    2002 Subaru Impreza — Really good brake kits on this one, also the suspension is amazing to my taste. I like the torque. Build quality is pretty solid, no squeaks or rattles. Apperance i like, the body gets my nut. Interior is like art work, momo seats and wheel. two tone fabric. Boxy fenders and quarter panels to give it a mean look. love the bug eyes. cant get enough of em. good gas mileage. fill only a couple times a month. i love driving this car. handles very nice. i appreciate that. also this car is very easy to work on. engine bay is nice and open. specially if ya throw on a aftermarket CAI. then ya free up almost 2 feet of space. i go out in my shop all the time just so i can play with it all.

    Pros: Solid suspension, good braking, plenty of torque, good mechanical engineering

    Cons: respectable 4 cyl. but im a big fan of power, could use some more.

    My Review — Since this is a review of the car I own it probably will be completely unbiased. Let's see will start off with, performance: the addition of the JDM STI six speed transmission has really livened up this little two liter WRX. It has much improved torque and acceleration, plus I don't have to worry about breaking it like I did with the five speed. To keep all that speed under control the brembo brakes really help out, stopping distances are much shortened over the stock brakes they can even Max out the dry road grip of my 235 performance tires.

    Pros: Performance, handling, and it's fun in the snow.

    Cons: Minor squeaks and rattles, not 300 HP, dismal 20 MPG highway.

    Fast, Cheap, Fun...but Somewhat Homely. — The 2002 Subaru WRX is one of those faces that you can grow to love over time, especially given its amazing performance. It boasts 0-60 acceleration times in the 5.6 to 6.0 seconds range, depending on what magazine test you read, as well as a variety of after market parts so you can modify its performance and handling to your tastes, mild to utterly insane (400+hp anyone?). It definitely has its quirks, in terms of appearance (bugeye lights) and handling (serious understeer with stock suspension) and features, but I'm definitely glad I've owned one. I just returned from a multi-state road trip and averaged 28mpg on the highway. Not bad for a car with 102k miles! Nothing sounds quite like it either - very unique! I highly recommend the 2002 WRX for someone looking for ample performance at a reasonable price.

    Pros: Fantastic value, and overall well-made car, tons of aftermarket performance upgrades to improve handling and power.

    Cons: Surprisingly heavy (approx. 3200lb!), turbo lag, serious understeer with factory suspension setup.

    Subaru Wrx — Subaru wrx is the best with AWD and turbo charged engine Acceleration is amazing. I have a bigger brake kit which stops like no other. Handling is awesome with the boxer engine. You get all this while still at 24mpg Its like a go kart to drive!

    Pros: TURBO AWD

    Cons: Nothing

    Ownership Of My Subaru. — There wasn't much at all that I disliked about this car. It gave me goosebumps every time I drove it. It was fast, and convenient. Regardless of what people may say, it was an amazingly reliable car. With as much as I beat on it, what happened to it was to be expected. I would have expected it to have literally fallen apart by the time I was done with it. If I had the chance to own another one, I would, and am currently considering foregoing more debt just so that I can own another one.

    Pros: Reliable, moderately quick car.  Convenience of a sedan, power and speed of a sports car.

    Cons: stock suspension is somewhat soggy, 02/03 transmissions are known to be somewhat weak.

    Overview — Best car I've owned. Reliability for me is a whole new game, as I've modified the hell out of the car. I modify it, I beat on it, it breaks. Such a hobby drains my bank account, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I cant say much about the reliability of a stock WRX, as thats something I've never really experienced over any period of time. For performance, this thing will go like a bat out of hell (loudly), stop on a dime, and turn like its on rails. In the summer, I run fairly wide autocross tires. Its a rough ride, to say the very least. In the winter, I run Blizzacks, and never once have I gotten stuck in the snow. For some people, the interior leaves some to be desired. As far as I'm concerned, it has cruise control, AM/FM radio, and an in-dash 6-disc changer. The back seats aren't exactly built for an adult male, but I dont have to worry about that. As for appearance, the car is uglier than hell, and I dont let anyone tell me otherwise. However, I built the thing to be obnoxious. Big hood scoop, bigger wing, loud horns, loud exhaust, electronic cutout, external wastegate with an open dump tube, and as of recently, a loud transmission. It is all around obnoxious. And lastly, the fun factor. Well, lets just say theres a fair number of people who wont ride in my car. Whether it be a straight line or a twisty back road, the temptation to floor the gas pedal is an undying desire, despite how much I tend to do it.

    Pros: Fast, fair on gas mileage (~20/28),incredibly  fun, reliable (in a relative sense, for me)

    Cons: Loud, ugly, expensive (again, in my case), tempting, attracts lots of police attention

    Wrx — I love my car. It goes fast and has AWD. Plus, 4 doors which is cool for driving people around. The seats take your body in and hold you there no matter what corners you attempt. I love when you hit the RPM range where the boostu kicks in and the car comes alive.

    Pros: Quick, grippy, economical

    Cons: Could get better mileage

    2002 Subaru Impreza Wrx — My car is so fun to drive...best car I have owned. It's a lot faster with the upgraded exhaust, downpipe, blow-off valve, and a bigger top mount innercooler. Won't recommend the car though if you want a lot of room, or good gas mileage. This car standard get 21 MPG on highway and it's a 4 cylinder...but that's the price I pay for having a fun car.

    Pros: Fast even when stock, but faster with small upgrades.

    Cons: Bad gas mileage, and it's not an STi!
