This 2002 Subaru was a LEMON

Vehicle
2002 Subaru Impreza TS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Problems from the start. Poor paint quality (orange peel and easily scratches), inadequate electrical system which couldn't keep battery charged if a few electrical loads were on, consistently hesitated at 2,000 RPM. Dealership was fantastic but Subaru head office resisted doing anything. In the end, received a refund. Now driving a 2003 model which drives well but paint is still poor quality, Windshield wiper blades freeze, inadequate heating system, poor design of rear window washer spray head, steering wheel not aligned parallel when driving straight.
Favorite Features
The all wheel drive seems to enable the car to hold the road better than front wheel drive. I like the wagon aspect.
Suggested Improvements
Better: windshield wipers; heating system (especially for rear of sportwagon); tires; paint and painting. Every aspect of Subaru's customer service in Canada is very poor before and after purchase and needs serious improvement.
