Wow, my partner and I now have a MY18 Impreza! We absolutely love it, after trying the Corolla, i30 and focus we were blown away by the power, and handling of the Subaru.
I wanted to give a very special mention to Troy Dobinson and Llewellyn Subaru at Booval Ipswich. He was by far the best car salesman we have met to date. The experience was natural and the way he spoke of the car and let us interact with it filled us with confidence that this was the right vehicle for us. We ended up settling on the L model which was in our price range yet had the safety features we wanted.
Unfortunately we almost missed out on buying this car after a bad experience at a different Subaru dealer in the inner Brisbane suburbs, where it was a heavy push to buy now and the risk that stock is limited and if we didn't order now we may miss out. It practically put us off buying a Subaru. It was only because I had always wanted one that I convinced my partner to have just one more look at it as we were walking through a car yard that had multiple brands on the street which is where we met Troy and things fell in place from there.
We love our new Subaru and are already planning our next adventure. It was funny, we normally do about 250km a weekend, but in our first weekend did close to 700km pretty much doing as many trips as we could anywhere we could to spend time in our car.
