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


At initial purchase this was the most
bang for the buck in my price class.
Although the styling might be taken as
dowdy by some, this car is the swiss
army knife of vehicles. I commute 110
miles each day(80 highway, 30 dirt) and
I find the car very comfortable. Gas
mileage could be better. The motor and
AWD are the big reasons to have this
car. I've put 25,000 miles on this car
in less than 4 months and it shows no
signs of slowing down. The car will
see action in both auto-x and rally-x
this summer. The most amazing thing is
that with an experienced driver at the
helm I have never seen a faster car
down a dirt road..."UNCLE!"

Best Features

The AWD and sport tuned suspension (with 8" of travel!). The boxer motor. Comfortable, if uninspiring cabin. Ease of maintenance, very well thought out mechanically. Oh yeah! Cargo space. This car flat out hauls, speed wise and cargo wise.

Worst Features

A little more noise insulation, it can get a bit droney on a long road trip. Better routing of the plumbing that brings fresh air into the cockpit (it always seems too warm) and better headlights, for the velocities that this car encourages it deserves, no, requires better lighting.
