2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
This is a fun car...but it's hard to call it a real performance car. The suspension is too soft, the tires are too skimpy, and the shifter is too balky. For performance driving, the engine's great, but around town it's a bugaboo...with only 2.0 liters of displacement and a low 8:1 compression ratio, this engine is gutless until the turbo kicks in around 3k RPM. The interior is pretty mediocre, with lots of hard plastic, but build quality's good and there are no major ergonomic flaws. Stereo's bad, though...too heavy on bass and all the sound gets squished together. Hard to tell instruments apart! Still a good performance value for the money, though.
Favorite Features
Smooth, rev-happy engine, AWD grip
Suggested Improvements
Better (aka smoother) shifter, standard 17-inch wheels, low-end torque, better stereo, bigger back seat, stiffer suspension
