1999 Subaru Impreza RS RS 2dr Coupe AWD

Review

I've owned my Subie for the past 4 years. I bought it knowing it had a rebuilt title and had the passenger front redone, to include rewelding some of the fenderwell. I bought it w/ 92k mi and now have 133k mi on it. Its never let me down. The factory clutch had some minor defects and doesn't have a good clamping force, but I replaced that for a performance one. Its a fun ride and I love taking the long way home from work. I baby it about 80% of the time and drive it hard the rest and not once had an issue w/ the car. It has developed a small oil leak (1/2 qt between oil changes) but its not enough to matter. The only real downside is the decent MPG's and cheap looking interior.

Review

This is my first car. I love it so much. Super reliable, never hesitates to start, even with 170K on the odometer. Turns heads, and I get complimented on it almost daily. AWD is fantastic, the RS is constantly sure-footed; it drives like it's on rails, and, being naturally aspirated and with airbags, it's parent friendly too. But rest assured kids, it's a blast to drive. More low-end torque than you'd expect. Inside it has buckets of room, I'm 6'5" and I fit without a problem. The rear seats can be inhabited by normal people, too! Classic styling in and out, my only woe is the weaksauce cupholder.

110,000 Miles and no problems

Review

I bought this car new in 1999. I've had the car for 6 years now and have put 110,000 miles on it with few problems. I've had to replace the battery and a few light bulbs - that's it outside of standard service. This was my first all AWD car and I'll probably never go back to either a FWD or RWD car. It's so much better in the weather. I'm planning on driving it for another 3-4 years and then maybe trading up to a new Legacy GT.

Best car I ever owned!!

Review

This was my first new car purchase and I wish I NEVER traded it in! It was so perfect. I live in the Pocono Mountains in Northeast PA and in our harsh winters and mountainous terrain I NEVER had any troubles and I was running V rated DIRECTIONAL PERFORMANCE TIRES! Unreal! I never had to shovel it out after the plows went by, oil changes were so easy (no jacking required) but the AWD did wear tires out faster than rear or front drive.

Best all-around performer in its class

Review

On dry roads, this car is fun, safe, and forgiving. On wet or snowy roads, it is stable, predictable and almost unstoppable. In the hands of a good driver, the Subaru all wheel drive system will out-perform an SUV for far less money than an Audi or the like.

Great handling with decent power. Not as reliable as honda, but never quitted on me so that's good. Only had to change clutch, ABS speed sensor, and leaky radiator none of these had me call the tow truck. Love the styling of the car and it's a blast to drive.

Review

I've had mine for 4 years now, has 57,400 miles on it, not a single mechanical problem with the vehicle. It is a hoot to drive, very zippy. I pull a snowmobile/trailer with it very easily. I think this design looks much better than the WRX.

The Beauty of AWD

Review

This package of performance, safety, reliability, and cost can not be topped. The car is extremely fun to drive with good torque and HP numbers as well as close ratio gearing. The AWD provides excellent grip for summer fun and winter safety. I have not had one single problem with the vehicle, and I am at 37,500 enthusiastic miles.
