Vehicle2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewThis is not the fastest car I've owned, but it certainly does most things well. Build quality is excellent, my only problem in 10,000 miles was a cracked windshield. Gas mileage is ok at an average of 24mpg mixed city/highway. The ride is firm but supple and this car swallows up potholes and ridges with aplomb, unlike most sports cars I've owned. Grip is limited with stock tires but still outcorners most other cars, in the wet, it's superb!
Best FeaturesSteering wheel. Versatility of wagon. Boxer sound of engine. Supple suspension. Short throw shifter. Acceleration.
Worst FeaturesDeceleration noise from trans. 16" wheels look too small in the large fenderwells. Turbo lag is prominent at below 2500 rpm.
