Value for money ride `
Has owned this 2.0 liter RS version since 2015 as a 2nd hand owner. Renewed COE in 2018 for about $17k and forfeit PARF value of about $7.7K. About $5k depreciation per yr for this one. There are still a couple left in car mart as 2nd hand/coe renewed vehicle. The handling around bends with AWD is good and stable. It is also pretty reliable so long you know the common issues associated with this ride. Aesthetically, I find the hatchback to look quite sexy and it is not too difficult to park as it is not a very long vehicle. Ride comfort is not exactly very comfy as over the uneven roads and humps makes the ride bumpy. (Perhaps mine is a stock set up) Pick up is not exactly fast in 2019 standards but when pushed, it can be quite niffy. Cabin is not exactly filled with plush leather/lining and your arms will be in contact with a lot of hard plastic. Cabin insulation is not exactly very ideal as it can be quite noisy with the road and engine noise. However it is decently reliable though i have suffered 2 breakdowns from 2015 to 2019 1) Using metal air intake. When chocked, the car just refused to start 2) Leakage of radiator pipes For the price point, there is value in getting one as it offers AWD and fairly decent horsepower and torque.

It's a mediocre car `
Alright so this is the car for all those YPs and all those max tune N*ggas. Seriously this car. The 1.5L model's acceleration is mediocre at best, you gotta rev the living crap out of this little 1.5L motor to even get any usable power. The only one you should be looking at is the 2.0L version. The interior, I don't even wanna start on that, it feels like a perodua or something like that, hard plastics everywhere. The dashboard have a monochrome odometer/gear selector display in the same ring of display as the speedo meter. This screams "I am cheap" It feels like looking at a calculator. The display on the top, the one the Mazda 3 also has have the sole purpose of being a clock. Other than that it's useless. The wind and road noise is also high. Idk may be I'm too sensitive, but it sounds like a jet engine roaring in the cabin with a symphony of chipmunks singing A cappella in the engine bay . The fuel consumption is also bad, it's gets no where near the advertised figures. The 1.5L can get about 9~11km/L depends on your driving style. The 2.0L version can get you 7~9km/L. The maintenance cost. If you're gonna buy this car, prepare $3000 put aside first for repairing. You can't even replace the spark plugs on this car without performing some hand aerobatics and dismantling half of the car. Due to it's inherent design of the boxer engine. Also if your Impreza burns oil, hoseh liao. Just top up another $1000 the the $3000. And on top of all it's damn expensive, which is the 2.0L version, the only usable one. Which also suffers from high insurance costs. You can get the 1.5L version, but if you wanna get the 1.5L, I'd rather you get a Honda fit or Mazda 3 or smth like that, unless you insists on AWD.

Still loving it .... Impreza 1.5 Sedan `
In the last 3 years, I have moved from a Mazda 3, Grand Vitara and now the Scooby. Among the 3, I love the feel of the Impreza best. The handling is super. I was just back from the North and the car easily hit 150km/h without you feeling it. I had to verify with my wife if she felt I was driving so fast. She hardly noticed due to the stability. The last 2 cars, she would ask me to slow down at 120km/h. Yes ... pickup is a bitch but the drive is extremely good. FC is not fantastic but coming down from a Full 4X4 2.0L, I think I save a little.

GH7 4AT `
Driving a 5 dr 2L 4AT for 2 years FC 9.8L/100km, 17" 215 45 tyre profile, stock air intake n filter, muffler, stock shock n brake. Mod: Throttle controller, front strut bar and rear sway bar, lower spring, rear fog light change to white colour. Oil use: Amsoil 0W30,10W30 Handling n high speed cornering is stable, only slight bumpy with stock shock. Brake can be too weak at times, there is a need to upgrade SSBH n high performance pad. Pickup only on 1st 2nd gear for AT, 3rd gear is too weak for 1.3 ton load. Stock stereo is not very clear, replaced with a DVD player which need to change the panel Thottle controller is very useful for AT car 2 yr only replace batt, tyres. Not water temp gauge, need to install a scangauge to monitor No ECU reflush available, only Unichip allow (did not install) Current power is enuff for my driving style Parts is ex. a headlight only cos $600 n a pair cost $1200 Servicing n oil change can be cheap
