1999 Subaru Impreza Sedan L 4dr Sedan AWD


Review

Solid, comfortable car in town or on highway. After some tuneup I'm pleased to get 25-28 city and highway mpg. I can hardly believe it. Had some original trouble with acceleration issues but discovered that I had a faulty mass air volume control unit. After inexpensive replacement I love it. It's no hot rod but basically easy and fun to drive. Only disappointment is the location of the single cup holder as it right above the radio and located in such a way as it obscures the heating and air conditioning controls. The second holder is between the seats which is a little weird. Basically car is an "8" though.


Favorite Features

Great road car, comfortable seats and fun to drive. Good turning radius, great gas mileage and nice exterior and interior.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder location for two not one.

Review

This vehicle has been very reliable. There have been no major problems. It still has the original muffler and battery. It burns no oil and is great on gas. However, it is a bit under powered.


Favorite Features

The all wheel drive. It handles well in all conditions.


Suggested Improvements

More zip in the engine.

Review

I live in the province of Alberta in Canada and we get A LOT of snow. I purchased with 144,000 KM ( now has 151,000km.) From the months of dec to March the snow can get to as much as 1.5-2 feet in one fall. That being said the AWD is amazing. I have so much fun driving this in the winter. When winter falls here people hate driving cause a lot of our vehicles are FWD or RWD. I sometimes make and excuse to drive somewhere just so I can rip around and take corners with the amazing AWD. The only problem I have had is the bolt holding the alternator busted so i was running on battery for a while and no power steering. Easy enough I just purchased a stainless steel one and it was fixed


Favorite Features

Im not so picky about vehicles. This thing satisfies my needs for now. The AWD has got to be the best thing for me right now. The handling and the torque is pretty nice for this small car. All in all I like it. The reliability is awesome. nothing has majoy yet.


Suggested Improvements

More HP( everyone wants that tho) Cup holder is lame. If you have coffee and you wanna drift in the snow be prepared to have your dash and shift area spilled with coffee. because I did that and forgot about the cup of starbucks in the holder. - I wish the rear seats fold down. I am also a snowboard instructor so I can only fit 1 in the back.

Review

I drive a 99 Wrx Impreza, been a car enthusiast since the age of 14 and have owned many cars and this would be one of the best. Love it...Love it....Love it!! What more can I say, i'm now wanting an STI Coupe.


Favorite Features

Very versatile.


Suggested Improvements

They could have made the 99 cockpit a little more sportier looking. A stronger gearbox would've been better.
