2005 Subaru Impreza Sedan WRX AWD 4dr Sedan w/Premium Package (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Purchased an 05' WRX, absolutely love it. The all wheel drive definately sets it apart from other cars in its class. If you want a fun and comfortable car to drive i would recommend looking into a WRX.


Favorite Features

wheels, looks, power, fun factor, ALL WHEEL DRIVE!


Suggested Improvements

fix the turbo lag, maybe add some more power, more power to the stereo

Review

Trying to keep it under 4000rpms for the 1st 1000 miles. I researched about 4-5 cars the past 8 months and it all came back to the WRX, a little more than i wanted to spend but I just love the car.


Favorite Features

Handling, turbo, All wheel drive, looks, seats. The shifter is not as bad as people say. A drivers car!


Suggested Improvements

Sound system, fold down seats

2005 Subaru Impreza Sedan 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I definitely am enjoying this car. I sold my acura for this car. It is awesome to drive, handles great in street driving. You can definitely dig in to any cornern and feel safe. It has enough power even with the 160 hp version. Smooth shifting, instant response, no delay w\non turbo. So as a daily driver or out for some fun this car can do both.


Favorite Features

Cupholders, upgraded interior are definite improvements. Favorite feature though has got to be the scooby all wheel advantage w\ optimal handling.


Suggested Improvements

MOMO steering wheel standard on all imprezas and add in the security system as standard.

2005 Subaru Impreza Sedan 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Subaru has just lowered the price of the 2005 Impreza RS from last year. They also just came up with a lease price that's hard to beat. So, I leased my first car ever. With it's All Wheel Drive, (AWD) 2.5 165 hp motor, I find it the most fun and safe car I have ever owned. I always knew they were great cars, but I am blown away at the handling of this new and improved 2005 RS from Subaru! Kudos to Subaru.


Favorite Features

AWD,ABS,PW,PDL,CD Player, etc.


Suggested Improvements

For it's price I couldn't ask for more.

Review

So far I've had this car for a week, and I love it! It's so smooth and handles the roads very well. I can't get enough of it's cute and sporty look.


Favorite Features

My favorite features are the subwoofers that it came with so everyone can hear me coming:) The stereo system overall is awesome. Also, the trunk is much larger than you would think.


Suggested Improvements

My friends always complain that there's not much space in the backseat.
