Review

My Wife wanted the Outback and I wanted
the WRX lead us to compromise on the
RS. Other cars may generage more Gs on
the skid pad but thow the bumps in and
the supple suspension, stiff body and
4wd traction makes you faster around
corners in the real world.Engine is
tourqiest in class by far. The seats
are the best feature of the interior..
The stereo is horrible and there is no
excuse for it in a car at this price
level.Exterior styling is "different" I
like the WRX fender flares but the lack
of std. fog lights is once again kinda
cheap. Overall the car is great for
somone who needs to drive in snow and
on less than perfect roads.


Best Features

Rally bred suspension and 4wd make bumpy slippery backroads fun. Low end tourqe and people think it is a WRX


Worst Features

A decent stereo!Don't be so cheap on the little things: shifter knob, steering wheel, fog lights (corrected for 2003) trunk light and paint quality. We already pay a hefty premium in the Class and Subaru name. Don't nickle and dime buyers on little options

Review

My 2002 Impreza RS is a great car. I
spend at least five hours a day driving
it. The bug visor, fog lights, keyless
entry and the spoiler that I added was
money well spent. I traveled over 1,400
miles in three days behind the wheel.
Never once did I regret selling my
fullsize pick-up especially when I had
to fill the tank. Subaru built a great
little car. Thank you.


Best Features

Fog lights, cruise control, bucket seats, the trunk pass thru(for my ski's)


Worst Features

Trunk light, map lights, vanity mirors, all of the add ons:fog lights,keyless entry,spoiler,subwoofer,etc. should be standard on the RS

Review

I had my 2002 RS for a one and a half
month. Absolutely LOVE this car. It's
not blistering WRX fast but it's plenty
fast enough. Highway ride is smooth,
very responsive and pretty quiet but
nothing extraordinary. Though I was
moving in and out of lanes at about
90mph in heavy rain and it didn't even
flinched. This baby really shines on
those back winding roads. The handling
is superb for a car in this class.
All in all the RS is an extremely
responsive vehical under all driving
conditions. Great acceleration,
awesome handlings, and it feels like a
race car when you're behind the
driver's seat. I'm very happy with it.


Best Features

Looks and performance.


Worst Features

Needs truck lights, vanity mirrors (for both sun visors), put a hoop scoop back on the RS, even if it's a smaller non- functional one (for looks). And offer the WRX sway bars as an option.

Review

Subaru has done it again, but with a regular car? This 4WD sedan does very well by my standards. It corners great and looks cool. Also throw in the 237 HP and you've got the greatest value around. NOTE: I do not work for subaru.


Best Features

4WD, HP, Turbo


Worst Features

More streamlined, less of the original rally car.
