This car has been so reliable and hard working. The basic upkeep is all it has ever needed. When it snowed and the Mustang Cobra couldn't make it out of the driveway and the Mitsubishi Mirage slip, slided away.. the trusty Impreza just plowed on through! We purchased the basic, basic model... no frills and it just keeps on going. Always getting us where we need and want to go safely and with a minimum of fuss and bother. I am now looking to replace my 2001 Mitsubishi with a new Impreza... although I will go a little heavier on the "extras" this time.

This car is great. I have owned it
for 7 years and it has continued to be
a reliable, fun to drive car. It's no
RS or WRX, but the basic foundation is
there. This, combined with the AWD make
this car a blast to drive hard into
corners and accelerate out of curves
with grip that sticks like superglue.
This car absolutely loves bad weather.
Snow and rain are simply no match for
the incredible AWD. Bottom line: I
love knowing that this car will get me
where I need to go safely, and
comfortably. The AWD is confidence
inspiring. You really do feel safe in
this car, no matter what the weather.
How many cars in this price class can
you say that about?
The formerly optional 2.2-liter engine is standard across the board, except in the new budget-minded Brighton AWD Coupe. A new grille accompanies the bigger engine, and a five-speed is available as well.

I'm new to the forum. I have a 1996 Impreza that needs the parking lamp bulb changed. I picked up a chiltons manual (generic for 6 years of Impreza's) and tried to find out how to remove the enclosure...
