    2002 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: traction, snow

    Cons: unreliable, costly repetitive repairs on wheel bearing and head gasket

    Advice: dont buy subaru, buy toyota or something reliable, by friend the mechanic loves subaru, gues why?

    I an surprised how poorly the quality control is for subaru. at 15k it needed a new clutch, at 20k it needed a new head gasket, at 10k it needed a new rear wheel bearing, the same replaced bearing needed replacement at 50k, also at 50k it needed new rear knuckles at a price of 600$. now at 55k both rear struts are totally shot, to make matters worse, these are all widley known problems with subaru impreza for years, yet the company doesnt care. been to the dealer many times, never given a loaner car, had to pay for a cab for weeks.

    2005 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Wagon

    Pros: Symmetrical all-wheel drive

    Cons: lack of 'standard' features

    Advice: don't pay more than sticker

    Have only test driven this car (will buy later this year). It's been quite a few years since I had to give up my turbo RX-7, and I figured it was time to step into a fast car again. The blend of function and speed made this car appear quickly on my list. This car was very responsive, quick, no lean on tight curves, and a stupid smile quickly appeared on my face. Cons: for the cost of the base model, you don't even get the spoiler or sunroof (my VW Golf has heated seats and a sunroof), also, the road noise is much worse than the impreza RS. Thirdly, I think the fog lights should be standard and I'm not all that impressed with the design of the back end. Pros: FAST, with LOTS of torque (compare with the more-expensive RX-8). Also, while the RX-8s and mustangs of the street will be stuck at home in inclement weather, this all wheel drive - low center of gravity beast will be flying through the snow and mountain passes. If I have to give up some creature comforts for the advanced performance and engineering, I think it's worth it.

    2006 Subaru Impreza - WRX TR (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The wheels and the turbo

    Cons: Needs more power at lower rpms

    Advice: Buy this car if you like fast&fun!

    The car is a fun sporty ride that will get you noticed. The power at 3000 rpms is a head jerk. Price is right on the money at 23 grand. It is a whole lot of car for a little bit of money!
