2001 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5 RS AWD 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The RS provides an active driving experience for those who know how to use it. The combination of a balanced chassis and performance oriented suspension give the driver the ability to handle challenging roads and conditions with fun and excitement. The interior dimensions may not provide room for the larger driver, sorry you football lineman out there you will not fit. There is a need for more power, which was delivered in 2002 with the WRX. Unfortunately the WRX only comes in sedan and wagon. The WRX continues the Fun and excitement started with the 2.5RS, yet they too could use more power.

2001 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5 RS AWD 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Every drive has been enjoyable. I have roughed a blizzard in 2000 with this car and the AWD just amazes me. Gas mileage averages around 25 MPG including spirited driving. The standard feature list is incredible and should be for the base price. The seats are comfy and gripy, the interior room is spacious, and the rear seat is somewhat spacious. I haven't had any problems with the 2.5 RS, sans a passenger seat that did not kick up when the rear passengers wanted to exit, which Subaru fixed. Also, Subaru has been great to deal with during oil changes and their support of factory performance parts and accessories is on par with Toyota's TRD department.

2001 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5 RS AWD 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is the best car I have ever owned. It is safe in the rain and snow, fast, sexy and smooth. I live in LA where all the "NICE" cars are and I get looks (the car not me) every time I take her out and I have had the car for almost two years now. Sure the WRX is faster ... but it doesn't look half as nice.

My own review and opinion of the 2.5RS
By robertfusco on 03/13/02 10:23 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2001 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5 RS AWD 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Awesome and fun car to drive and handles curves and turns with ease thanks to the rs suspension and of course the AWD.Plenty of power and a monstourous amount of torque for the NA 2.5 liter Horizontally Opposed boxer 4. Drop the clutch in first and your off no skidding/sliding you just go 2nd and third and fourth gears have a good firm pull to 5800 with some power power drop off heading to 6000. Comfortable buckets seats hug you nice and tight but can get some aches on long road trips.
