2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Silver-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Bought the 2005 STI in May of this year. Since then I have noticed only VERY small limitations to the performance of the this car. If you plan on buying an STI, here is what to expect. YES, turbo lag only until you hit the 3000 RPM area; then its a beast. Understeer on tight corners, and vision out the rear view mirror because of the wild foot tall wing, love it! I have to admit coming from all types of American and German vehicles, this car has what it takes to be a real threat to the more exotic cars available and in some cases half the price and to boot economical at the pump! Another little tidbit...you're going to need to invest in floor mats and the better sounding stereo system!

Favorite Features

En route, everything from the function of the dash to the blind spots on either side of the car are great. As far as comfort goes, Subaru did a great job. I enjoy everything from the car's value for the money to the crazy performance and economical stature when compared to cars with 4 more cylinders.

Suggested Improvements

Just fix the understeer; good luck to all new Subby owners!
