2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I expect to put about 250,000 miles on
this car at a rate of 50,000 miles per
year driving the car for business. If
you don't mind a taut suspension, the
car accelerates briskly and handles
brilliantly regardless of weather or
road conditions. I used to drive a 99
Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT and this car is
much livelier although the suspension
is less forgiving on rough pavement. If
reliability, AWD and the "fun-to-drive"
factor are high priorities for you,
then give this car serious
consideration. Its back seat is cramped
for adults but can be used for smaller
children. If you want a more sedate
ride, then check out a Legacy.

Best Features

AWD, performance and handling, reliability and Subaru reputation. Note - Subaru of America repaired an A/C compressor on my 99 Legacy--outside of the warranty period--because they felt that it shouldn't have failed. Subaru earned a customer for life!

Worst Features

Have options, which should be standard, such as fog lights, the extended armrest and the spoiler port installed. Subaru should be embarrassed by the way their otherwise excellent dealers try to gouge for installing options.
