2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan w/Sport Package (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I have owned this car for 3 years now, and I can honestly say there is no other car in the 30k-45k price range I would rather have. Being in the driver's seat is pure bliss, and the road will bow to your every whim. The turbo engine keeps driving exhilarating, and requires some skill to unleash fully. Interior is spartan but sufficient. Exterior screams "fear me". Fuel economy has been around 22 mpg mixed, which is excellent for such a ferocious car. Have not had a single mechanical issue yet. Take warning: 1. The ride is brutal 2. Car thieves will try to jack your car (3 attempts on my car already!)

Best Features

Back-bending acceleration, super-glue handling, enlightened steering, great front seats, excellent brakes, blue interior, 4 door + spacious trunk practicality, AWD, good gas mileage for a supercar, reliable, envious looks from ricers everywhere.

Worst Features

Shifter is occasionally notchy & gets stuck, power windows squeek, needs steering wheel audio controls. Better stock speakers. Batmobile-like security system is a must.
