2000 Subaru Impreza RS RS 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

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.


Best Features

Body styling, low end torque, vehicles weight is 400-500 lbs less then a new Impreza STi.


Worst Features

More top end power, but now you can get a WRX or STi if that's all you are looking for. Car seems to dent easily. Stronger transmission would be nice, but not needed for 99% of owners.

Review

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.


Best Features

AWD, handling, the rims, that great boxer sound after i did my exhaust.


Worst Features

cup holders, stronger lift points.

2000 Subaru Impreza RS RS 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

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.


Best Features

AWD, exterior appearance


Worst Features

Modest gas milage; numerous fit/finish issues; absurd locations for cup holders; paint easily blemished; irksome lack of lighting in glove box/trunk irksome; transmission is weak link in otherwise fun-to-drive car; power window elevators scratch windows

2000 Subaru Impreza RS RS 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

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.


Best Features

The handling, torque and looks.


Worst Features

The cup holder above controls is rediculous. I would change door construction to prevent rattling. Premature cracking of exterior rubber.
