2003 Subaru Impreza Sedan 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We took delivery from the wonderful
Williams and it was snowing so we drove
for a half hour loving every minute.
The torque is great and the engine note
is pure music. The interior is just
right for two and stuff, which is how
we go, usually. We plan to have this
car a long time and care accordingly.
It seems to be decent quality materials
throughout.


Best Features

All wheel drive and the power to use it in a nimble capable economy car. The car has great front seats and driving position.


Worst Features

In our 2.5RS the steering wheel is too big. Steering is a little numb on center. The rear seat should lay flat. Some think bug eyes are too cute.

2003 Subaru Impreza Sedan WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The WRX’s build and design are a great
match for its price. The WRX steps up
a few generous notches in performance
and price from earlier models but is
money well spent. I felt it should have
had a shorter 1st gear with a
transmission spanning 6 gears but it’s
workable. Turbo lag is present but
after 3K RPM you feel a smooth but
quick rush of power. Compared to a V6
though, you’ll find the sub-3K RPM a
little sleepy. But the 2-liter engine
wakes up to very powerful acceleration.
The car grabs the road with a pointed
determination when the wheel is even
slightly turned. It’s an absolute blast
to feel the car respond instantaneously
to your every input.


Best Features

3rd gear at 4K RPM. Knock-out handling that begs to be pushed. Auto-tinting rearview mirror with cars from last greenlight in it. Super fun.


Worst Features

Shorter 1st gear with 6 gears total. More unique profile- less neon, shadow, lancer like and more 325, TT like.

Review

I live in New Jersey were the winters
are rough.Snow,Rain,and ice are no
match for this car.I love the roomey
interior also.my friend is 6'8" and he
has no problem getting into or out of
the car.The mostimpressive thing about
the car to me isthe performance!I love
to drive fast and i was a bit worried
at first if i would be able to keep up
with people at the race track unless i
modified the car.Let me tell you i have
had no problem keeping up.the only car
that i have racer and been beaten by
was a corvette Z06 and a Viper Gts.This
is the car to have if you want to shut
up all those Civic owners out there.


Best Features

TURBO! Comfy Seats. In dash cd changer. Extirior Design. Steering column mounted boost gauge. everythng in the car is simple but comfortable. you don't find many things that aren't functional. this keeps driving fun and the car light.


Worst Features

The back seats sould pass through to the trunk instead of just the center section passing through.Also the driver's side floor mat gets bunched up under the pedles. i think they should either come with rubber mats or have a second floor mat anchor at the top so it doesn't bunch up.

2003 Subaru Impreza Sedan WRX AWD 4dr Sedan w/Spoiler (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I traded in my beloved firebird for the
WRX after a scary snow incident. The
WRX has made the transition easy. The
turbo gets things going quickly, the
AWD handling is incredible. Its a
sporty, reliable car. One you can take
to the track for fun, or pack in some
friends for a long road trip and still
be comfortable. Very happy I purchased
the WRX


Best Features

AWD, Turbo, Reliable car.


Worst Features

Wider Rims, Better stock Tires, Rally Seats.
