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


I've had this car for about 8 months
now. For 7 months, I drove this baby
660 miles almost every weekend between
MN and IL. I can say that as competent
as this car is as a performance beast,
it is also a collected highway
cruiser. My gripes would be
wind noise (noticeable above
70mph) and long-term comfort of the
seats (on a drive from Chicago
to Denver and back, the padding on the
seat is noticeably flat and
uncontoured). Besides that, it's an
awesome car. So fast it's
silly, yet spacious and utilitarian.
It hauls ass and hauls goods - I fit 3
people, a drum set, and a saxophone in
there. In short, I love this car!

Best Features

Killer acceleration. Killer grip. Killer cornering. Massive cargo capability with the rear seats folded down. All-weather capability. Huge modding potential.

Worst Features

Sore butt after more than 300 miles in the saddle. Fuel economy not on par with other compacts (then again, what other compact has 227 hp...?). Wind noise.
