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


Very impressed with the power of this
car. The 4 cylinder makes the most of
the 165 horses. I never feel at a loss
for power. Passing on the freeway is
effortless. Also very impressive is the
handling and overall tight driving feel
of the car. It has a fat leather
wrapped steering wheel that's very
responsive, supportive seats that hold
you in place while zipping through
tight corners. And the growl of the
engine is purrfect. Negative
impressions: The cockpit is a bit
tight. I have to be conscious of
banging my rear into the center pillar
getting into the car. The manual
shifter is a bit stiff at times. Hoping
it will break in with time.

Best Features

AWD. Most popular options are standard, like ABS, a CD player, remote keyless entry, alloy wheels. One option that is not standard, but definitely should be is the ridiculous arm extender that costs about $100. That's like selling a bicycle and charging extra for the seat.

Worst Features

Offer a two door model.
