1999 Subaru Impreza RS RS 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

As soon as I saw this car I knew I had to have it, it was a me car! Thought I bought it not knowing how to drive a standard I learned and now I zoom around town and it I still get rubberknecks.


Favorite Features

The Rally Blue and the way it looks like it smiles in the front


Suggested Improvements

If it came standard with 17" rims, moon roof and leather interior.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

It's super light and nimble. It does exactly what you tell it to do.


Suggested Improvements

stronger clutch, should have been built with the turbo

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.


Favorite Features

power, looks, AWD


Suggested Improvements

No light in the trunk, back seat does not fold down.

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.


Favorite Features

The Fun-to-drive factor, and excellent reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Still a little more HP (too much is never enough!), a better design for the funny seatbelt "extentions" on 2- dr model.
