Subaru Impreza WRX 2008

Hi all, i'm considering buying a 2008 WRX, this being the new hatchback. Does anybody have one? Or any thoughts on what they are like?? Thanks. Jason.

Re: Subaru Impreza WRX 2008

I think you'll find people either love or hate the hatch. Theres a massive thread over on scoobynet for hatch owners of every model you might want to check out.

I just got a 58' plate STi 330S Hatch and absolutely love it.
I'm finding it's much more well put together, solid, and feels like subaru have made more of an effort on the car.
The power is definitely still there (previously had an 06 STi PPP) although maybe my only gripe would be slightly poorer handling, although that's dependent on use. I'm mostly commuting with this car.

I'm not sure if the WRX's were affected by the engine problems which required a re-map to fix - you may want to check that out also.
Some say he naturally faces magnetic north, and that all his legs are hydraulic...
