    Just read through the article, I very nearly purchased a Scoody Doo before I got my hands on the S3, which I still own 10 years later!

    I guess it will make the older Impreza's go up in value in the long term.

    I thought I saw a new scooby which looked more like a saloon but still a hatch.

    Why good riddance? Just imagine, if there were no bad cars, there wouldn't be any good ones!

    Never owned one but drove a few , mates on his 3rd early ones where very agricultural ! But later models where top spec.
    150mph+ (Sti ) in a four door family car with a big boot, and performance to match some really sporty cars !
    Reliability and good after sales ,
    Altho NOTHING about them is cheap (mirror glass £90 and had to come from Japan!) drinks fuel at a Scarry rate (shell super plus recomended ) .
    I think Subaru just priced them selfs out the game and every one else caught up !

    The sterling has dropped in value so much in recent times, that exchange rates aren't favorable, they couldn't keep the cost of the car down anymore! Look where all the Jap imports have gone? No one's importing much these days, because it's not worth it!
