2002 Subaru Impreza Sedan 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

For the first three years car was great. Then at 60,000 miles the head gasket went. For the next 9 months in and out the shop for over heating problems. Then Subaru gave me a new engine block. Now at 90,000 miles transmission problems; needs 1st 2nd third and reverse gears replaced. $2300. In a manual. I never driven it hard -- I wanted it to last, but as you can see it's a piece of junk. I bought the car brand for their reputation. Once I get the car back I am selling it and buying a Toyota, Nissan or Mazda.


Best Features

I really liked the AWD. It was a fun car to drive. Got good gas mileage except during winter.


Worst Features

Build a better car.

Review

I bought this car used, maybe that was
the first mistake. The second week I
had it, something was wrong with the
transimission. Two months later
something was wrong with the engine.
A month later, the same problem
came back because the dealership didn't
fix it the first time. Now, the
transmission needs to be fix, again. I
take very good care of this car, yet it
falls apart easily. I don't race it
(cause I'd lose) and I don't floor it
every time I drive. It should not be
falling apart so much. I would not
recommend this car considering you'll
be looking for alternative
transportation since it'll
be in the shop every other week.


Best Features

The exterior is awesome. People are always interested in it until they realize it isn't turbo.


Worst Features

Don't buy it.

I do a lot of travelling with this car
and currently have 90,000 miles on it.
The car is fun to drive and up till now
has been problem free. Also great in
the snow.

Review

I had a '96 Subaru. I had an accident
with a tree and the car was completely
totalled. All I got out of the accident
was a small mark on my neck from the
seatbelt. I hit the tree (2ft diameter
jackpine) going speeds exceding 65 mph.
The build of these cars are incredible.


Best Features

All of the safety features. As well as most of the performance enhancing features!
