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


After my VW GTI gave up the ghost, it was time to look for a suitable replacement. Having had VW's for so long, I looked around and test drove the much written about WRX, in wagon form. What a fun car. Strong acceleration and handling. AWD. Hatchback versatility. Good fuel economy. Now after some 9,000 miles in 6 months that included hot summer trips, great fall getaway drives and snowy commutes, I can say "what a great car!" My only true complaint about the car, which has been voiced in other forums, is the decidedly WEAK A/C. The car just never seems cold enough inside on 85-95 degree days.

Best Features

1) All Wheel Drive 2) Turbo motor. mmm 227 hp! 3) Hatchback versatility 4) Good fuel economy despite a heavy right foot

Worst Features

1) A/C system - just not strong enough to cool the car on hot summer days. 2) The optional upgraded stereo is not as good as the competitors - too few speakers and not enough power.
