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


Review

i was looking at this car thinking it
would be a decent car, i had yet to
test drive it and i liked the
interior. When i test drove the car i
was sold on it, that is by far the
fastest turbo 4cyl engine i have ever
seen. The price bit my wallet a bit
more than i wanted them to, i tried to
get the car for invoice but i couldnt
get anyone to do that, the best i got
was $600 over invoice or around $31k
then taxes etc.. i am getting the car
for a total of $32,900. I cant wait
to open this car up to it's full
capabilities but i want to break it in
properly and get used to the power so
i can control the car and not let the
car control me.


Best Features

Power and the interior looks


Worst Features

i would suggest they improve the car a bit more by adding a navigation system and adding the cruise control and radio controls to the steering wheel for easy access, i know that i dont want to take my hands away from the wheel unless i am shifting.

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


Review

This is my first 4cy. and I am very
very impressed, this car drives like a
V-8. The engineering behind this car
is truly exhausting,not much was
missed. This car can meet anyones
driving style, the car can be mild
manored if driven properly, if you let
the rev's get above 3000 your over the
speed limit.
This car has truly moved the bar for
what a performace car should be. I
will have to keep this car for a long
time or I will be forced to pay 100k
to find something that will compare to
the overall performance found in this
car.


Best Features

Feeling like I should be wearing Nomex everytime I start the engine. Near Ferrari performance for under 30K.


Worst Features

Pointless, this a limited production 2004 US sales only, that is right there will be no 2005 in the US.

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan w/Premium Package(2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I bouth this car about 4 months ago
and i have had alot of fun with it. It
accelerates/handles better than a great
majority of the cars out there and
alsohandles great when compared to the
other cars i have driven. I happen to
love the stereo system that came with
the car (i got the premimum sound
upgrade- sub , amp and better speakers)


Best Features

The sound system with 6 CD changer is great as well as the short throw shifter and arm rest extension.


Worst Features

More chip resistant paint. This is supposed to be a rally car isnt it?

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

I've had the '04 WRX for almost 2 and
a half months and one thing is
clear...this car MOVES. The car's low
center of gravity and excellent
handling makes you feel like you no
longer obey the rules of physics. My
last car was a BMW 525i, and the subie
puts that car to shame, especially
considering it cost tens of thousands
of dollars less. The only other car i
could imagine myself buying in the
future is the STI.


Best Features

Steering response, Turbo Power, AWD, sport seats, and thick Momo steering wheel.


Worst Features

Wish the car had a 60/40 fold down rear seats to fit bigger things, better cupholders, and xenon head lights.
