Subaru Impreza hatchback

It took 6 months to get the car but it’s a great little zippy car . The salesman I dealt with was average. And in general my overall experience with Berwick Subaru was a bit crap - lucky I like the car ! Hasn’t got all the mod cons like other cars but overall a good ride. Show details

Warranty denied, warranty rejected some fake parts of the brand new car

I bought subaru impreza hatchback 2018 for my personal use. Not driving much. Service always on time. Turn up last year I had a cracked on GPS SCREEN no reason. I bought 3 years extended warranty. This car not even finished Subaru warranty yet. They not take any responsibility to most warranty that they have. Watch out anyone too expensive services. Now my brand new car turn to nightmare intertenmen unit it shut it down not working caused by cracked screen it happened on last year. My car not even use much because of covid 19 last year.  Show details

Fantastic Intelligent Car

After doing a lot of research and test driving I decided on the Subaru Impreza Premium 2019. The car is brilliant with all the safety features, great fuel economy, all the technology & gadgets, pools sporty and a very smooth drive. I would happily recommend Subaru, especially the impreza. Show details ·  1

Safety features are a life saver

The collision avoidance system is a life saver. This car is so intelligent it is amazing. Smooth and effortless to drive. Superb build quality. Yes servicing is a little on the expense side but not a deal breaker. Packed with too many features to list. At the very least it is worth a test drive if you are in the market for a new car. The only annoying thing is the auto engine stop, yes it can be turned off with a push of a button but every time the car is re started you have to de activate it again. Again not a deal breaker. Show details

My first & last Subaru. Disappointed

Has taken 2 weeks to trace error. $5000 bill to fix. Never buying another Subaru. Trans specialist says this is a common problem.
How about a recall?
All repairs are very expensive as are services charges. Back to a Toyota. Show details

Did some one say POOBARU??

3 recalls and an issue that sits there like an elephant in the room. No one wishes to address it, or rectify it. Their main goal is to find excuses and reasons for why you are not doing things properly, because this then deflects the issues off their nasty cars.

I have tried having these issues fixed for over 12 months and I have given up! they will not replace my lemon. They will not even replace for another second hand in another brand from their car yards. Auto nexus are absolutely useless at their online customer support and this is then fed through to the car yards.

Cant wait to be rid of this crap box they call safe!! Show details

8/10 car

I drive the 2012 sedan and its great. Fuel consumption averages 8L/100. What bugs me is that it can be really noisy accellerating in a tinny way, not a low grunt. Show details ·  2
