I Love It — last of the real rally cars. powerful and elegant - needs a stronger chassy but like all jap cars will crumble when its hit. fuel is expensive (400k's to a 60L) and so is upkeep. brakes have been modified - full slotted rotors all round and high composite race pads so brakes like a dream. rear lsd fitted to fix any steering issues. acceleration is blistering and handles like a dream. a crazy fun car to drive and own. Get One...

Pros

Amazing styling, incredibly safe, beautiful handling and traction.  Two-door coupes with sunroofs are hard to find, and this one's worth it!  

Cons

Subaru never brought the WRX level Impreza here until 2002.  As such, this year is missing the power that it had in Japan.

Incredible Car, Built To Be Fun In All Types Of Weather! — Since purchasing this car used, I've had very little trouble with this car. It's beautiful, and handles quite well with the limited slip differentials it has paired to its all wheel drive drivetrain. The car is incredibly safe, and a good 500 lbs lighter than the later Imprezas, making this generation feel much more tossable. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting a sporty and reliable all-weather vehicle!

The Beast — One word to describe this car: Fun. Driving it for 2 months, this subaru impreza 2.5rs is a blast to drive. A roller coaster ride on the on and off ramps. I would say its quick for an NA. This car can tackle through dirt,snow, and tarmac. This car has lived up to its name in the WRC world. Comes with a spoiler to give that sporty look.Good on gas since its a 4cyl. Future mods: Coilovers, Whole Sti swap. volks ce28.

Get The Sedan. — Great car. Totally reliable if not a little ratty. Biggest complains are the rear-seats not folding or having a passthrough, and how dated the interior is. Other than that, the car is well made, easy to work on and a ton of fun to drive.

Wrx 2000 Rwd — Car is great to drive the turbo and AWD are the best features, very fast factory car, also great for tunning up, easy to get bolt on performance parts and a wide range of visual add ons, i would have to say that this model is the best, but thats just my personal opinion

Great Performance For A Few Bucks — Another car I just had to drive to see if it lived up to the hype, etc. when it first came out. I visited my local Subaru dealer (Sierra in Monrovia) and they had one of these on hand. I told the salesman that I was interested in a test drive of the WRX. He said it would not be possible. I asked to talk to the manager and he agreed to a test drive, but they required a credit check. I agreed and I had to wait about 15 minutes for this to occur. We then went out to the car and the salesman naturally had to start the car. First thing he told me was that it was necessary to allow the car to idle for about a minute to allow oil to flow to the turbo bearings before driving off. By the time he had introduced me to the amenities of the car, we were off to the driveway out the lot. We then exchanged places. At this point he told me that I was to turn right four times as soon as possible - basically just make the block. I told him that I waited 15 minutes for them and I was going to take the car for a test drive. I asked him to make sure his seat belt was tight and we were off. The car is very spry and I was always confident that it would follow all commands - acceleration, turning, braking. This was a great car and it was reasonably priced. From a standing start there was a bit of lag for the turbo to kick in, but when it did, it was very strong. I drove the hatchback version which had decent space for 4 people and a little room in the back. It is a nice package and was a lot of fun to drive.

Pros

Sport tuned suspension, great acceleration, great handling, sporty appearance, good gas mileage, sticks out in a crowd of hondas and mitsubishis.

Cons

lack of cup holders.

Sexy — This 2000 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS is a knock out for the pocket rocket family. Its powered by a 2.5L H4 SOHC engine. The engine puts out a solid 165 horses and 166-lbs of torque with awd. The Rally Sport edition comes with an intriguing exterior that is equipped with a rear spoiler, sporty 16inch allow wheels, hood scoop and vents, stylish front bumper with working fog lamps and a moon roof. Although the acceleration and speed is great its also equipped with 4-disc brakes and ABS. The car sits at a nice height with a Rally Sport tuned suspension with front and rear sway bars to increase control on those tight turns in any type of weather. The interior is relatively satisfying with comfortable bucket seats with a sporty two toned cloth followed to the rear bench and the door cards, leather wrapped steering wheel, a decent 4 speaker stereo system and green lit gauges and controls. Although this is a sedan the trunk is quite large for what is expected.
