Review

A fun and safe vehicle that has been for the most part very reliable. A blessing to drive one of these in IL winter. Problems that I've had: Tend to go through car battery every 2 years. Engine serpentine belt pulley/tensioner replaced at 80K Engine short block replaced at 115k ($elf induced) Paint is very thin and prone to chips. On average I get 22.4 mpg with includes a good mixture of highway and local driving.

My Spaceship

Review

135000 miles in 5 yr, ave 27 mpg for mostly freeway driving with utmost reliability, my spaceship still flies the same like the very first day. Problem so far are replacement of the small rubber hose/ one axle supporting the transmission/ 2 O2 sensors...Oh! Forgot to mention the performance is devastating. Could have bought a maserati or p911 or m3, but unable to find a good reason to.

Great Performance Sedan

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

The Impreza WRX with the automatic transmission is a total joy to drive. Confidence inspiring with the all wheel drive. There is turbo lag below 3000 rpm. However, the engine has more than enough power to move along smoothly in rush hour type traffic. When the turbo kicks in, the car really gets up and goes. Great handling. Car design is practical, what with four doors and a reasonable sized trunk.

Review

I've had the '04 WRX for almost 2 and a half months and one thing is clear...this car MOVES. The car's low center of gravity and excellent handling makes you feel like you no longer obey the rules of physics. My last car was a BMW 525i, and the subie puts that car to shame, especially considering it cost tens of thousands of dollars less. The only other car i could imagine myself buying in the future is the STI.

Review

I bought an 04 WRX soon after they came onto the market. I must say it is an excellent car. And if you know how to drive, the auto version is just as fast as the manual version.

Sporty family hauler

Vehicle

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

I've only had the WRX a week but, I am constantly impressed with the level of performance built into the vehicle. The vewhicle was actually purchased for my wife, but I seem to be the one using more. The interior is small, so if you have kids or are hauling people, make sure everyon will fit. We have a 1yr and 3yr old, and their seats fit with just enough room to lower the center armrests. The cockpit is nicely DESIGNED, but sparcely appointed. If you want luxury, you can pay more but you will lose the smile factor when driving. I've been researching this for months and can't find a better blend of utility, performance, safety, and liveability.

FUN FUN FUN

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

Purchased vehicle with automatic transmission for wife to use daily. The Turbo makes this a very fun car to drive, and merging into traffic is no longer a problem with this power. This is a performance sedan, so the ride is a little harsh but not severe. The handling more than makes up for the stiffer ride. Wife is averaging 23 mpg with mostly city driving. Manners on longer trips if very acceptable. Front seats are excellent and are fitted with side airbags. Rear seat has a folddown center section for longer items. Living in Phoenix, good A/C is a must and the Subaru's works great in 110 degree days. Great Car.

Solid at speed

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

Have an 04 WRX auto. Very fast and rock solid at speed. Replaced oem tires with Firestone SZ50 - big improvement in handling and looks. Seats look good and hold you in, but not that comfortable for long trips. Some minor problems including annoying dash rattle.Overall build quality could be better. Premium stereo still sounds tinny.
