Great car for the money

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


This is one zippy car for the price. I did replace the factory tires with
Yokahamas, but it is stock otherwise. Good seats, interior is fine, standard
package is loaded. Handling is great, with the ability to get rid of the
understeer by accelerating through the corners. The 4 wheel drive is the
key. Minor complaints are the somewhat mushy shifter and gas mileage is
only about 22mpg (with premium fuel). I bought it because it was about the
only car that both Car and Driver(a great driver's car) and Consumer
Reports(reliability) liked. And it's a lot cheaper than an Audi Quattro.

Best Features

Acceleration, handling, visibility, reliability

Worst Features

Better shift linkage, get it to run on regular fuel.
