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


Goes like a champ in the snow.Handles
like a dream.Keep the revs up and the
turbo rocks.Yes the front seats are a
bit uncomfortable on long drives, but
you'll love the way they hug you as you
throw the car into a tight turn at
60mph.Yes the cup holder sucks.Yes
paint quality is average at best.Yes,
the clutch does shutter when cold for a
bit.And yes it would be nice to have
split rear seats (but that makes the
care less stiff).If you buy this car
thinking it is a luxury automobile,
it's not.If you want cushy seats, nice
cup holders, and a smoother ride get a
Caddy and enjoy your early bird special
at Denny's with the rest of your

Best Features

AWD, turbo, handling, brakes are amazing, great stero (if you get the upgrade), looks are unique, highly upgradeable (be careful not to void warranty)

Worst Features

Tranny makes me nervous based on "stories" I've heard, got a couple rattles in the dash (the 15k pot holes where I live have more to do with this than the car), paint does chip easy, skid plate for the engine (ice, snow, rocks could cause problems), upgrade stock intake
