What a great toy!
By Robber on


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


After 7k of driving I am still to see 28mpg. Actual between 20 and 26. A couple of instances of gas pedal abuse will drop it to 20. Normal travel is 140 M of hwy each day. Speeds between 70 and 75 = 26. 80+ < 24Seats and suspension are great for cornering and performance driving, but have a negative impact after 10hrs of constant driving (pain begins at 4hrs).An extremely positive car to drive. Great feedback via controls. Great breaking. Have found a tendency to understeer under heavy braking. Tends to oversteer under gas. This works great to tighten a turn up when pushing it. Paid just over 23K-

Best Features

Far too much fun! It feels so controlled in a 4 wheel power slide that I just couldn't stop grinning. Using the gas pedal allows you to control how much the car turns into the slide providing great feel and control.

Worst Features

A keyless entry that works with the key in the ignition! Front seats could fold backward. The gas guage would be nicer if it was more accurate. 4/4 to 3/4 = 120 miles3/4 to 1/2 = 100 miles1/2 to 1/4 = 60 miles1/4 to empty = around 60empty to empty .... my guess another 40 miles.
