    2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi - w/Gold-Painted

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: CD Player. Has been replaced twice.

    Advice: If you need AWD in a small package, there's none better

    Love my Impreza Wagon. Keep up with the routine maintenance and she'll treat you well. Decent pickup for a relatively economical car, great handling in all weather (I live in New England, so I see it all), and the hatchback holds plenty.

    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!

    2005 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: join the club

    I went to the Subaru dealership with full intentions on buying a 2.5 RS. After test driving it I found it to be great in all aspects. I wanted to see what a WRX was like so I test drove a silver one. I bought it right then. The reliability, power, handling, and versatility are unmatched by any make or model world-wide. I did pay more than i wanted to for any car, but the WRX is not just any car. I now own a 2005 WRX that i drive effortlessly through snow, rain and everything else while laughing at the gas slurping SUV flounder about while using four wheel drive. From environment friendly to your pocket book, every angle is covered. I would recommend the WRX to my mother and my friends.

    2005 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Wagon

    Pros: Having a car that never gets old.

    Cons: ....Ceiling fabric

    Advice: Get the turbo gauge (to predict lag), the short sifter, and the arm rest.

    Ok....where to start.... This car is noisy, lets you feel road bumps and is not the ideal luxury car. However, this car is something that most cars will never be - a sports car that is truely great in bad conditions, that holds a ton of cargo and yet will...ok 0 - 60 in 5.4 seconds. CONS: -Noise -Cheap ceiling fabric -Cd player glitchy once in a while -turbo lag PROS: -Drivers's seat feels like sitting in a fighter jet. Everything adjusts. With the short throw shifter and the arm rest, you can shift with your fingertips! The steering wheel is so soft and shaped perfectly. Wonderful Ergonomics! Climate control is nice! Heater/AC work great. Defroster is fast. Speakers are offset by the noise of the car somewhat, but are high quality. -Over 3000 RPM, acceleration is absolutly incredible; akin to engaging warp drive. Gear ratios picked very well though modulating the throttles interesting with turbo lag. When steering, the car simply does as ordered - no tilting. Great car in traffic; able to shift lanes quickly. Good visibility. Watch the speed though. This car feels at 100 as most do at 45. The turbo sound is intoxicating. Meets EPA mileage. -I packed up my entire life and moved across the country in this vehicle. Plenty of room. Good performance when fully loaded. Great places to strap thing down (and you'll need to in this car) -You can feel the road. AWD works great too. Good ground clearance and somehow low center of gravity. Feels very solid - very rigid. No chassis rattles. -Not a cop finder. In fact, the innocent looks make it that much funnier after you burn the modded civic at the light. Great exterior. Beautiful machine.

    2005 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Wagon

    Pros: acceleration/ride/handling

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: Drive it, you will like it!

    After testing Acura RSX-S, Mini Cooper S, and Neon SRT/4, I bought a Subaru WRX Impreza Sport Wagon. Everything about it seemed better: acceleration (esp. smoothness), ride, handling, finish, interior and sound system. I have owned many sports cars in the 45 years that I have been driving and this is one of the Best!
