Your Love Stories
 
We recently caught up with the first 2017 Subaru Impreza owners to get their first impressions of their new vehicles.
 
Chris Townson
 Huntington, West Virginia
 
I have owned many vehicles of different makes, but this is my first Subaru. As soon as I saw the 2017 Impreza Sport 5-Door, I knew that it was the vehicle for me. The new body design, and styling, is the perfect mix of sport and functionality. I love the new 8" screen with Apple CarPlay. Also, the leather dash with red stitching adds an extra touch of sport to the vehicle. I can truthfully say I will never own a different brand after owning a Subaru.

 
Laura Noah
 Mobile, Alabama
 
I am thoroughly enjoying my new Subaru Impreza! Impressions: A smooth, quiet and very comfortable ride. Very sleek and stylish. Some of my favorite features are the automatic door/hatch unlock and the bright automatic headlights. Also, the adaptive cruise control, Apple CarPlay, and leather seats are wonderful. My husband, who is 6'1", is amazed at the roominess of the interior. The CVT creates a smooth drive and acceleration. The car is fun to drive!

Insider Tips
 
Road Surface Freeze Warning
 
Road Surface Freeze Warning When winter weather strikes in many parts of the country, drivers often face the added challenge of icy roads. Fortunately, Subaru vehicles equipped with a road surface freeze warning indicator7 can alert you to potentially slippery conditions based on outside temperatures.
 
Remember, the indicator is intended as a guide only. Drivers should check and monitor the actual condition of the road surfaces.
 
Be especially wary of black ice. According to AAA®, pavement with black ice will be slightly darker and duller than the rest of the road surface. It commonly forms on highly shaded areas, infrequently traveled roads, bridges and overpasses.
