2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I love this car based on performance and looks. Once you overcome the turbo lag, this thing stands up and darn-near lifts of the pavement as it flies away. Unlike Front-wheel drive pocket rockets, the power transfer to the ground is smooth and devoid of torque steer. With side and rear spoiler, plus the standard fender flares, it looks great...hunkered to the ground and read to roll.

Favorite Features

1) Performance, 2) Appearance, 3) Performance, 4) Price, 5) Performance.

Suggested Improvements

Subaru needs to fix the clutch chatter when its cold...it's impossible to drive it smoothly for the first few miles. Second, fix the rough idle, which actually shakes the entire car. Remarkably, my dealership says that both of these things are normal.
