2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

The joy of life comes from our
encounters with new experiences, and
hence there is no greater joy than to
have an endlessly changing horizon.
(Alexander Supertramp) In my new
subaru I have seen just this. One day
in the city the next racing on the
beach at 70 mph. What a rush. A real
sence of saftey and durability. I
traded my 850 turbo wagon for the wrx
wagon. What a difference. Just as much
power but 1/2 the size and cargo
space. It enables you to take roads
you wouldn't even think of. Small suv
meets sports car with the added bonus
of turbo charged awd samuri, at no
added cost.


Best Features

AWD, Powertrain, durability, fun to drive casually or sporty.


Worst Features

A/C could be a bit cooler. Slight drag with initial take off. Satelite radio upgrade would be nice with a weak antenna in the car.

Review

Going to be a year old soon-car pretty
much lives up to the hype-altough
around town performance isn't great if
you want to keep your clutch, although
once the turbo gets going not much
could keep up. Highway driving is
awesome, AWD is great and seamless-
goes through snow like it's spring time-
what other performance car could you
say that about. Just found out 2005 is
even further improved (too bad for me),
actually looking forward toward next
WRX purchase.


Best Features

AWD, cd changer (although speakers suck), sporty but low key look, utility of wagon, performance, grin factor, side air bags, knowing you have one of the best price-performance cars on the road, highway driving, WRX community, momo wheel, flat-four sound, etc.


Worst Features

Make turbo gauge standard, sunroof for wagon, abs ebd takes getting used to, manual trans could be improved, paint chips way too easily, overall the car's pretty damn near perfect.

Review

I bought this car to replace my 98 GTi
VR6. I have been pleased with the car
so far except that the engine light
came on before the car hit 500 miles.
Dealership says that it's an O2 sensor,
and it's getting replaced tomorrow.
Subaru has a great customer
satisfaction rating.


Best Features

AWD, 227HP, very practical, very stealthy.


Worst Features

Turbo lag stinks. Subaru should offer aftermarket parts that they will cover under warranty like Dodge does with the SRT-4. Fully automatic windows for the driver would be a big help.

Review

The ultimate in compromise vechiles,
take the kids to school in no time at
all. Fun and sporty to drive, while
still comfortable for everyday
commuting. You can even slap some
luggage racks on and it's a great
vacation cruiser.


Best Features

Power and handling, 40/60 fold down rear seat, luggage racks, allot of options are just standard.


Worst Features

Turbo lag, Short throw shifter feels like a Civic not quite as tight or stiff as US/German cars. Make more of the SPT parts as just options for stock models, or just come out with the STi version :)

Review

The engine, once in the power band, is
raw power, serious, and breathless.
The boxer flat-four gives a unique
engine sound reminiscent of the
traditional Porsche 911. With AWD,
handling is phenomenal. Performance
outperforms price and other cars in
similar price range. In fact, the
performance rivals that of cars priced
far higher! Overall, for the price of
such a playful, demonic little sport
wagon, I am extremely happy with the
purchase. Highly recommended for
those wanting a genuinely high-
performing sports car with the skill
to do the tasks of small SUVs!


Best Features

Speed, performance, utility, "sleeper" vehicle, and a mature but fun look.


Worst Features

Improve the quality of certain non- vital components.
