Pros: Acceleration; Re-Designed 2004 Front lights and Rear Lights
Cons: Placement of Cup Holders
Advice: Get It!Great test drive. Awesome car i would suggest it to anyone looking for a car priced under $25,000 (U.S.D.).
Pros: spooling up the turbo with a rev and slipping it up a gear......
Cons: the flimsy sun visors
Advice: get the base model station wagon. It rocks the hardest.truly fantastic; all dreams fulfilled in a package so innoculous and benign. It screams and growls.
Pros: Driving feel, acceleration, comfortable seats, having the feel of not being able to wait to drive it again after parking it in the garage.
Cons: Back seats don't recline to increase possible trunk space, poor gas mileage in the city, possible short-life of turbocharger.
Advice: Leave extra money for speeding tickets. You'll need it.Be sure to save money for speeding tickets! It is surprising how much power it has from a 4-cylinder engine. The WRX has a very smooth ride even when taking curves at much higher than legal speeds. It grips the road like almost no other car I have driven before. Test drive it once and you will be aching to get one. Test drive it twice and you might as well get out the checkbook for your down payment. It blew the other cars I test drove out of the water. My only concern is if the turbocharger will last past 60k miles. Also, acceleration doesn't really kick in until revved over 3000rpm.
Pros: Turbo Power!!!
Cons: It's a little hard to get in and out of.
Advice: Go for the manual transmission!Power, Power, Power...and it handles like a cat. I can't imagine owning anything else
Pros: power and front seats
Cons: stereo only 80 watts
Advice: get itabsolute worth it.great performance.i like the goofy look.most people don't expect the quickness of the 'little subaru',so that makes it even more fun.i had a mitsubishi eclipse gs before .forget about it.run to get one.
