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


Review

I really like this car...though, i'm pretty biased. It's quick, fun to drive, handles great...super tight. The interior is sleek and the 6-Disk in dash is very nice. If the engine holds up for another 200,000 miles i'll have lived a happy life.


Best Features

Speed, handle, bug-eye headlights, momo stearing wheel (never thought i'd have one of those), 6-disk cd changer.


Worst Features

More storage compartments in the back to put tools, gear, etc.

2002 Subaru Impreza Wagon Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I'm at 20,000 miles, handling is more like hugging the turns and the car stops on a dime. I mostly enjoy driving this car on unpaved roads, snow and during ice storms. Only problem I have is the manual transmition reverse gear is a bit clunky. I also had to take in to reset the computer because I had an issue starting the car in the morning.


Best Features

Cargo room, AWD, looks good in and out. I'm a pretty tall dude but still have plenty of room.


Worst Features

I want Leather Heated seats, Submarine option so I can go Subin underwater, wings to fly and inflated cusion beds for comfortable sleeping in the back.

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


Review

This car is great fun and the best sport sedan value on the market. It's AWD makes it rock in the snow and rain and it's turbo-boosted engine make it one of the quickest cars on the market. It surpasses my BMW 530i for accelleration (the Bimmer has a higher and smoother top end) and beats my 4WD SUV for traction. It has a back seat for friends and family and is much more practical then Subaru lets on.


Best Features

Accelleration, traction, cockpit layout. This car lacks some finer appointments but makes up for it in design. It is designed for the driver and is pure driving pleasure.


Worst Features

Options. More plush. Sound system is weak - even premium.

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


Review

My previous car was a Honda that went for 400K miles. A hard act to follow. The WRX is a hoot to drive and in wagon form is very practical as a daily driver. The WRX's handling is amazing, especially with 17" rims and high performance tires. Driving this car in the winter gives you a sense of security and safety. To gripe about something, the WRX is very addictive. You get accustomed to what it does. The WRX is so smooth and competent, that it starts to feel slow. Thankfully there is an abundance of aftermarket performance options. I can't recommend the WRX highly enough, unless you are into spending 10K to 15K more for "prestige".


Best Features

Handling. AWD. 5 speed Shifter (very positive and smooth). Ergonomics -- simple and well designed. Seats. Reliability. Bat out Hell speed. Excellent highway manners. Stealthy.


Worst Features

Heated seats as an option. OEM gauge package that includes a factory turbo gauge. HID lights. SUBARU -- make a STI WAGON!! I'd buy one in a second.
