Review

I still love driving this car, and I
can't wait to drive it to work. I did
install aftermarket speakers and
XM radio. The car still needs a nice
tint of the windows, and I bought some
nice Michelins to replace the stock
Potenzas. Reliability is fine. I
have only had to replace a set of
brake shoes. Car handles very well,
but does need a little tweaking in
extreme cornering. But what car that
costs under 25000 dollars corners like
a Subie WRX? Not many! All is well
with the sport wagon WRX I even like
the first design better than the new
design, seems to have more personality
than the refinesd version out now.


Best Features

AWD, turbo charged bliss, nice Momo steering wheel, nice sporty seats, scoop on top like a retro funny car, I know many people rather have the air forced in from the bottom like the EVO, but I like the functional scoop at the top, personality of the car shines through.


Worst Features

Low end acceleration before 3000 rpms Less understeer on hard corners, higher quality fog lights and headlamps.

Review

This car is a fun car to drive. It is
fast and has great handling. The gas
mileage is poor, but I can deal with
it. With the wagon, you not only get
speed, but you also get a ton of
storage space. I love this car so
much, but be warned. My husband
recently found out that there is a
glitch in the transmission in the 2002
models that makes it go bad around 50K
miles. I think the info is in Consumer
Reports. Sorry for the bad news, but
otherwise, for now my car is great.


Best Features

Lots of space and speed to boot. I do love my car.


Worst Features

Make the added options a little cheaper. Maybe make a lighter interior color. The best thing would be to give owners of the 2002 WRX models a discount when we need to get our transmissions replaced.

Review

Used'02 OBS.Car is solid.Hit a bump &
no rattles.Smooth ride, agile
steering.Gas milage low for car this
size, but has large engine for car this
size. Like that it takes regular
gas.Removed rarley used roofrack cross
bars & milage went from just under
26/gal to just over 27/gal.Had 5 weeks
( 2000 mi )and am very very happy with
this car.


Best Features

1st owner had upgraded speakers & subwoofer put in. Sound is excellent! I think better than my wife's Mazda Millenia. Also had armrest extender added. A must. Get it.


Worst Features

Nasty reflection on the windshield of the hump of the dash that surrounds the insterments. Fix that please.
