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


I looked at the WRX wagon initially, but
decided the extra $4000 and higher
insurance rates weren't worth it. The
TS is a fun, sporty driving car with the
benefit of AWD and the Insureance
Institute for Highway Saftey best crash
rating. I like its "quirky" styling
because you don't see much else like it
on the road. The 2.5l engine provides
plenty of power for freeway driving and
the mountains. Much better than the
Saturn its replacing. The back seats
might be a little cramped for adults
over 5'7" on long trips and I'd like to
see alloy wheels and keyless entry made
standard, but those are my only major
gripes. Very solid, fun car to drive.

Best Features

AWD, styling, the storage area, the handling, decent mileage for an AWD vehicle (ave. 26mpg on mixed highay and city driving).

Worst Features

Small back seat, antenna should be built into the back window, no standard alloy wheels or keyless entry.
