Just wait until you downshift...
By johnlee on


2005 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Patiently waiting until I can drive this
car past 3000 RPMs. Great car, smooth
acceleration, awesome handling, with
very clean exterior design. This car is
perfect for driving safe,and also lets
the person have fun when they want to
downshift and have the turbo kick in.
Not driving past 3k before turbo spools,
I can push it to close to 29-30 mpg. yet
when your curising at 3000, downshift
and the turbo pulls you forward....GREAT

Best Features

Seats are pretty comfortable, nice tight feel. The turbo hissing as it spools up, and the rumble of the boxer engine make this car a blast to drive. Awesome handling, as it is AWD.

Worst Features

Sound system needs a clearer midrange, brakes that have more bite, and the trunk and hood (made of aluminum) feel as if they are ready to warp/bend at any second.
