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


This was my "realistic" dream car thanks to the FIA WRC. I've had it for 2 years now and still love every second I'm behind the wheel on it. The only problems I've had with it are that the paint is kinda weak and a bulb in my headlight and two in my taillights have gone out. Engine wise, it hits 6,000rpms or more at least once a day and has done so happily. There is a very minor occasional squeak on really rough potholed roads but 99% of the time it is squeakless. Build quality is excellent. The AWD is fantastic. I would recommend this car to anyone that loves to drive.

Best Features

Turbocharged boxer engine, excellent handling, AWD traction, great resale value, reliable, decent gas mileage.

Worst Features

Weak paint, boring interior, seats aren't comfortable on long trips, cupholder for large drinks is positioned horribly above the stereo head unit and is flimsier than I would like.
