2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

i was looking at this car thinking it would be a decent car, i had yet to test drive it and i liked the interior. When i test drove the car i was sold on it, that is by far the fastest turbo 4cyl engine i have ever seen. The price bit my wallet a bit more than i wanted them to, i tried to get the car for invoice but i couldnt get anyone to do that, the best i got was $600 over invoice or around $31k then taxes etc.. i am getting the car for a total of $32,900. I cant wait to open this car up to it's full capabilities but i want to break it in properly and get used to the power so i can control the car and not let the car control me.


Best Features

Power and the interior looks


Worst Features

i would suggest they improve the car a bit more by adding a navigation system and adding the cruise control and radio controls to the steering wheel for easy access, i know that i dont want to take my hands away from the wheel unless i am shifting.

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This is my first 4cy. and I am very very impressed, this car drives like a V-8. The engineering behind this car is truly exhausting,not much was missed. This car can meet anyones driving style, the car can be mild manored if driven properly, if you let the rev's get above 3000 your over the speed limit. This car has truly moved the bar for what a performace car should be. I will have to keep this car for a long time or I will be forced to pay 100k to find something that will compare to the overall performance found in this car.


Best Features

Feeling like I should be wearing Nomex everytime I start the engine. Near Ferrari performance for under 30K.


Worst Features

Pointless, this a limited production 2004 US sales only, that is right there will be no 2005 in the US.

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan w/Premium Package(2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I bouth this car about 4 months ago and i have had alot of fun with it. It accelerates/handles better than a great majority of the cars out there and alsohandles great when compared to the other cars i have driven. I happen to love the stereo system that came with the car (i got the premimum sound upgrade- sub , amp and better speakers)


Best Features

The sound system with 6 CD changer is great as well as the short throw shifter and arm rest extension.


Worst Features

More chip resistant paint. This is supposed to be a rally car isnt it?

Review

What a fun car to drive as a daily commuter. Power will definitly get you tickets if you don't practice some self control. Invest in a radar detector (V1)...saved me a few times already. You WILL get people wanting to race you at stoplights!...don't think most even have an idea what's under the hood :) It's just nice to know that you would win in most cases.


Best Features

Power/Torque, Handling, Brakes, and 4 doors on a car that is so performance oriented.


Worst Features

No Radio (should have a basic radio as a standard feature), no floor mats. minor rattle now and then (seems to be temp. dependent)
