Totally love my blue bean!

2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5 TS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Last year, I test drove 2003 Acura (the
sporty one - apparently it was
forgettable!), Subaru Impreza WRX,
Hyundai Tibouron, etc. Favorite of the
bunch then was Tibouron, with its
comfortable passenger seat. This year
was my turn to purchase a new car...
test drove the 2.5 TS Impreza Sport
Wagon (manual) and absolutely loved it -
my first new car! My only test drive
this year - It was the right choice.
All around, quick and smooth - shifting
took me a while to get used to after
having a 91 Isuzu Trooper. I don't
feel like I'm driving a wagon - more
like a little rocket. Redesigned
headlights are great and significantly
improve the look of the car.

Best Features

Power! Well proportioned-power to overall car size to seat comfort.Height pump on drivers seat is helpful for those of us average drivers (5'3")! Major pluses - AWD, cargo capacity, 40/60 back seats, decent stock CD player, $17,000. 2004 Pacifica Blue much prettier than 2003 blue!

Worst Features

Cupholder in center column barely too sall for a soda bottle; other cupholder is located above CD player - doesn't make sense; gas meter does not ccurately present gas quantity available; CD player is starting to skip too hot; position of center storage box is too far back & awkward.
