2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


It may not be a turbo but it will walk
away from everthing else but the WRX.
Handles great and the suspension is
stiff. Transmition is solid and
precise, no floppy stick. The AWD is
amazing, power on turns on slick or
uneven surface, no wheel spin, just go.
Seats have lots of side support. It is
just a blast to drive. The production
finish on the paint of any car I have
ever seen.


The instrument package is basic on the
RS, fuel level and water temp only. The
radio antenna is painted on the rear
window and has a pre-amp. If you tint
the rear window you loose some
reception. Also if you replace the
radio make sure it has a power lead for
the antenna pre-amp.

Best Features

Just a pleasure to drive, great performance and economy. Incredible quality throughout.

Worst Features

Instrument panel should include oil pressure and battery voltage. Cigarette lighter gets in the way of the shift lever when charging your cellular phone.
