Can't go wrong with the STi
By RodSTi on


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


This car is an excellent choice if you are a driving enthusiast who wants a daily driver. The engine pulls good at any RPM, almost feels like there's no turbo lag in day-to-day driving. The car is practical even with its design intent. Four doors and easy to drive make it a great daily driver. The gas mileage may be poor regardless of how you drive, but you will be hard pressed to drive this car like a normal person. The car begs you to push it as hard as you can. The suspension is tight but you can live with it. I have raced that car in autocrosses and the handling is fun, you can achieve oversteer with the right tire pressure. The brakes are also out of this world.

Best Features

Great engine, trans, suspension, and breaks. The aerodynamics really is functional. 4 doors and a good-sized trunk. DCCD does make the car drive like a true rear drive. Finally, this i s a great daily driver and weekend racer.

Worst Features

Lots of brake dust and most importantly, the paint chips easily.
