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


The WRX is the best all-around performance bargain America. In the right hands, it will outperform a new Mustang GT in a 0-60 or 1/4-mile yet it has the utility to haul a family of 4 and 2 weeks worth of groceries. Those used to Taurus- or Camry-like handling will find the suspension tuning of this car somewhat rough. Yet compared to other cars in its price and performance class, the WRX has a positively smooth ride. Overall, an exceptional convergence of spirited performance, daily/family adaptability, reliability and affordability.

Best Features

Best things about this car are the acceleration, handling, and price-to- performance ratio that is excellent in its own right, but downright superb when everyday utility is thrown into the mix. Make it a wagon and the utility formula is exponetial.

Worst Features

Throttle response below 3K RPM is nonexistent; after that, hang on to something cuz it will surge forward with authority. Voltmeter, oil pressure gauge and turbo gauge should come standard rather than be a ridiculously overpriced dealer-installed option.
