Review of the 2001 Subaru Impreza

  • Variety of body styles and AWD make the Impreza a nice alternative to other mainstream economy cars.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    All-wheel drive, scrappy personality, bulletproof reliability record, fun to drive.

  • Cons

    Tight rear seat, limited cargo space in wagon with backseat raised, could use more power, no ABS option for L models, a bit pricey.

  • What's New for 2001

    RS models get carbon-fiber patterned interior trim, a CD player and embroidered floor mats.

Vehicle: 2001 Subaru Impreza L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

I wish I could write a great review of the Three Subi’s I’ve owned however, per my experience I’m not able to. Subaru has major major major design, engineering, assembly, and supplier parts quality issues. Here is my experience. 1999 Outback about 40,000 miles head gaskets blow. Several thousand for a new engine (yea sometimes the heads and block will warp when the head gaskets blow) car totaled. 2001 about 500 miles head gaskets blow. Another engine about 40,000 miles spun bearing. Run only Mobil 1 every 3-5,000 miles oil change. Car totaled. 1997 outback 20 miles yep 20 miles head gaskets blow. All Three were the EJ25 4 cyl engine.
