2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


My Wife wanted the Outback and I wanted the WRX lead us to compromise on the RS. Other cars may generage more Gs on the skid pad but thow the bumps in and the supple suspension, stiff body and 4wd traction makes you faster around corners in the real world.Engine is tourqiest in class by far. The seats are the best feature of the interior.. The stereo is horrible and there is no excuse for it in a car at this price level.Exterior styling is "different" I like the WRX fender flares but the lack of std. fog lights is once again kinda cheap. Overall the car is great for somone who needs to drive in snow and on less than perfect roads.

Best Features

Rally bred suspension and 4wd make bumpy slippery backroads fun. Low end tourqe and people think it is a WRX

Worst Features

A decent stereo!Don't be so cheap on the little things: shifter knob, steering wheel, fog lights (corrected for 2003) trunk light and paint quality. We already pay a hefty premium in the Class and Subaru name. Don't nickle and dime buyers on little options
