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


After driving trucks for years, I
finally decided to get something fun for
the roads, but still needed to carry my
music and camping equipment on regular
occasion. What better than the Subaru
WRX? You get the agility of a sports car
and the utility of a wagon with the same
vehicle. The interior is laid out
intuitively and is very pleasant to the
eyes. Exterior styling is nice, not
obvious to everyone what lies underneath
the hood, which is great. Bottom line is
the car is incredibly fun to drive,
without typical sports car compromises.

Best Features

Engine, handling, and interior look and feel. No traction control or other hand-holding garbage. Great aftermarket support. The steering wheel calls my name.

Worst Features

Steering wheel always a little too low, but not bad. Tranmission a little chunky but not terrible. ABS can get hyperactive and scary on uneven surfaces. Headlights don't aim high enough on low beam. Note that these are minor complaints, this car is incredible.
