Review of the 2003 Subaru Impreza

  • From the TS Sport Wagon to the WRX, the all-wheel-drive Impreza is an enjoyable alternative to more mainstream cars.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    A stout 227 horsepower in the WRX, all-wheel-drive grip, a variety of sedans and wagons to choose from.

  • Cons

    Often pricey when compared to its competition.

  • What's New for 2003

    As the Impreza was redesigned just last year, not much changes for 2003. Convenience has been improved; keyless entry is now standard equipment on the 2.5 RS, TS Sport Wagon and Outback Sport. For the WRX, Subaru will offer a standard rear spoiler on the sedan (though you can still get the car without, if you want) and Sonic Yellow is available as an exclusive WRX color.

I am a pastor and I believe this car to be Pure Fun! I still can't believe I own such a great, fast, fun, dependable car. You need to get it. It beats all other cars on the road. My congregation members can't believe their pastor drives this car. They love it.

I'm 28 and bought my WRX in Oct. 2003- been very pleased with my purchase. I would label this car a "driver's car." You get the feel and handleing of a sports car--the AWD of an SUV (but with a little better gas mileage)--and the convience of a four-door vehichle. It comes with alot of standards. Everyone has heard about the turbo lag--it is present. It is just a different driving expereince that takes a little to get use to. Overall, a FUN eye-catcher that looks mean sitting still.
