Subaru Impreza 2008 Hatchback 2.0 R, 150 hp, 4x4, MT


Recommended Posts

Wotcha and welcome. Own and run an 08 auto version of this car. Had no issues, it has been a reliable motor.

+ its a solid reliable car with a great 4x4 drive train.


- it is under powered for the weight of the car

- it is very soft to drive, more for comfort than the harder set up wrx or sti


Check rear arches for rust as dirt will sit on top of the lip

It depends on how you like to drive. The Auto box makes it quite a relaxed drive, it has got a semi auto option where you can select gears manually. 0-60 is about teh same with both cars, manual slightly faster but that is all down to the gear ratios.

I still tend to favour a manual and even though you can get a semi auto 2.0sti from Japan that does not appeal but it comes down to personal preference. Auto is certainly easier in the city

City 45-49km/h - highway 110-140km/h with Reno Scenic 2000 minivan 😄, but with this subaru i want same km/h. i dont put tuning or something like that. only full service and make me happy in snow, rain- more of the time when have bad weather and deep snow. I calculated my km for a month 1000 - 1100, per a year 12,000- 13,200 km.
