Bring on the curves and hills.

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

Review

The "Rex" really begins to live above 3,000 rpm on the curvy, hilly Pennsylvania roads! The engine response is lively and it has plenty of torque for accelerating on those terribly short, up-hill highway on-ramps. It does have a turbo and 270 HP, so 24 mpg combined hwy and winding through the woods aint bad. The 2002 model is a super car! The “head-scratchers” are: 1) warm air from the foot duct with the A/C on bilevel setting? 2) owners get a clutch vibration starting out in first gear (note: dealer shops have a fix-up kit comprising new housing bolts and clutch for this vibration issue) 3) Ony the armrest does fold down for minimal access from the trunk.

2002 WRX with 18000 miles review

Review

My wrx has been a blast. I love the acceleration an performance for a very affordable price. However it is a hybid of a economy car and a performance car. The only major item that I do not like about the car is the transmission. It is stubborn to get into 1st when drifting (a lot of double clutching) and is also notchy. But heck it is $18 k less than an AWD BMW 330.

This car is fun to drive! I am a vertically challenged person (i.e,. short), and the seating is very comfortable for me. I get a kick out of seeing other WRX drivers and getting the "thumbs up" of recognition.

Review

I've owned a WRX for one year now and I've put 30,000 trouble free miles on this machine. This car is a blast to drive and handles like a dream. Only negative is the seat comfort - little skimpy on the padding, I see Subaru changed that for the 2004 models. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a sporty sedan! With 4- doors even - easy to sell this car as a family car and give dad a good time when by himself :)

This car is an absolute blast to drive, without compromising utility or day to day usefulness. My WRX has been completely reliable and never had a hint of a problem. Interior is good but not weighed down with silly luxury stuff. Exterior styling is quirky at first but you will appreciate the uniqueness of it. This is a truly amazing car for the money

Too much buck, not enough bang

Review

Owned mine for a year and it was a piece of crap. It had problems with everything from the suspension (5 times), ECU, exhaust, windows, interior falling apart, fan rattling. Got to a point where I was dealing with the regional representative on every visit. No mods, just a junk build. Major turbo lag and significant lack of low end power. Terrible experience. Some owners get mad when reading this, but I too drooled over the release of the WRX. If the quality isn't there, it just doesn't cut it. Run away from this purchase and shop for something else. Lost tremendous amount on it after only a year.

Review

Bottom of driver's seat 2 narrow. Lost "9K" in value in 14 months. Worse than a large american SUV. 2 much buffeting with front windows down. Flimsy/poorly sized cupholders. Cheap paint. Svc dept placed me in "LEGACY STATION WAGON" for a week and a half while they kept vehicle over multiple nights for 4th time. Fun 2 drive at moderate speeds. No fun at low speed. Too sketchy at high speeds.

Review

multi-purpose and split personality are the two best words that describe this long awaited car from subaru! a low 14 second car at stock trim, and still able to go through 12 inches of snow! this car is compact which makes it very nimble to drive. once you go awd, you wont be going back! this car packs a powerful punch in a stealthy perspective. cops wont be looking out for a wrx. this is a tight car, and very responsive. no clunks or squeaks like the domestics. gas mileage will vary greatly depending on your driving style. i can get 23+ mpg on my weekly commute if i stay off WOT.
