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


Review

After drooling over the WRX I finally bought one and couldn't be happier. An absolute blast to drive but with plenty of interior room so it still remains practical. Before the WRX, I've always driven pickups and was worried that I wouldn't have enough space for my camping equipment, but with the rear seats folded forward there was more than enough room. Really dig the way it doesn't look like sports car, but performs like one.


Best Features

Handling, power, useable space, and the stealth look (nobody expects a goofy wagon to be this fast).


Worst Features

Better stereo speakers, the stock ones are terrible. Stock tires (Potenza RE92) are absolute junk, they can't keep up with the rest of the drivetrain. Both of these problems are easily cured with aftermarket parts.

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


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.

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


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.

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


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 :)

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


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.
