15 Things You Forgot About The Subaru Impreza

15 Things You Forgot About The Subaru Impreza

The Impreza is, in large part, responsible for the boom in younger people in the early 2000s getting into JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars. It was the first highly desired JDM car to be sold here and it caused other manufacturers like Mitsubishi to follow suit and start offering similarly equipped vehicles. Since those early days, the Impreza has spawned almost nothing but excellent editions that allow you to enjoy… Read More →
