Awesome performance
By Jerry on


2009 Subaru Impreza WRX 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Quick, very quick 0-60, and lots of torque at highway speeds. One car mag says 4.7 secs 0-60 and that's not far off, which puts it in a league way above its price. Gas mileage about 24- 25 highway when you can keep your foot out of turbo, otherwise 21-22. AWD grip and handling superb even though the car mags say it is a little soft. Had it since March, got 7K miles on it and have loved every minute.

Best Features

Performance. Only thing that's beat me at the light to next light is a 400HP BMW M3. No one else has come close. It's hard not to grin while driving it.

Worst Features

Stereo is very subpar. I don't even turn it on. I have the regular shifter and its very imprecise and rubbery, but you get used to it. I've heard the optional short throw fixes that.
