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


Review

What I got: WRX Sedan - Sport Package - Sound Package The suboofer is plenty for myself, but for serious noise, look aftermarket. The spoier is beautiful, but the short throw shifter is of questionable value on this car. My first turbo car, the lag is definately noticeable, but doesn't get in the way if you keep the revs up. Its a hoot to blast through the turns, and has been a joy in rain, snow, and ice thanks to the AWD. Nothing better than dusting every other car off the line on wet pavement. Overall I really love this car. Its a blast and I'd reccomend a test drive to anyone.


Favorite Features

- 227 Horsepower - All-Wheel Drive - Great cornering - Pretty good upgraded stereo


Suggested Improvements

- Beefier exterior paneling - Could use a fold-down back seat for more cargo room in the sedan. - Debateable asthetics

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


Review

I'm in my 50s and wanted a fun car to drive in all kinds of traffic conditions. The WRX is a huge improvement in speed and handling from my departed Infiniti G20t and our existing Legacy GT. This car is the bargain of the century.... ...and a hoot to drive.


Favorite Features

Review

Gas mileage is excellent given that it's a turbocharged 4 - ride quality is first rate - handles well when you push it, but is comfortable as a daily driver. And you just can't beat AWD in the rain/mud/snow!


Favorite Features

AWD! Turbocharged engine!


Suggested Improvements

a little more legroom, maybe? Other than that, no complaints here!

Review

This car is an absolute blast to drive. I have owned mine for about seven months and I still have a smile everytime I step on the gas. I did a lot of research before I chose this car, and you can't beat the quality, features and performance of this car for the price. I was comparing this car to car's costing $5k - $10k more - still no contest. Drive one and see what I mean.


Favorite Features

All wheel drive and turbo charged flat four making 227 hp (factory!)


Suggested Improvements

lumbar support for those of us who drive long intervals.
