Fun — Hot color, manual gearbox, all wheel drive, turbo..... few modds..... "the sneeze" upon shifting, noizy, bumpy ride.....0 level of comfort(exept the A/C wich is more a necessety) is equal to huge nuber of adrenalin in the blood..... i also heard it gives great gas milege if you drive under 3k rpm.... hmmmmmm....its a myth(to drive under 3k).... another words you either love this car... or hate it....

Pros: fun

Cons: fun

No Car Is More Fun At The Track And In The Snow — Awesome car for the money. Easy to handle due to AWD. Lots of power although lacking low end torque. The 2002 had little show but everything was functional. Make a great track and autocross car. Only problems were the wheel bearings and clutch which were common problems with that model.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun yet practical

Cons: Econocar roots

Good Intermediate Car. — Love my scuby, I've had 3 turbo charged cars before, this is my favorite one by far. Put a little over three grand into the motor and doubled its power, while keeping fuel economy in the area that allows me to keep it as a daily. Only downside is that the next step would be to swap the entire underbody for STI which would cost half as much as the car itself.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD, 27 mpg, ~450hp, and of course, the boxer sound.

Cons: No STI underbody.

02 Subaru Wrx — The performance was not the best but it was a little fun from 0 - 60 but it lacked power beyond that, i installed all the parts on it so id say quality is medium to good, it looked clean as far as looks, it got medium gas mileage, id say the car was an over all decently fun car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Turbo

Cons: weak transmission

Pros: All Wheel Drive Turbo

Cons: Transmission

Own It If You Can Afford To Own One. — I love the car. It is peppy, handles well, responds well to modifications. I have had issues with it in terms of reliability, but it is a fun car, that is the point. Mileage is poor, and parts are expensive, though.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Turbo and AWD

Cons: Some reliability issues with mine; I am told it is hit or miss.
