We bought this thing to replace our GD Impreza wagon family hauler, and regretted it immediately. The car is not as big, as good at sipping fuel or as forgiving for my wife in the winter as the Impreza was… but six months later it may be our favourite car ever.
The car makes beautiful sounds, feels solid and comfortable, and is not a tremendous source of embarrassment in our up scale neighbourhood. On my end, it’s a fun tossable car that is plenty nice in traffic. The NA 2JZGE, though not fast, may be the best thing I’ve ever had under the hood of a car. The car is almost completely stock, but well loved. I hope we never find a reason to get rid of it.
