Superb performance car, car of decade in 1999. High fuel consumption but i have my wife's diesel fabia for long or economy journeys. Live adjacent to north yorkshire mores and pennines where performance can be used and 4wd in the snow, mud & 30% hills. Problem with brakes was that after 16 years the pistons were sticking in callipers; ebc, the brake people refurbished them superbly and brakes now work again - i did brake maintenance. Brilliant local specialist garage do major servicing, champions of castleton, n yorkshire.

It is a 2.5ltr turbo with Ł475 annual RFL and 26mpg of premium fuel. So not cheap to run.

This my third impreza turbo. It has the prodrive pack on it which although performance is increased substantially it is more economical than the previous car. (previous one was sold at 104000 miles with no spend other than routine maintenance.

Ecellent exciting car, build quality could be better, but i did know exactly what i was buying..... basically, a road legal go-kart, that makes you smile everytime you go out in it. There's been a few niggly problems that have been annoying ie knocking rear suspension mounts (everyone complains of the same problem) there should have been a recall, also over-torqued brake caliper bolts, causing the bolt to thread inside the caliper (again, there's been numerous complaints) other than that i feel i've got alot of car for my money, and i would definetely consider owning another newer version of my car.

Best car i have owned. Bought new 10 years ago, there's nothing on the market suitable to replace it. Only failure has been a dashboard (time) clock. Only disappointment is the poor fuel consumption.
