2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


We have about 10,000 miles on the 2.5TS and are pleased with the appearance, handling and the AWD. The performance is only average as the HP is not adequate for the weight of the car and the AWD. We also purchased a new Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart and it has much better performance with the same power. We have some problems with the Subaru that the dealer says are normal,after short trips the car gives off a strong rotten egg odor from the exhaust (catalytic converter), we are also getting very poor gas milage with the car, about 14 miles to the gallon.we would not consider buying another subaru as the dealer is not willing to help us with our problem.

Best Features

AWD, handling, winter safety, styling,and visibility.

Worst Features

I would recommend the standard transmission over the automatic as the power is not adequate for an automatic transmission.The car dints easily as the sheet metal is thin to reduce weight. The black paint scratches very easily. Dealer and warranty service has been a problem
