Would you recommend a 2009 Impreza hatchback with 85 k miles

Customer Question

Would you recommend a 2009 Impreza hatchback with 85 k miles vs a 2012 Impreza hatchback with 41 k miles or a 2013 crosstrek with 27 k miles? I am concerned about complaints on the 2012 for sudden unintended acceleration and complaints on poor slush/ice performance and fishtailing on the Crosstrek as I live in the high snow and slush area of Wisconsin

id go with the 09 The newer ones tend to have oil consumption issues, cvt concerns and some performance concerns, The 09 is a great performing subie and was the same basic design they used for years.. I think the 09 will give you great performance and handeling and the best for reliability.
