1999 Subaru Impreza RS RS 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

As soon as I saw this car I knew I had
to have it, it was a me car! Thought I
bought it not knowing how to drive a
standard I learned and now I zoom around
town and it I still get rubberknecks.


Best Features

The Rally Blue and the way it looks like it smiles in the front


Worst Features

If it came standard with 17" rims, moon roof and leather interior.

Review

Great handling with decent power. Not
as reliable as honda, but never
quitted on me so that's good. Only had
to change clutch, ABS speed sensor,
and leaky radiator none of these had
me call the tow truck.
Love the styling of the car and it's a
blast to drive.


Best Features

It's super light and nimble. It does exactly what you tell it to do.


Worst Features

stronger clutch, should have been built with the turbo

Review

I've had mine for 4 years now, has
57,400 miles on it, not a single
mechanical problem with the vehicle.
It is a hoot to drive, very zippy. I
pull a snowmobile/trailer with it very
easily. I think this design looks much
better than the WRX.


Best Features

power, looks, AWD


Worst Features

No light in the trunk, back seat does not fold down.

Review

This package of performance, safety,
reliability, and cost can not be
topped. The car is extremely fun to
drive with good torque and HP numbers
as well as close ratio gearing. The
AWD provides excellent grip for summer
fun and winter safety. I have not had
one single problem with the vehicle,
and I am at 37,500 enthusiastic miles.


Best Features

The Fun-to-drive factor, and excellent reliability.


Worst Features

Still a little more HP (too much is never enough!), a better design for the funny seatbelt "extentions" on 2- dr model.
