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


I love my STI. Coolest and fastest car I've ever driven. Buying one pre-owned for me was easier on the wallet: car price-wise and insurance-wise. The MSRP for a STI brand new is about $32-33K. Pretty steep for a young bachelor such as myself. The dealer I bought off of started the car at $31k but was willing to crank it down to $29k, which was sufficient. I got a lot for the money; 300hp, dramatic acceleration, great all-wheel drive system, brilliant supercar interior. Just driving it, I forget I'm in a Subaru; it's a velocity dream car that can outrun a 280hp Mustang in the 1/4 mile. I feel really safe in the STi. Get a lot of looks driving down the road. The car looks mean. I love it

Best Features

The six-speed tranny. The interior is awesome.

Worst Features

Nothing major. I'm not a real fan of the rally wing, which I will change. I hope Subaru doesn't fiddle with the overall design at all. That car could make it through a decade and never get old. So many cars have looked the same for the last 5 years; Nissan Altima, VW Jetta, & Mercedes M-klasse.
