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


Review

This car makes me want to drive. I
have owned several sports cars in the
past, but this wagon has the best
overall feel.


Best Features

Can't pick, I like them all.


Worst Features

No need, Subaru is ahead of the game. They did almost everything that I would suggest with the new STI.

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


Review

I have had two other turbo 4cyl cars
over the years and this one appealed to
me. The looks are kinda cool and
performance is stellar for a car of
it's size. I ended up with the stereo
upgrade by accident and do not regret
it, although it is slow to switch
between discs it has very good quality
sound. It is a little tight getting
into for a 6'2", 245 pound guy, but
seating position and interior room are
fine. I felt that the smallish front
doors were a little price to pay for
the total package. The wagon is about
100 dollars a year more to insure than
a Ford Focus, not bad for 100 more
horses and lots more car overall.


Best Features

Pleasant exhaust note, nice seats and room to drop my gear in the back without having to dig heavy boxes or bags out of a trunk. Plenty of zip without attracting the attention of traffic cops or teenagers.


Worst Features

Bigger front doors and more factory insturmentation. This car really needs a boost and oil pressure gauge. ANY dealer installed equipment was at rip- off prices locally.

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


Review

This car is so fast and hadles just as
good as any supercar out there
especially in the rain. This car
deserves all the great remarks and hype
it gets. I have only had mine for two
months and I love it.


Best Features

The power is obviously the favorite about the WRX along with the rally type body style. Everything goes together with this car


Worst Features

I don't feel that this car needs any improvements. You definately get what you pay for.

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


Review

Excellent performance while going
through the bends on the mountain roads
near Yosemite. Can't really enjoy the
performance on regular roads - too much
slow moving traffic! Cool to turn 90
degree corners while driving at 45mph :)


Best Features

My favorite time is when the revs are between 3000 and 6500. Front seats hold you well. Handling on any/every bend.


Worst Features

Low rev torque (supermarket trolleys can outrun me from the lights if I don't keep the revs up). Need blister front guards on the wagon. Smoother suspension on freeways (but not at the cost of handling bends).

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


Review

I have just purchased my WRX, due to
moving to CA and having my '00 Civic Si
stolen. You barely hit the gas and
you're gone, I was so used to whining
up my civic to 7-8k rpm's to get good
power. I am super satisfied with the
car, I thought I would be a loyal Honda
owner forever, but subaru has taken its
place. Broke the car in for 1000 miles,
then took it out on the racetrack for
the weekend, love the way no power is
wasted with the AWD.


Best Features

Versatility of a 4-door, yet performance of a 2-door.


Worst Features

Car should include painted side-under spoiler, and better looking wheels standard. Would prefer to use less expensive regular unleaded instead of premium.
