drives really well in the snow and rain. I love that it is all wheel drive even though it means that we get less gas mileage. It is extremely safe and versatile in that we can load it up with things we need to transport and take it on long family trips. It is pretty low to the ground, so it has a tendency to scrape at times. The seat warmers in the front seats are great for our colder climate. The Bluetooth connection to my phone is also amazing and we love listening to a variety of things in the car while being able to take calls without taking our eyes off of the road.

- Emily B

That she is a Subaru and has an owner who is super loyal to the Subaru brand!

I love my Impreza so much; she has terrific handling and great acceleration for a small car with a 4 cylinder engine. Plus she's great in the snow with AWD. My first car ever was a 1993 Impreza (she was totaled in 2006); after that, I had a Corolla but was never happy again until I finally got another Impreza. The only thing I would change about her is the gas mileage; it isn't the best (low 20s) but if I have to choose between mileage and performance, I will stick with performance as my commute is a short one so it's not like I'm using a lot of gas to begin with.

- Amy D

The Subaru Impreza is a reliable car which includes the must-have AWD for anywhere with snow.

I have been very happy with my Subaru. A big portion of that attitude comes from the company. I purchased the vehicle certified, pre-owned. There have been a few issues which have arisen since then, but the dealership has taken care of them all without any fuss. The standard options on the vehicle are decent and I get good fuel economy. Most importantly, I feel safe whenever I'm driving. The standard AWD feature that all Subarus have is so nice. When it snows, I don't have to worry about traction.
