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


Review

This car is such a fun car to zip
around in. The performance and style is
incredible for only being a four
cylander. The car can rip around
corners and the seats won't let you
move an inch. I will never think about
another car as long as the wrx is
around.


Best Features

Comfort of the bucket seats. The awd turbo can compete with anyone. Its got its own little subaru community. Lots of possibilities for more hp.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage is a little low, especially when you have to put premium in it. Transmission could be a little better. 6 disc cd changer is great but not good enouph sound quality from speakers.

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


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

Vehicle

2003 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first new car and I love
it! I have had three cars before this
one and none comes close to this.
Every where I go I get comments on how
nice my car is. Not to mention it is
quick off the line and really fun to
drive. I love the look on peoples
faces when they see me fly past! My
only complaint is that the back seet is
too small.


Best Features

front seat is verry comfortable, sporty looks, fun to drive, fast, and great on turns really hugs the road


Worst Features

more back seat room, better gas mileage

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


Review

This car is fun to drive. I find
myself making excuses to drive it. I
have done extensive modifications to
it to improve horsepower and
performance and i still get 25 mpg on
the highway. I have never had to have
anything fixed.


Best Features

The engine and handling!!!


Worst Features

The 5 spd transmision is a little vague when u shift from 2nd to 3rd or 4th to 5th if u r daydreaming when u upshift. The premium stereo is not up to par when u crank it!

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


Review

I planned on keeping my '00 Protege
until it died but for a WRX I traded my
reliable economy car for more power.
Generally not rash to buy a vehicle,
when I found a WRX wagon on sale for a
great price I bought it the day I test
drove it. For anyone into spirited
driving on gravel roads, a WRX has no
rivals for the cost. Compared to the
sedan version, the wagon is sluggish but
the utility of extra interior space has
been worth it. Everyone I know who has
considered a wagon and bought a sedan
has since regretted the lack of room.
Fuel economy: 22 mpg day-to-day, 29
highway, 9 when running wide open.


Best Features

Rough road speed combined with poor-weather handling to provide performance unlike any other vehicle in its price range. Sleeper appearance -- unless someone knows what the WRX badging means they generally mistake it for just another Subaru wagon.


Worst Features

Everyone dislikes the dash cupholder, fog light & cruise engage button would be better off on stalks instead of the dash, stereo tuner "dial" should either be a normal dial or just two buttons.
