2013 Impreza: Louder than I expected?
I'm close to buying a 2013 Impreza hatch (my first Subie! I'm excited.), but I'm worried about two things:
1) The new sedan I test drove had surprisingly loud road noise, to the point that I really had to crank up talk radio to hear it clearly. Bad news given my 2.5 hours of commuting a day.
2) The car has surprisingly good pickup in the 0-40 and 60-70 mph range, but lags a bit in the middle.
Any thoughts on whether the road noise is due to the car being new, or weird tire choices, or xxx? Or will I just have to get used to it?
And if I wanted to look for another hatch with AWD that has beter pickup in that 40-60mph range, any suggestions on other options?
