Wrx Wagon Review —

Performance- Since my car is pretty modified, I cant base this on comparing to a stock car, but my car will out accelerate mostly any factory car I come across on the road. It runs mid to low 13's in the quarter mile at over 100mph, which is faster than stock stis, evos, camaros, and most corvettes. It also handles like its on rails, and not many cars short of track cars can keep up in the twistys. Build Quality- Build quality is surprisingly good for a japanese compact car, but thats not saying much. It easily beats any domestic manufacturer, and almost can hold a light to german cars. Appearance- Even though my car is putting out more than 315hp, you wouldnt be able to tell it out of a crowd of any other station wagon. The only exterior modifications ive added are gunmetal 17 inch wheels, lowered it a tiny bit, and added some stealty stickers made by the company that tuned my car. Very stealty and surprises many muscle cars. Cost of Ownership- Since I only run premium 92 oct fuel, and synthetic motor oil, it can be a little spendy. But i havent had to do any major mechanical work, and since its a subaru, its very easy to do my own maitnence. Close to 30mpg doesnt hurt either. Fun Factor- No car can compare to the Wrx Wagon for fun. How many other kinds of cars can fit 5 people for a trip to mcdonalds, drive to the track with all your tools and equipment in the back and get 30mpg on the freeway, embarass mostly any car on the road and stay low on the radar with cops? Oh and theres also that subaru rumble and the smile that gets plastered on your face every time you hit full boost...

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

Pros: Performance, handling, stealthiness, cargo space

Cons: None!

Skooby Dooby Doooooo — great car, drove like a train on tracks, 4wheel drive was great, trim was good the boot was a bit small, and you couldnt stop at traffic lights without someone wanting to race you ( shame they never managed to win :-) )

Pros: the drive

Cons: the racers

Rex — soon to be much improved! still essentially stock/unacceptable... that will soon change! with summer comes a cobb - stage 2, helix dp, 3in mid pipe with 3in turn down, 5zigen 17x5in wheels with falkens(oh well they are free) modded intake, groundcontrol koni kit with camber plates. after all this the car will be proper tities!

Pros: lots of power, but of course needs more!!!

Cons: not as nimble as it will be...

'03 Subaru Impreza Wrx — This car has amazing handling capabilities, especially after the Eibach pro kit suspension upgrade. The performance is superior to others in its class. I have an AEM cold air intake and Borla 'hush' exhaust which flow excellent. The car is Very fun to drive! Cost is very efficient. 27 MPG!

Pros: excellent gas milage, performance, handling.

Cons: daytime running lights, need solid tranny mounts.

Excellent. Highly Recommend — My WRX is a great overall car. It gets decent MPG's and the performance is still great. The turbo boosts hard and so far I have had no trouble with the engine. Low maintenance. The car is great to drive because of the handling speed and precision. Highly recommend!!! I personally believe that overall the car would be close to be beat. The AWD is great for Montana winters and also the car is just sweet. Great quality and great performance!!!

Pros: Fast yet spacious and great on gas

Cons: Stereo is easily replaceable but the speakers aren't too crisp

Best Tuner Car Besides A Skyline. — Such a fun car. Great engine that can keep up with a Porsche. Never had it lose control, it sticks to the ground and begs to go faster. Top speed I hit was 160mph and it still had more to give. Get A WRX now!! Tons of Aftermarket parts available too.

Pros: fast, fun, modifiable, inexpensive to buy, handles great, very safe

Cons: expensive to fix, boxer engine makes small repairs such as spark plugs a hassle, premium gas.

Just Recently Bouhg It Though — I like my car I love taking off the road as much as on the road. I love the ground clearance of the outback. it handles better off road and in my driveway! Wished it didn't come with the dents it has but I'm trying to fix it! I hate the stupid window wiper on th back though!!!

Pros: I love AWD

Cons: rear window wiper sucks
