Passes everything except a gas station

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

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!
