2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had two Subaru Outbacks. Have
had the rear ball bearing go out
several times after the warranty was
over.
I like the car other than that. Has
anyone else had this same problem???
I wonder if the makers are aware?

2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon 2.5 TS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is the 2nd Impreza Outback
Sport Wagon we have owned,the 1st one
was a 2002 that had 32000m when
traded. The only problem on this car
was a recalled clutch assembly and a
new flywheel. This was handled without
any delay. Our car was repaired and
returned in the same day. The 2004 is
very tight and handles any condition
surface with ease. Subaru's engine
location and the excellent gearing make
for quick acceleration and a smooth
ride. The only complaint I have is the
shifter that comes stock is too loose
and can be a nuisance when trying to
down shift. The good news is there is
an optional short shifter.


Best Features

The interior is comfortable and the car comes with most of your best options, standard. Great Car!!


Worst Features

manuel shifter is too loose and travels too far while driving.use optional one as standard. Closer ratio steering would be nice. Cup holders are a bit tacky.

2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I have been very pleased with my
purchase of a 2002 wrx sport wagon.
The car drives great! It is a big
bang for the buck in my opinion. To
really enjoy the car, get it over
3000rpm and enjoy the world of turbo
charging. Overall a great car for the
price!


Best Features

My favorite features on the WRX - all- wheel drive, fog lamps, 6 CD - changer.


Worst Features

I have a 2002 model WRX sport wagon and it didn't have the option for a sunroof :( . Starting in 2004, there is a sunroof option. My only other suggested improvement would be better paint...after 30k miles the paint is starting to show some wear.

2004 Subaru Impreza Wagon WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

It came to me as a surprise. Without
any plan about it , one night I became
owner of a SW WRX .
Yes, I bought it without knowing
nothing about the car.
Only regret I have : I should have
bought one of these before.
Great fun is the name of the game.


Best Features

Engine - 100% Suspension - 100% Driving sensation - 110%


Worst Features

6th speed should be useful, as in the Sti model

Review

I've only had this car for 8 months,
but I can already say that I made a
good decision buying the car.
Definately a good choice to go with
the wagon. All the power, with all the
versitility and space. I race my
mountain bike all over Wisconsin, and
have never had a problem with not
having enough space. I would suggest
the short-throw shifter and arm-rest
extension as extras that are well
worth the money.

Only gripes with the car is the gas
milage and the fact that it runs on
premium... but don't get the wrong
idea, you don't buy this car for the
gas milage.


Best Features

I am a fan of the 227 horse engine. If you've got the money to do it, go with a bigger turbo, as the stock turbo is quite laggy. The wagon's fold down seats and hidden storage area under the floor mat are nice for someone who camps or hauls a lot of equipment.


Worst Features

So far the only problem I've had has to do with my bike rack not fitting properly on the car. This is a problem only because it is an aftermarket rack, and not the factory Subaru rack. I find that the apholstry in the car is difficult to clean too.
