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


This is not the fastest car I've owned,
but it certainly does most things well.
Build quality is excellent, my only
problem in 10,000 miles was a cracked
windshield. Gas mileage is ok at an
average of 24mpg mixed city/highway.
The ride is firm but supple and this
car swallows up potholes and ridges
with aplomb, unlike most sports cars
I've owned. Grip is limited with stock
tires but still outcorners most other
cars, in the wet, it's superb!

Best Features

Steering wheel. Versatility of wagon. Boxer sound of engine. Supple suspension. Short throw shifter. Acceleration.

Worst Features

Deceleration noise from trans. 16" wheels look too small in the large fenderwells. Turbo lag is prominent at below 2500 rpm.
