2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I still love driving this car, and I
can't wait to drive it to work. I did
install aftermarket speakers and
XM radio. The car still needs a nice
tint of the windows, and I bought some
nice Michelins to replace the stock
Potenzas. Reliability is fine. I
have only had to replace a set of
brake shoes. Car handles very well,
but does need a little tweaking in
extreme cornering. But what car that
costs under 25000 dollars corners like
a Subie WRX? Not many! All is well
with the sport wagon WRX I even like
the first design better than the new
design, seems to have more personality
than the refinesd version out now.


Best Features

AWD, turbo charged bliss, nice Momo steering wheel, nice sporty seats, scoop on top like a retro funny car, I know many people rather have the air forced in from the bottom like the EVO, but I like the functional scoop at the top, personality of the car shines through.


Worst Features

Low end acceleration before 3000 rpms Less understeer on hard corners, higher quality fog lights and headlamps.

Review

Have had problems with the brakes,
fuel line, the clutch problem everyone
reported, interior buzzing noises make
me crazy, windows seem like they are
going to fall out when cold, driver
floormat binds behind pedals, heater
is poor, cd player defective and had
to be replaced. And that is within
only 13000 miles! Performance is good
only when turbo kicks in, otherwise
its just a 4 banger.


Best Features

Good all weather vehicle, good gas milage.


Worst Features

Maybe the problems were fixed in later years but looks like Subaru was in a hurry to put this lemon out.

Review

This is a great car. Handles great
even at its absolute limit. Quality is
second to none and the fit and finish
are excellent. This car is a
performance oriented car that is made
to handle brilliantly and be a fun car
to drive. It is not a luxury car and
if that is what you are looking for
pass the WRX buy, but is you know what
you are getting into this is a great
package.


Best Features

Engine performance and handling. Excellent grip levels in any type of weather.


Worst Features

Transmission gear ratios too far apart.
