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


After moving to Colorado recently, I
parted with my 2002 Jeep Wrangler to
seek a more cost-efficient source of
transportation that would also do well
in the Rockies. After driving SUV's
over the past ten years, I settled on
my first "car" in a decade. It was a
Subaru Outback Sport Wagon, and I drove
it for a year and loved it. It carried
my dog , bikes, snowboards, and camping
gear all year with aplomb in all manner
of weather. A raise in my salary
coincided with a WRX test drive, and
back I went to the dealership. What I
got was the same, solid Subaru Boxer-
powered vehicle with 25%+ more power,
and incredible handling. Fantastic

Best Features

The power baby...the power. It's also a very solidly built vehicle, and it feels that way on the road. Confidence inspiring brakes and handling are nice.

Worst Features

I want the 2.5L motor with a milder tuned turbo, a la the new Forester. I miss the Outback Sport's around-town torque if anything. Give me back some of the displacement (ie. "oomph"), and balance it with some additional top- end :-)
