2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan w/Sport Package (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


This car is awesome to drive. It is fun, and provides good handling and feel for the road. Not recommended for driving over bumpy roads, unless you want a sore behind. A bit rough, definitely not a luxury car. The interior is cheap; for my car, the seat material was wrinkling up (got it fixed through warranty), drivers visor mirror fell off, stock armrest extension not secured well to the car (quite fragile), and several other issues. This car was definitely meant to be modded (modified).

Best Features

Looks good. Handles good. Fun to drive. Loves snowy conditions.

Worst Features

Put the shifter back a bit (within arm's reach), unstiffen the clutch pedal so people don't bust a knee. The interior parts are low quality and some items are hard to access.
