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


My previous car was a Honda that went for 400K miles. A hard act to follow. The WRX is a hoot to drive and in wagon form is very practical as a daily driver. The WRX's handling is amazing, especially with 17" rims and high performance tires. Driving this car in the winter gives you a sense of security and safety. To gripe about something, the WRX is very addictive. You get accustomed to what it does. The WRX is so smooth and competent, that it starts to feel slow. Thankfully there is an abundance of aftermarket performance options. I can't recommend the WRX highly enough, unless you are into spending 10K to 15K more for "prestige".

Best Features

Handling. AWD. 5 speed Shifter (very positive and smooth). Ergonomics -- simple and well designed. Seats. Reliability. Bat out Hell speed. Excellent highway manners. Stealthy.

Worst Features

Heated seats as an option. OEM gauge package that includes a factory turbo gauge. HID lights. SUBARU -- make a STI WAGON!! I'd buy one in a second.
