In a crash that deploys the passenger front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.
Subaru Impreza Reviews
Car is fun to drive, carries a lot of stuff, and is quicker than most other cars out there...Need I say more?
No major or minor problems / issues. A little noisy at higher speeds. Surprising low-end torque... takes hills with ease.
Over all good car. But the manual transmission doesnt go into reverse sometimes the first time I try putting it in first. Besides that awesome car.
