This car is such a fun car to zip
around in. The performance and style is
incredible for only being a four
cylander. The car can rip around
corners and the seats won't let you
move an inch. I will never think about
another car as long as the wrx is
Comfort of the bucket seats. The awd
turbo can compete with anyone. Its got
its own little subaru community. Lots
of possibilities for more hp.
Fuel mileage is a little low,
especially when you have to put premium
in it. Transmission could be a little
better. 6 disc cd changer is great but
not good enouph sound quality from
This is my first new car and I love
it! I have had three cars before this
one and none comes close to this.
Every where I go I get comments on how
nice my car is. Not to mention it is
quick off the line and really fun to
drive. I love the look on peoples
faces when they see me fly past! My
only complaint is that the back seet is
front seat is verry comfortable, sporty
looks, fun to drive, fast, and great on
turns really hugs the road
This car is fun to drive. I find
myself making excuses to drive it. I
have done extensive modifications to
it to improve horsepower and
performance and i still get 25 mpg on
the highway. I have never had to have
The engine and handling!!!
The 5 spd transmision is a little
vague when u shift from 2nd to 3rd or
4th to 5th if u r daydreaming when u
upshift. The premium stereo is not up
to par when u crank it!
I planned on keeping my '00 Protege
until it died but for a WRX I traded my
reliable economy car for more power.
Generally not rash to buy a vehicle,
when I found a WRX wagon on sale for a
great price I bought it the day I test
drove it. For anyone into spirited
driving on gravel roads, a WRX has no
rivals for the cost. Compared to the
sedan version, the wagon is sluggish but
the utility of extra interior space has
been worth it. Everyone I know who has
considered a wagon and bought a sedan
has since regretted the lack of room.
Fuel economy: 22 mpg day-to-day, 29
highway, 9 when running wide open.
Rough road speed combined with
poor-weather handling to provide
performance unlike any other vehicle in
its price range. Sleeper appearance --
unless someone knows what the WRX
badging means they generally mistake it
for just another Subaru wagon.
Everyone dislikes the dash cupholder,
fog light & cruise engage button would
be better off on stalks instead of the
dash, stereo tuner "dial" should either
be a normal dial or just two buttons.
