I just bought my new 2004 last week and
all I can say is, WOW. It may be the
smoothest, most fun to drive car I've
ever driven. I actually had given up on
the '03 WRX cause I didn't care for the
front design of the car with the bug-eye
looking headlights and all. Then I saw
the '04 at a big dealer show in my area
a couple weeks ago and I didn't even
realize it was a WRX. Subaru did a hell
of a job on redesigning the body to make
it more pleasing to the eye. Of course
rear passanger space and cargo room are
limited, which is why I got the sports
wagon but that's fine with me since I'll
only be in the drivers seat.
The greatest part about this car is the
ride. Super smooth, amazing
excelleration, and tight turning.
Blowing out expensive sports cars with a
wagon is always fun. Good standard
equipment, comfortable front seats, and
a great new look for the '04 model.
The only problem I have is that they
removed the fender flares on the sports
wagon. Just cause it's a wagon it
doesn't mean it can't have a real sporty
edge to it. I guess the cramped back
seat is suspect but since I'll never be
back there, it's fine with me.
