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

Review

Well designed vehicle! Lots of power, not a v8 so some turbo lag if u don'trev the engine. Grocery getter below 3krpm,but once u hit 4-5k this baby takesoff! The AWD system is terrific! I live in Michigan & during winter I'm passing 4X4pickups/suv's on the hwy @60 mph whilethey are doing 25 waiting for the plowtruck to arrive .The Subie is truly amazing in the snow, I'd say it handles just as well in bad weather as it does during a clear, dry day. Price shot up from $21-28kthough :-( but only a Mustang GT can giveu similar/better 0-60 for the $ but w/o AWD handling or Subaru's bulletproof reliability. Nothing can match its performance or value for the $!

Best Features

2.0L Boxer Engine w/Turbo, AWD, Turbo Gauge on steering column, MOMO SteeringWheel, MOMO shift knob (optional), Functional Hood scope (feeds intercooler), lumbar racing seats (std).

Worst Features

More shoulder room for driver. Armrest is flimsy. Diff color illumination for gauges (Red would be nice). Get rid of fake aluminum finish. New design for cupholder (sticks in bad weather and too small).
