Goes Fast, Grinds Faster
By Baoh on


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


This car has great power, handling, and
seats. It's great to drive, but 4th
gear synchros went out at about 23,500
miles, were replaced under warranty,
and now, 2000 miles later, the 1st and
4th gear synchros are both out and the
car is in the shop right now under
warranty. It makes no sense that the
new ones wouldn't last as long as the
original ones. They aren't replacing
the tranny, just repairing.

Best Features

Seats, Handling, POWER, shift feel

Worst Features

Grinding transmission, reliability, being told that they wouldn't fix the problem if it shows up again.
