This is my 3rd Subaru and I must admit the best of the lot. The 2.5 is quick and economical. I have not had any problems with in the 130000 miles I have on it. I just had to replace the timing belt and water pump and one rear bearing in 10 years. I wish you could put on hydraulics to lift it off the ground more in the winter. Too much snow and I have problems. I trained two kids how to drive a manual in duluth, mn which is full of hills and the clutch held up till last spring. I still get looks from some people when I drive by.
The sound system in it and just the pick up when I need to have it to pass or just get out of the way of things.
The cup holder was not the best place and I see in later models it has been moved.
I have had 4 cars, and I'm only 20
years old. I love cars, my parents
started me out with a Subaru Impreza
L. I sold it and got a Mitsubishi
3000GT, because I wanted something
sportier and faster. Well that got old
quick when I noticed it was a gas hog,
and only took premium gas. I sold it,
and got a VW Jetta GLS, something that
was easier on gas, but I went right
back to the problem of having little
power, and once a huge winter hit. I
felt lost without my AWD. As soon as
summer hit, I started looking at the
Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS. They are good
looking, AWD, and faster than any
average car. It fit me perfect. Best
all-around car anyone could find.
The looks of the exterior is what
attracted me to the car.
Faster get-up-n-go. It isnt as fast as
it should be with the size engine that
This was my first car, and I absolutely
loved it. Never failed me in the snow
storms. Perfectly hugs the road and
turns like you're in a high speed car
chase! It was my baby, and now it's
going to my younger sister. If you love
to drive fast and look good doing it,
this is the car.
Gas mileage. Huge fog lights. Hood
scoop. Driving performance(in nice
weather and HEAVY snow, even foot deep
water during a flood). The whole front
Inside is kind of plain/basic looking.
This model didn't have fold down back seats.
The Subaru Impreza RS is one of the
most exciting vehicles on the road
today. It tears into corners with
dignity and grace. Then flys out of
them like a Banshee. It has ample
acceleration and destroys those kids
with tricked out Honda with ease off
the line. I give the Subaru Impreza RS
a perfect 10.
