First Subaru, but likely not my last!

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


After my VW GTI gave up the ghost, it
was time to look for a suitable
replacement. Having had VW's for so
long, I looked around and test drove
the much written about WRX, in wagon
form. What a fun car. Strong
acceleration and handling. AWD.
Hatchback versatility. Good fuel
economy. Now after some 9,000
miles in 6 months that included hot
summer trips, great fall getaway drives
and snowy commutes, I can say "what a
great car!" My only true complaint
about the car, which has been voiced in
other forums, is the decidedly WEAK
A/C. The car just never seems cold
enough inside on 85-95 degree days.

Best Features

1) All Wheel Drive 2) Turbo motor. mmm 227 hp! 3) Hatchback versatility 4) Good fuel economy despite a heavy right foot

Worst Features

1) A/C system - just not strong enough to cool the car on hot summer days. 2) The optional upgraded stereo is not as good as the competitors - too few speakers and not enough power.
