1yr later and I'd buy it again
By Rocko on


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


Thought I'd throw in my 2cents after
owning this car for a full year. Bought
new in Feb 02 and is honestly some of
the best money I've ever spent. Great
acceleration, nice compromise of
handling and comfort, and ohh, the Momo
steering wheel. Seriously, this has to
be one of the most meatiest factory
steering wheels in any vehicle. I own a
5 speed and could live without the
clutch shudder, which is my biggest
gripe. But at the end of the day, if it
were ever stolen or totalled, I would
be rushing out to buy another.

Best Features

AWD, Turbo Motor, Momo wheel.

Worst Features

This car needs a clutch recall. If you follow any internet threads of owners that have had a 5speed for 10-20K, some even less, you will find that most have a cronic clutch shudder (skipping/slipping) when the car is cold/sitting for serveral hours.
