Why buy anything else really?
By chipsahui2 on


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


Just bought an silver wagon and cannot
be happier. Before I took the plunge,
I was skeptical about the gas mileage
as many people complained and gas
prices are not pretty these days (My
commute is 70+ miles a day).

1800 miles and 3 weeks after delivery
date. I don't know why anybody
complained about the gas. This thing
is amazing with gas. I am very close
to meeting the EPA estimates. My first
full tank got 24mpg (already content).
My last was high 26s (360 on 13.4
gallons). For you lead footers, shift
before 3. I still think its enough
power to move around.

Overall, this is one amazing car. I
can't wait until the snow comes. Oh
yeah, it's fast too.

Best Features

Turbo, AWD, Paid a smidgen over $22k with a few accessories. What a deal. Gotta go with the wagon, it's cheaper than the sedan and increased utility.

Worst Features

Where's the all-weather package? Heated mirrors? Heated seats? Not available for the wagon, what gives? 16" wheels are too tame but Tirerack will help me out after I wear out the less than spectacular RE92.
