2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I bought this car because of it's
performance combined with it's
versatility. I work closely with
several different doctors and have had
the opportunity to drive many of their
cars ranging from King Ranch F-350's
and H2's to Z06 Vettes and BMW Z3's.
This STI will easily keep pace with my
friends' Vette, plus I have a back seat
and a trunk and average 25 mpg. This
is the first turbo-powered car I have
owned, but the power deliver seems very
smooth to me. It is very easy to putt
around town in, but even easier to fly
on the interstate with.


Best Features

The boxer engine sound is addicting. Even better is the sound of the turbo spooling up. I like the double overdrive tranny. The lights are like the Sun. I never have to worry about seeing something with no time to stop. The high beams will reflect light over 6/10 of a mile away!


Worst Features

Having the I/C water spray button on the left dash is a reach. First gear tends to rev up way too fast. The ride will rattle your fillings out on the crappy Oklahoma roads. I wish we could have gotten last year's "bug-eyed" model of the STI. It was a little less noticable.

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Subaru got everything right on the
STi! Look at the performance features:
300HP/300ft-lbs TQ, Short-throw 6-Spd,
dual LSD's, DCCD System, Brembo's,
BBS's...the list goes on. The
STi's "fun-factor" is phenomenal. It
is difficult to find a true flaw with
this car. I've had the opportunity to
now drive mine in snow, in which it did
not disappoint (clad in all season
tires).


Best Features

- Bang-for-the-buck factor - Dash Layout (centered tach, built-in shift warning system) - HID's - Ability to plant a smile on a driver's face


Worst Features

The only item that I would ask for would be for the large rear wing to be an option (I would have opted for a notch-back trunk).

Review

life is good... when ordinary joes
(janes) can purchase a vehicle with
this much performance at a
reasonable price what else is there
to say? the car freakin rocks!


Best Features

1. listening to the turbo spooling up while the scenery becomes blurry:):) 2. hearing the faint whine from the turbo while cruising down the freeway 3. adding to the urgency of the aforementioned whine :):):):):)


Worst Features

strobe lights front and back so other motorists are'nt startled when you "appear out of nowhere":)

Review

It feels like an import muscle car.
Tremedous amount of torque for a 4
cylinder import. Everyone that gets a
ride in my car starts grinning and
giggling once they feel the power.
Expressions are always the same. i
couldn't tell enough about this
car......Performance is let's choose
the word awesome. I have had 8
sportbikes and a custom turbo'd S2000...


Best Features

Torque, no need for downshifting to pass people on the highway. Excellent handling. AWD in the rain gives you much more confidence....


Worst Features

Interior, seats are made for larger (wider) people. Doors feel cheap. Keeping the wheels clean? Holy cow these high performance brakes let so much dust out....
