2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi AWD 4dr Sedan w/Gold-Painted Wheels (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Pros: blistering acceleration, sharp & responsive handling, build quality, seat comfort, tight & precise shifter, excellent brakes, standard equipment level (for this type of vehicle), good a/c & heater, fuel economy (24-25 mpg mixed driving), all wheel drive, excellent price considering overall performance and amenities. Cons: punishing ride on anything but smoothest of roads (jarring, skips, & kicks), poor sounding audio system, extremely short tire-life, poor paint quality, rear seat does not fold down for pass-through.

Best Features

Intercooler water sprayer, 6-speed manual transmission, exterior/interior appearance & trim, Brembo brake system, height-adjustable headlights, adjustable gear differential.

Worst Features

Better quality paintjob, more forgiving ride without sacrificing handling, tires with longer life, better sounding audio system, collapsible rear seat or pass-through feature.
