1999 Subaru Impreza L 4dr Wagon AWD


I have had the car since it was new and am still loving it since the day I got it. It is a fun little car to drive and it is true when they say that once your drive an AWD car, you'll never go back to 2WD. The engine is very torquey for a 4 cylinder and I love tossing it in a corner. I have driven it on the beaten path a few times and it has never let me down. Actually, the car looks better when it is dirty rather than clean! After 4 years of ownership, the only trouble areas have been the rear bearings (surprise,surprise!!) and my throw out bearing on my clutch giving out during a flood 2 years ago.

Best Features

The little torquey engine, overall reliability and the exclusivity of owning a Subaru. People still come up to me and ask what kind of car it is.

Worst Features

Just about every improvement that I wanted came with the new 2002 model (except for the bug-eyed headlights). I guess they listened to me with the 2004 models. :)
