    2002 Subaru Impreza Wrx Wagon — Bought new in May 2001. A good blend of performance and practicality. Has been very reliable with no major mechanical issues. Not the most fuel efficient due to AWD. If you want luxury and high style look elsewhere.

    Pros: fun, practical, reliable, all weather ability

    Cons: fuel efficiency, style, luxury

    02 Subaru Impreza Wrx — performance wise the WRX is great comes stock with 220chp but with a few mods you can put out an easy 280. It has a relitively sporty interior, nice seats and a sweet Momo Steering Wheel. As far as far as price of ownership goes insurance will get you with a sports car cost but the MPG isnt bad stock once you do mods youll loose milage but it also all depends on what kind of driver you are. Fun Factor is unreal its soo much fun to drive all wheel drive makes the car hug turns and make it a blast to drive in the snow.

    Pros: Handling,performance, appearance

    Cons: turbo Lag, Stock tires

    2002 Subaru Impresa Wrx: First Incarnation In Us — I love my WRX, but sometimes it doesn't love me back. This cars' performace really is as good as they say it is, but it has cost me a small fortune to keep it that way. There is a permenent alignment problem. There is a persistant fuel smell problem. I spent $3000 to fix the 2nd gear sincro. I spent another to grand for one fuel injector. There have been multple computer updates. You may think I beat on this thing, but that is far from the truth. To give you an idea how much I baby it, I can say I went 80,000 miles on the original brakes. As much trouble as it has been, it is everything I expected and more. This car has over 100,000 miles on it, is completly stock, has the original turbo, and will still blow the doors off many cars.

    Pros: More bang for your buck than any other sports car, and four doors!

    Cons: Repair costs are high, and this isn't even the STI.

    Loved This Car! — This was the first of 2 WRX's we owned. If we didn't have 3 kids in car seats we would definitely still have one!

    Pros: Great car in every way. Fun to drive

    Cons: The 2002 model had a very tight clutch. Other than that, no complaints.

    Bamf — Great bang for the buck, although nowadays most cars have 200+hp. This car is all about performance, if you want luxury go buy a Hyundai. Also, a great car to tune. I have upgraded the suspension as handling is most important to me, so I can blow by cars as they have to slow down for the curves.

    Pros: handling, torque, power, fun to drive, turbo charged

    Cons: turbo lag, clutch chatter, lack of luxury, broken window wiper, broken glove compartment, bad battery (the last 3 are my fault)

    Opposing My Previous Truck, This Thing Loved The Water. — So much in fact that it martyred itself right after Hurricane Charlie. I go a new motor and had it for another year until the residuals of the flooding became to much of a headache to deal with.

    Pros: Solid amount of power available from the second it was turned on, and it bit into the concrete like it was it's last meal.

    Cons: Weak, weak, weak transmission. The flood created way more problems that would have never taken place. It really is a shame.

    Quick Little People Carrier — I have the automatic trans. so acceleration from 0 kind of sucks. But i've put this little car through it's paces and it rules.

    Pros: Awsome in the corners, especially in weather.

    Cons: Dead stop acceleration sucks if you have the automatic transmission.

    Not A Bad Ride — This was my first NEW car, bought one of the first ones available, I was stoked that you could get a turbo 4 door with AWD at the time. Little did I know 'til later that AWD isn't really that fun unless you're in the wet, dirt, or snow.

    Pros: Good pickup, funky styling, decent handling, plenty of practicality

    Cons: funky styling, a bit of body roll, interior built quality wasn't fantastic. Had a handful of issues that were covered under warranty
