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


Review

Im not gonna go on for hours and fill
this page with its max # of
characters, ill simply say.... this
car is not only amazing in every way
but shows other car producers that
they are far from catching up in
making such a perfect and reliable car!


Best Features

Its engine design, the way everything is connected, just makes you open the hood every day and exam every piece by piece!


Worst Features

Interior plastic could look a bit better, and more space for back seat drivers!

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


Review

This vehicle is absolutely the most fun
to drive. Two guys that I work with
(all of us are in our 40ies) told me I
would love it, and I do!! It makes me
smile every time I drive it. I drove
the 350Z and Infinity G35 coupe before
I bought my STI. The STI will smoke
either vehicle.


Best Features

Performance, handling.


Worst Features

Cup holder location and emergency brake location. The 2005 has changed both.:) They also added the mats and stereo. The stereo I bough is much nicer that any factory unit, plus I added satellite radio (Sirius).

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


Review

Previous car was a 5.0 V8 Mustang and I
can say this car obliterates it in terms
of performance. The STI has a far better
balance of incredible peformance bang
for buck. I believe this car will stand
tall in the Hall of Fame of Japanese
performance vehicles along with
supercars like the Supra. Handling is
porsche-like, braking is so strong its
painful, and acceleration is everything
a horsepower nut could want. After
17,000 miles in 90-100 degree weather I
am very impressed with the Honda-like
quality of this vehicle. Its also much
faster than any Mitsu Evo I've come
across. Mark my words, it is a legend
to-be. It's the '69 Camaro of the future.


Best Features

Acceleration, braking, handling, full seats, 4 airbags standard, spacious trunk, excellent mileage (if you keep your foot of the gas). Transmission is almost too good to be true, the softest shifting 6 speed yet strongest feeling tranny ever! Did I mention adjustable f/r torque distribution?


Worst Features

I wish Subaru would keep the 2004 exactly as it was, but alas, they added more weight and didn't help much with a weaker helical front diff in '05. Other than wider wheels, the handling improvements are non-existent and the wing is still as oversized as ever.

Review

The STI is simply awesome. Very fast,
handles great, has incredible brakes,
and has the functionality of a 4 door
grocery getter.


Best Features

Power, brakes, suspension.


Worst Features

Option of not having the wing. Stiffer anti-roll bars.

Review

Great car if you are looking for a
pure sports car with four doors. I
have had no problems since new and is
the best car I have owned or driven.
I would not trade this car for any
other car that I would have to pay for.


Best Features

Great handling and power.


Worst Features

Recaro seats.
