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


Review

$3000 will make stock WRX into a 300hp
(230whp) beast. Turboback exhaust and
engine management system will yield
amazing 50-60whp gain (dyno proven). I
have 300hp stage 2 WRX and it has
similar trap speed as STi. I am quite
happy with it and it has been rock
solid. With added power, it has never
failed to start up or give any
problem.


Best Features

All wheel drive capability


Worst Features

Car sits too high and interior material seems a little inexpensive for 25k car. Also, model year 2002 is known to have fragile transmission.

Extremely fun to drive car, excellent
throttle response, OMG Cornering, needs
a better premium sound system though...
too much treble w/o enough bass.

Torque and HP are AMAZING from a four banger

Review

I test drove and automatic first, No
fun. Bought a manual, and had the time
of my life. I did alot of research and
poking around for these, and it only
helped me buy this car faster than i
normally would have.


Best Features

AWD, Turbo, Acceleration, In-dash cd changer, fuel efficieny, exceptional handling (or it feels that way comming out of a jeep into it)


Worst Features

Cant think of any

Review

Amazing performance car. I have had a
few problems with it listed below.
Very difficult to shift into first
gear-almost always, but especially in
the cold. Almost impossible to shift
into reverse. Eats oil like crazy
(though not leaking) and the dealer
does not want to admit that it is a
problem. (1 quart every 1,000 miles)


Best Features

Performance


Worst Features

paint quality, gear shift, oil problem

Review

I bought this car used, maybe that was
the first mistake. The second week I
had it, something was wrong with the
transimission. Two months later
something was wrong with the engine.
A month later, the same problem
came back because the dealership didn't
fix it the first time. Now, the
transmission needs to be fix, again. I
take very good care of this car, yet it
falls apart easily. I don't race it
(cause I'd lose) and I don't floor it
every time I drive. It should not be
falling apart so much. I would not
recommend this car considering you'll
be looking for alternative
transportation since it'll
be in the shop every other week.


Best Features

The exterior is awesome. People are always interested in it until they realize it isn't turbo.


Worst Features

Don't buy it.
