Vehicle2005 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI've had my WRX wagon for 2+ years, 20K miles. No repairs other than scheduled maintenance. Two minor factory recalls. Clutch feel is not the best and sometimes there is a little "judder" before car warms up. Some complain of turbo lag, but this is not a problem for me. Just keep the revs up and power is always there. Shifter could be smoother, especially into reverse. I hear short throw shifter is better.Handles very well and is fun to drive. Wagon design is very practical and with roof racks can haul lots of stuff for a car this size. Gas mileage 17 city 26 highway. This is a good car.
Best Featuressecure, solid cornering and road feel. versatility of wagon design. reliable, well made overall. No squeaks or rattles.
Worst FeaturesSeat needs more lumbar support, otherwise comfortable. Clutch and shifter feel could be improved. Clock in dash is hard to read. A six speed trans would be useful for those who expect to repeatedly exceed the speed limit or race the plethora of fast cars out there these days.
