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


Tons of fun to drive. It lives up to
its billing - a true modern-day heir to
the pony-car tradition. I would not
trade this in for a Porsche Boxster
even if they were the same price!

Best Features

300 hp, 300 ft-lb; need I say more? The 6-speed is also good, though I would prefer sequential. Perfect car for a single guy who wants to have some fun - but with 4 doors so I won't have to get rid of it if I do decide to start a family.

Worst Features

Unfortunately, the salesperson treated me with what I would almost call contempt. The gigantic rear wing is a cop magnet (I haven't been ticketed, but they follow me around). Had weird problem with steering rack, but service guys were very helpful (stark contrast with the sales staff!)
