Vehicle2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI traded my 2001 Outback for this
because I wanted something more fun to
drive (more speed, better handling) and
the WRX delivers this in spades!
Unfortunately, the driver's seat is so
uncomfortable after an hour or so that
it makes me dread taking it on long
drives. After constant fiddling with
the adjustments, I have yet to get
comfortable in this car. On the test
drive, the seats felt firm-yet-
sporty...now they just feel horrible.
Also, the turbo lag can be agonizing
when it's hot outside. It takes a
while for the turbo to kick in, but
once it does, the car takes off.
Best FeaturesI love the steering -- it's extremely accurate and offers great road feel. The rush of power after 3K rpms is addictive! I've never owned a car that could pin me to my seat the way this car does.
Worst FeaturesA wider range of adjustments on the driver's seat would be nice! Without being able to tilt the bottom cushion (only raise or lower) there's no way for me to get comfortable on longer drives. Offer the premium package (heated seats/moonroof) on the wagon!!
