Vehicle2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewA fun and safe vehicle that has been for the most part very reliable. A blessing to drive one of these in IL winter. Problems that I've had: Tend to go through car battery every 2 years. Engine serpentine belt pulley/tensioner replaced at 80K Engine short block replaced at 115k ($elf induced) Paint is very thin and prone to chips. On average I get 22.4 mpg with includes a good mixture of highway and local driving.
Best FeaturesAWD handling Turbo!
Worst FeaturesImprove cup holder placement and qty. Improve factory stereo system. Brakes need refinement. Improve gear ratio on 4EAT auto trans to better mesh with engine/power band. Improve paint thickness/quality Interior material scrathes too easily. Carpeting reminds me of the OEM setup in my 1970 Dodge
