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


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.

Best Features

The RS has a balance of handling, acceleration, sport car feel, and features that make it an easy pick! This car should be a hoot to drive 360 days a year, and thanks to Subaru's quality, reliability, and AWD it IS! Also, the 2001 RS features front and rear limited-slip differntials.

Worst Features

More power, which they brought with the WRX sedan. Better paint/build quality. Addition of a remote trunk release to the keyless alarm FOB.
