My 2.5RS w/ sport package


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


I bought my white 2.5RS in March 2005. I love it. I drive it everyday. It is a practical car. I'm still breaking in my engine and shift up before 4k rpm. The engine sounds great even under 4k RPM, the ride is smooth, and the handling is responsive. However, the launch from zero of this car seems to be soft ( I guess it is due to AWD torque distribution), and the braking is soft too. The braking is acceptable but NO where near impressive. I may upgrade the brake in the future. You don't get WRX or STI from this one, but you got an Impreza, too. I'd proudly recommend this great car.

Best Features

AWD, manual, sport package interior, fuel economy (non-turbo advantage), Impreza image, practical, daily driving car, rear spoiler, boxer engine.

Worst Features

This car needs More raw power (non-turbo). Brakes needed to be upgraded. A MP3 compatible 6-CD player. Suggestion: Give me the supercharged version!
