This One Does it All!

Vehicle2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewAfter 8,000 miles with this car, I still get excited to take this car out every time I start the engine. The performance is great and acceleration is addicting, especially knowing that it's a wagon. The standard features are adequate, but the 2006 version has much more, but at the cost of a questionable (borderline ugly) front design. Turbo lag is a real issue; the car is just a notch faster than sluggish below ~3,000 rpms. Unless you're launching at 5,000 rpms, expect a slow start until turbo spools up. You can't get a better car for the price. I would not hesitate to buy this one again.
Best FeaturesAwesome performance, decent utility & gas mileage, AWD, widely available performance mods, climate control standard. Car is FUN FUN FUN!
Worst FeaturesMost are taken care of in the 2006 WRX: leather option, 17" stock rims, heated seats/mirrors, sunroof, better lower end torque, outside air thermometer, better transmission/shorter shifter.
