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


My previous car was a Honda that went
for 400K miles. A hard act to follow.
The WRX is a hoot to drive and in wagon
form is very practical as a daily

The WRX's handling is amazing,
especially with 17" rims and high
performance tires. Driving this car in
the winter gives you a sense of
security and safety.

To gripe about something, the WRX is
very addictive. You get accustomed to
what it does. The WRX is so smooth and
competent, that it starts to feel
slow. Thankfully there is an abundance
of aftermarket performance options.

I can't recommend the WRX highly
enough, unless you are into spending
10K to 15K more for "prestige".

Best Features

Handling. AWD. 5 speed Shifter (very positive and smooth). Ergonomics -- simple and well designed. Seats. Reliability. Bat out Hell speed. Excellent highway manners. Stealthy.

Worst Features

Heated seats as an option. OEM gauge package that includes a factory turbo gauge. HID lights. SUBARU -- make a STI WAGON!! I'd buy one in a second.
