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


Review

This car is so fast and hadles just as
good as any supercar out there
especially in the rain. This car
deserves all the great remarks and hype
it gets. I have only had mine for two
months and I love it.


Best Features

The power is obviously the favorite about the WRX along with the rally type body style. Everything goes together with this car


Worst Features

I don't feel that this car needs any improvements. You definately get what you pay for.

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


Review

Excellent performance while going
through the bends on the mountain roads
near Yosemite. Can't really enjoy the
performance on regular roads - too much
slow moving traffic! Cool to turn 90
degree corners while driving at 45mph :)


Best Features

My favorite time is when the revs are between 3000 and 6500. Front seats hold you well. Handling on any/every bend.


Worst Features

Low rev torque (supermarket trolleys can outrun me from the lights if I don't keep the revs up). Need blister front guards on the wagon. Smoother suspension on freeways (but not at the cost of handling bends).

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


Review

I have just purchased my WRX, due to
moving to CA and having my '00 Civic Si
stolen. You barely hit the gas and
you're gone, I was so used to whining
up my civic to 7-8k rpm's to get good
power. I am super satisfied with the
car, I thought I would be a loyal Honda
owner forever, but subaru has taken its
place. Broke the car in for 1000 miles,
then took it out on the racetrack for
the weekend, love the way no power is
wasted with the AWD.


Best Features

Versatility of a 4-door, yet performance of a 2-door.


Worst Features

Car should include painted side-under spoiler, and better looking wheels standard. Would prefer to use less expensive regular unleaded instead of premium.

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


Review

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.

Review

you can have my wrx when you pry it
from my cold dead hands... That's how I
have felt since the day after the break
in period. Oh, yea and the clutch went
out at 8500 miles but the dealership
warranteed it.


Best Features

Fun to drive, AWD, short throw shifter from the dealership. 6 disc in dash cd changer.


Worst Features

the cupholder in the dash hangs directly in front of and over the stereo making it easy to spill things onto and into the radio as well as making the radio difficult to operate while a beverage is there.
