2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Thought I'd throw in my 2cents after owning this car for a full year. Bought new in Feb 02 and is honestly some of the best money I've ever spent. Great acceleration, nice compromise of handling and comfort, and ohh, the Momo steering wheel. Seriously, this has to be one of the most meatiest factory steering wheels in any vehicle. I own a 5 speed and could live without the clutch shudder, which is my biggest gripe. But at the end of the day, if it were ever stolen or totalled, I would be rushing out to buy another.

Best Features

AWD, Turbo Motor, Momo wheel.

Worst Features

This car needs a clutch recall. If you follow any internet threads of owners that have had a 5speed for 10-20K, some even less, you will find that most have a cronic clutch shudder (skipping/slipping) when the car is cold/sitting for serveral hours.
