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


I bought this car new over 2 years ago,
for an OK price. So far I have had no
mechanical issues, no failures or
anything abnormal. The car is great.
It has some small quirks, at idle the
heater doesn't work really well, the
A/C compressor kicking in is a little
harsh in traffic. The clutch will
shudder when cold and most dealers will
fix this under warranty. Fuel economy
is less than stellar, there are some
rattles that can be fixed, the window
may squeak when rolling it down/up and
the floor mats refuse to stay in
place. The car is a blast to drive,
great in all weather conditions and (if
you can ignore the small problems) is
an excellent car for its

Best Features

The power, the versatility (toss a roof rack on it and it'll haul a mattress/bikes, etc) and can fit a good bit in the trunk, the fun factor of driving it and the amount of features available for the price.

Worst Features

Higher line stereo (available subwoofer doesn't do anything), better (bigger) cup holders, better clips to hold the floor mats in place, fix the window squeak issue.
