Needs refinement- but I love mine!

2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car new, and have put
47,000 miles on it in 2 1/2 years.
The clutch was replaced under warranty
at 30,000 miles for chattering,
particularly when cold (~30-40
degrees). I'm about to replace it
again, but at my own cost. The
gearing is very low, making the car
very responsive to gas pedal movement,
but very jerky in traffic. One more
gripe: the rear seat doesn't fold
down. That being said, it's a blast
to drive, and all wheel drive gives
excellent traction, regardless of
weather conditions. Despite my
complaints, my next car will be
another Subaru. You can't beat the

Best Features

Responsive steering feel, strong brakes, good power and torque. Very competitive price. Even the base models are loaded with features.

Worst Features

Longer lasting clutch that doesn't chatter when cold (if 40 degrees F is cold) Folding Rear Seat!!! Better gas mileage Better tires Better stock stereo Higher quality paint job
