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


Review

I bought this car after carefully research of cars under 30k, which included BMW 330ci and Lexus IS 300. By far, it is worth the bang for the bucks I paid. Excellent acceleration and handling but drifts while cornering. It is a joy to drive and have racked up 13k miles in under 8 months.Awesome handling in snow and rain... Planing a trip across America this summer hope to c'ya all... Ciao


Favorite Features

The engine. It never quit's in any gear...aLways gives me what I want....more power and speed....Very comfortable to drive...


Suggested Improvements

GAS MILEAGE!!!!! and PAINT JOB...

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


Review

Timing belt tensior went out at 10500 miles. Intermittent clutch shudder that has worsened with increasing milage. Difficulty with getting dealers to do warranty work. Or admitting the car has a problem


Favorite Features

Power AWD


Suggested Improvements

SOA needs to be more responsive to consumer complaints and concerns about their cars. This is the first Subaru I have own prior to this it has been Acura and Toyota. I feel the realiability and coustomer service that Acura and Toyota provide is a cut above Subaru.

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


Review

This car has great power, handling, and seats. It's great to drive, but 4th gear synchros went out at about 23,500 miles, were replaced under warranty, and now, 2000 miles later, the 1st and 4th gear synchros are both out and the car is in the shop right now under warranty. It makes no sense that the new ones wouldn't last as long as the original ones. They aren't replacing the tranny, just repairing.


Favorite Features

Seats, Handling, POWER, shift feel


Suggested Improvements

Grinding transmission, reliability, being told that they wouldn't fix the problem if it shows up again.
