2000 Subaru Impreza L 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

This car is very reliable. That was part of the reason I bought it in the first place. It will hug any surface and get you out of a tight spot if caught on any loose surface.


Best Features

Handling is hard to beat. Visibility all round is good although front pillars are a bit too far forward blocking signals from other cars changing lanes. Cruise control works very well.


Worst Features

The design of the rear doors needed improving as they often had a pointy bit that jutted into the tummy when opening. Headrests were lousy. Automatic transmission works well but makes for a badly underpowered unit. Don't expect to overtake in a hurry. Remote control only works when next to car.

2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

I bought my Subaru after test driving it in the snow and loving the way it handled. I currently have 150k on the car and it runs perfect. I will buy another Subaru again based on this experience.


Best Features

I enjoy the handling and the way the car gets good power from such a small engine (fuel efficient). I average 26mpg on mixed driving and as high as 31mpg on the interstate


Worst Features

There is a lot of ambient noise in the car, it can get a little annoying when my three young kids are in the car with the radio on.

2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

I love my Subaru Impreza Outback Wagon. It's such a reliable little car and is always ready to haul gear for my band, carry mulch for the garden, or go on vacation. My costs for repair in the last five years have been minimal, with the exception of replacing one oxygen sensor (to meet NY state inspection) and replacing the timing belt (standard after 60,000 miles).


Best Features

My favorite feature is the hatch back which makes it easy to haul anything.


Worst Features

I wish the car had wheels instead of wheel covers, which always break and get lost. Also wish loading deck to trunk was lower. Seats should be a little bit higher and more padded/comfy.

2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

The car has really kept us moving. It it good on gas (about 25 hwy) and rides smoothly. The turn radius is good for parking. The hatch back is ideal for around town for a trip to the grocery or even hardware store, as the back seats easily fold down (2/3 split) to allow one person in back while extra room is created for long items such as garden tools or lumber. The ride could be a little quieter but then that would mean more weight thus increasing mileage. So can't have everything. The AWD is great in heavy downpours or when snow begins to fall. I really feel secure to the road, even during these conditions.


Best Features

Hatchback and fold downs seats let me fit anything. The AWD really help as Michigan's snow begins to fall. The gas mileage is great to get the kids to and fro and get us to work.


Worst Features

It should be less noisy. Cruising on the highway tends to be a bit windy sounding. The room in back seat is not ideal for tall persons.

2000 Subaru Impreza 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.
