WRX like a charm
By silverwrxdriver on


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


Purchased this car 10/30/01 and I'm
approaching 14K miles. Impressive 0-60
power; it will smoke stock Mustang GT's
off the line. Huge public appeal; I
even got a thumbs-up from a Harley-
Davidson biker (complete with 2 ft.
beard). Fun to drive on all-surfaces.
Complaints: The shifter and the
interior plastic (a few rattles have
emerged) could be a little tighter. I
have the stock premium sound system
including the under-the-seat sub and it
longs for more power. Also the volume
selector is coarse, there are huge
differences between some increments.
Overall, only minor gripes - I would
recommend this car over and over again!

Best Features

Acceleration, handling, the A/C blows ice-cold, and some more acceleration. Ski-passthru is a nice option and doubles as a great back-seat armrest for adults.

Worst Features

I second the remote-trunk idea! A premium sound system that actually sounds premium (save your money, go aftermkt). 17" wheels should not be a 3K option.
