Subaru Impreza: reliable car for an affordable price that will last for years.

The Subaru Impreza is incredibly reliable. It kept me safe during the winter months and snow. The car is very comfortable to drive and the seats are comfortable as well. The backseat is spacious enough for passengers. I have had my Subaru for 4 years now, and it still runs like new. The car did need some work last summer: new brakes and routers, and alignment. Overall, this has been my favorite car I have owned. With the all black interior, all-wheel drive, Bluetooth capabilities, power controller windows, it makes for a great car at a great, affordable price.

Subaru won't stand by their cars; be cautious.

My passenger side "seatbelt warning" goes off all the time without anyone in it. It has been inspected (at cost to ME) twice. Pretty annoyed that happened within my first year and it's somehow my fault / can't be found. I haven't had my car long enough to have long opinions, but the fact it's my responsibility to pay for and Subaru doesn't seem to care... makes me less than likely to buy another in the future. "Adding details really helps car buyers" -- that's your job, not mine.

The durability, conveniences and highly recommended because value and backed by dealership 100%

It's AWD which is necessary since i drive a long distance to work so It's reliable. The maintenance is minimal if you keep up with regular maintenance. Subaru's are considered one of the most reliable cars on the market. Also, I've owned a Subaru for over 35 years and the dealership is awesome when it comes to service and explaining what needs to be done and why but most of all they are friendly and show consideration to all their customers.
