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


Review

Plenty of pickup, amazing suspension, corners on rails, tons of room to put stuff in back, decent gas mileage. Handled incredibly well in over a foot of snow, in rain, in all weather conditions. AWD is amazing. Drawbacks: Suspension being so tight causes ride to be a little stiff for long distance (worth putting up with), interior design could be a little better engineered(no place to put cd's, only one useful cupholder. In short, totally worth the price paid for the fun on tight roads, handling in all weather, and zip. Eminently practical, too.


Best Features

suspension, handling, power.


Worst Features

better interior design, better base stereo system

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


Review

The most fun car I've ever had. This is the perfect blend of practicality and performance. It is as close to a full-on race car as most of us will ever need, while offering a good deal of safety and convenience in a very confidence-inspiring package. You can't help but love it after you drive it.


Best Features

Wonderful engine mated to excellent AWD system. Will go through the worst of conditions with ease, or through the best of conditions very quickly. Enough cargo space for two people to haul whatever they need for weeks. Excellent stock front seats.


Worst Features

Poorly designed cupholders. Gaping hole in the middle of the windshield not blocked by sun visors.

2003 Subaru Impreza Wagon 2.5 TS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I wanted a sporty, fun-to-drive car. My wife wanted a safe and reliable car. The Impreza fit the bill at a price we could afford. Unfortunately, I had to give in and get the automatic.


Best Features

AWD, 165hp, low centre of gravity, good tires.


Worst Features

Light in rear hatch area.

Review

Overall a a very nice car. Open road driving is great, but the turbo lag is annoying. The power is poor until you hit 3,000 RPM, then it takes off like a rocket. Also, the gas mileage is nowhere near the 20/27 listed on the sticker. More like 20/23. Also, the transmission is not that smooth at times. Overall, though I like the car a lot and often take the long way home as long as that way involves lots of hills and curves!


Best Features

Open road driving is excellent and makes up for the lack of excitement in- town. The in-dash 6 CD changer is also very nice to have. The standard radio needs a little more power, though.


Worst Features

Gas mileage stinks and the race- inspired seats are a little too narrow for my 200 pound butt. Do something about the turbo lag!
