2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Goes like a champ in the snow.Handles like a dream.Keep the revs up and the turbo rocks.Yes the front seats are a bit uncomfortable on long drives, but you'll love the way they hug you as you throw the car into a tight turn at 60mph.Yes the cup holder sucks.Yes paint quality is average at best.Yes, the clutch does shutter when cold for a bit.And yes it would be nice to have split rear seats (but that makes the care less stiff).If you buy this car thinking it is a luxury automobile, it's not.If you want cushy seats, nice cup holders, and a smoother ride get a Caddy and enjoy your early bird special at Denny's with the rest of your demographic.

Favorite Features

AWD, turbo, handling, brakes are amazing, great stero (if you get the upgrade), looks are unique, highly upgradeable (be careful not to void warranty)

Suggested Improvements

Tranny makes me nervous based on "stories" I've heard, got a couple rattles in the dash (the 15k pot holes where I live have more to do with this than the car), paint does chip easy, skid plate for the engine (ice, snow, rocks could cause problems), upgrade stock intake
