2003 Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This car rocks -- I love it.


Best Features

Cornering is amazing, it grips to the road. In snowing conditions, it never slips.


Worst Features

Interior needs some help, my floor mats are terrible and it's a little noisy.

2003 Subaru Impreza Wagon Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I totaled my '99, but it saved my life. I had reservations about another one because it was VERY noisy, the shift linkage was awful and the clutch worked best parked. There were a lot of ignition problems, and the rear brakes were drums. But having two dogs, always had manual transmission, and not wanting to be sitting high off of the ground left me few choices. I ended up with a 2003 with 18,500 miles on it for $13,800. I love it! Subaru addressed every issue but the rear brakes (sigh). It is quiet, no hood scoop, more power, and the best shift linkage I have driven yet. It feels like a Legacy.


Best Features

Shift linkage, solid feel, and quality.


Worst Features

Rear discs, come on, this is the 21st Century, I know you have them, they are on the other Impreza models!

Review

bar none, best bang for the buck going. Test
drive and buy. Thats what I did. You will
love this car. Turbo lag is an issue but with
practice it is somewhat eliminated. Fun to
out -accelerate 90% of the cars on the road.
People unfamiliar with a wrx wagon have no
idea what they are up against. Turbo plus
awd is a winning combination when out
performing other sport cars. I have over
50,000 miles on this car and every morning
it is a pleasure to get in it and drive. I have
never felt this way about any car. Buy one
and you will know what I mean.


Best Features

Awd and turbo. Reliability. Engine can be safely modified.


Worst Features

Better paint. Suggested accessories= A clear hood bra to prevent paint chipping. Have it put on before leaving the lot. 3M makes a kit for the hodd and bumper. Pay the extra.

Review

Beside the known fact that this car is
the best in its class, I'll want to
highlight some problems I experienced
with it.
Front brakes rotors, sipping radiator,
bad paint quality.


Best Features

Every option is driver oriented and useful. The only thing I'd like to illuminate is the parking light switch, which is totaly useless and may cause battery to drain if accidentally left on.


Worst Features

Paint quality
