by Soleil on May 23, 2004 Vehicle: 1997 Subaru Impreza L 2dr Coupe AWD
Althought my 97'impreza is my first
car and I don't have much to compare
to, this is truly a great car. I
bought it used in the fall of 2003 and
the only problem I had was that I had
to replace the steering fluid
container. The previous owner had no
known major problems with it. This
car is fun to drive and I know I'll
have it for many more years to come.
Imprezas receive a facelifted front end that includes a Hemi-size hood scoop. A new Outback Sport Wagon debuts, with over six inches of ground clearance, foglights and a slightly raised roof. LX model disappears, which means only the Outback is equipped with ABS. Power and torque for both Impreza engines are up for 1997, and some new colors are available. HVAC controls are revised.
