I had my 2002 RS for a one and a half
month. Absolutely LOVE this car. It's
not blistering WRX fast but it's plenty
fast enough. Highway ride is smooth,
very responsive and pretty quiet but
nothing extraordinary. Though I was
moving in and out of lanes at about
90mph in heavy rain and it didn't even
flinched. This baby really shines on
those back winding roads. The handling
is superb for a car in this class.
All in all the RS is an extremely
responsive vehical under all driving
conditions. Great acceleration,
awesome handlings, and it feels like a
race car when you're behind the
driver's seat. I'm very happy with it.
Looks and performance.
Needs truck lights, vanity mirrors (for
both sun visors), put a hoop scoop back
on the RS, even if it's a smaller non-
functional one (for looks). And offer
the WRX sway bars as an option.
