Very sharp, attractive car draws attention from everyone. A blast to drive. Very easy to control, with a little bit of understear. Great low end torque allows it to hang with cars such as the Eclipse GST and GSX from a stand still. Holds its value very well. People that own it don't want to sell it. If you are looking for more horsepower, there are many easy bolt on upgrades available, or you can always do a motor swap. Auto transmission is good, but not recommended if you are thinking about adding a lot of power to it. I purchased my Impreza RS brand new, and now Subaru's are just about all I will drive. Oh, and the AWD is great on a track, street, or in the dirt.

i got this car before i even got a
liscence. i love it so much, the only
compliant is the cup holders, mine
broke off with a full cup of soda from
taco bell.i love the seats in this
car. i love the fact that it has more
torque than horse power, it runs like
a scalded beast.stock, its faster than
any other stock 4 cyl car, well with a
few exceptions. i wouldnt trade iot
for anything but maybe another.

AWD is no excuse to drive with abandon,
but it instills more confidence in
inclement weather. Despite small
engine, lacking turbo of new Subarus,
acceleration is adequate. Braking is
never a problem. Uncommon exterior
appearance turns heads (but I'm tiring
of others trying to race me.) Front
seats are comfortable over long
distances; offer good support when
cornering. Climate system works well;
use of A/C hardly affects power.
Components (brakes, exhaust) have
lasted longer than expected.

I bought my RS Coupe used with 75,000
miles on it and it runs like it's brand
new. It handles as good as my friend's
Porsche 911. It's fast off the line and
has torque through all the gears. A joy
to drive on the highways and around
town. I get compliments left and right.
My friends all have to have one now.
One ride and they're hooked.

The car itself is great but after
owning it for two years, with
everything coming out now, it is
sometimes stagnent. Around windy
roads it is a dream but for highway
use lacks a punch. Also a major
factor in the score not being higher
than it would of been is the crumby
service of the Subaru dealerships.
For 2000, Subaru introduces the new Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan, a cross between an aggressive driver's car and a sedan. More standard equipment comes on the 2.5 Coupe and Sedan while the L model remains unchanged. The Outback Sport receives some exterior design changes. All Impreza models now come with 24-hour roadside assistance.
