Impreza for the last time as a gas powered vehicle, I take note of its
characteristics. The brakes are fine. The suspension a little soft. It
is a peppy vehicle at low speeds. It's weight is around 2500 lbs, and
if you shift at redline in first and second gear you move right off.
The car has
no problems getting up to highway speeds, but takes a while to reach 90
mph. In the upper speeds, you really need to carry your momentum. If you
misjudge traffic and have to come off the throttle, or worst yet, brake,
it is a while until you regain your speed.
the car is like taking apart a well constructed three dimensional puzzle.
Most parts are tightly fitted and stay in place even after the bolts and
screws are removed.
