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


Review

I work with a ton of car buffs who
sport around in their 50k porsche's or
other sports cars. Not all of them
appreciate the car design but they all
have the same reaction when I drop the
clutch at about 3500 RPMs...Holy S!*#!!.

If you want a luxury "sports" car look
somewhere else. If you want a car that
drives like a gokart on steroids this
is your ride.

With the popularity of the car there
are a wide range of modifications
coming online for those who want to
take the next step in performance.


Best Features

Pure power, bucket front seats that hug you while you drive, the waves you get from other scooby owners.


Worst Features

Trunk latch is horrible, sun 'blocker' above mirror is useless, cheap plastic sun shades for driver and passenger. Need a power antenna or internal.

2003 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Subarus are tough, easy to work on,
and fun to drive. Not the biggest car
inside, but for a single commuter or a
small family it is fine. The AWD is
great when it is needed, but otherwise
sucks up a bit of power. The car is a
perfect blend of utility and
performance, and is a great value.


Best Features

AWD, flat four power, torque, and sound, ease of maintenance


Worst Features

Stereo, cupholders (you could count them on half a hand if you were a Muppet), and paint.

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


Review

The best performing car I've ever
driven. Great fun around town, or on
the expressway. It's a little cramped
inside (I'm 6'3"), and seriously needs
a 6 speed trans, but other than that, I
LOVE THIS CAR!


Best Features

Outstanding performance. Versitility. It's a sleeper.


Worst Features

Needs a six speed tranny. Needs a little more "me" space inside. The interior finish needs some upgrading.

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


Review

This car is an awsomely fun drive.
Very good pick-up, very quiet. Quite a
sleeper. Unexpected power from only a
4 cyl. Everyone I have let drive this
car loves it. (Even my Porsche friend)
Outstanding handling around turns.
Good everyday driver also.


Best Features

The acceleration is unparalleled in any car $25k. AWD is very handy. Brakes are good, but would be better stocked with Brembros. Handles outstandlingly around turns.


Worst Features

Cupholder above the cd player is odd. Hood dents easily. The little flap between the window visors is too small to actually block the sun.
