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


Review

This car has a lot of power. That is
probably the selling point for all
buyers. I only have 900 miles on it
and I'm currently getting around 16
miles per gallon which is still
horrible. When the optional STi short
shifter was brand new it was VERY
notchy and hard to shift but its
improving. The lock on my trunk doesnt
always unlock itself when i use the
alarm and this is becoming very
anoying. Besides that the car is a
overall good buy and I'm satifyed. I'm
glad I chose this over RSX Type-S.


Best Features

Power, Pearl Blue, Turbo, Momo Steering Wheel, Comfortable Seats, Armrest, Center Tach, Boxster Engine Tone, Aluminum Pedals, Visibility


Worst Features

Fuel economy (I dont even drive it hard), Rubber window sills look like they wont last, Shifter could be smoother, Radio is average, Long clutch

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


Review

This is a wonderful car. Fun to drive,
handling is fantastic and it is faasst.
The WRX is a trend setter - notice how
many new turbo cars are now being
offered - and few are AWD. It's a great
bang for the buck. I have the WRX with
the premium package and the car was
still very reasonable. If you're
looking for a reliable, fast car with a
lot of punch, and a car with a lot of
character - the WRX is worth
considering. The new look (non-bug eye)
is more my taste than the 2002 and 2003
style. The only con to the car is that
the interior can be made a bit more
substantial looking, and that the sedan
doesn't have 60/40 rear fold down
seats.


Best Features

Love the engine - very fast. The car is easy to upgrade if you're interested in even more power. Great dash and like the upholstery.


Worst Features

Needs a 60/40 rear fold down seat. Upgrade some of the interior features - i.e., door handles - cheap looking plastic.

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


Review

This is one fantastic car. The
handling is phenomenal, the
acceleration is awesome - it's a blast
to drive. I feel so safe in the car.
It responds incredibly well. I tested
a lot of cars before I got the WRX,
such as the Accord V6, Celica GT-S,
Mazda6 S, (and others) and none of
them compared to the WRX's
performance. It's a monster AWD
performerIt's a great bang for the
buck!!!!


Best Features

AWD (of course), Gauge Cluster (center Tach), premium package is wonderful, and the bolstered seats are great.Superb handling even in inclement weather.


Worst Features

Definitely need to get 60/40 fold down seats, 17" rims should be standard,the door handles are cheap plastic.

Review

It has been an excellent vehicle. The
car is very good in the dry and snow,
and phenomenal in the wet. It feels
very solid, and I have had no problems
during the 57000 miles I have put on
it. It is very fun to drive, gets
decent fuel mileage, has plenty of
interior space, and is a very parctical
car. When you wear out the OE tires, I
strongly recommend some high
performance tires like Bridgestone
Potenza 750s or S-03s. They make a
great dry and wet car even better.


Best Features

All wheel drive, engine, In-dash 6 cd changer, steering wheel, seats, handling


Worst Features

When you wear out the OE tires, I strongly recommend some high performance tires like Bridgestone Potenza 750s or S-03s. They make a great dry and wet car even better. Also, snow tires during the winter if you will be driving in snow is the best choice for any vehicle.
