2003 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
It is absolutely fantastic car. The infamous turbo lag can be sometimes annoying, but after 6 months I almost mastered beating it, when need power. Florida is flat, but those wet ramps are great! I took a wagon for utility (also looks are in my opinion better then sedan) and can recommend all cargo accessories from Subaru (bin, net, tray, etc.). Also get the armrest extension if you are tall. An of course, get short-throw shifter! Fuel economy is an oximoron for this car: 20/25 premium (at best) is pathetic for a 2.0 l engine. Highway can be even worse if keep the speed above 80 mph. But boy, is it worth it.
Favorite Features
Good ergonomics, fantastic seats, nice accessories, short-throw shifter. An of course: power and handing (control).
Suggested Improvements
1. Closing door sound! Instead of a click, I hear all empty molding shaking inside. 2. Give me sunroof! 3. Do something with fuel consumption. Even 10 percent would be great. 4. Reduce the turbo lag. Do all that, but don't charge $5k more!
