Pre-purchased WRX in April 01 site unseen, before they were first imported. Extremely happy with the car, fuel efficiency, power, and build quality. Over the last year, it has developed a couple of small rattles and the driver's window regulator needs replacing (has nearly 100k miles). Value is still over $10k 6 years later. Very satisfied with the car, the brand, and the type of vehicle.
Turbo. AWD. MOMO steering wheel. MPG
Cupholders, AC system a little weak, quite a bit of road noise in the interior. Sunroof (later models received this upgrade). Make boost gauge standard.
