2004 Subaru Impreza Rs "zoro" — It has good handling, good speed, not sure if its stock engine, but overall awesome car. The only thing is i want a spoiler, and i want it to make it sound like its fast without actually being to fast. Any Suggestions?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its look

Cons: Nothing

I Love My Subaru — My Subaru Impreza is a fantastic car, It corners like a dream, has impressive acceleration, It gets good fuel economy, It has never needed more than a normal service and is so much fun to drive, especially fast around corners

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

Pros: Manouverability

Cons: It has an Automatic gearbox, but I blame the Ex for that as she could not drive manual

I'll Be Sad When I Have To Get A New Car — I love my car! You feel in complete control, even in snowy conditions. It's super quick off the line, which is fun (unless you get beat by a mom in a minivan, but I wouldn't have any experience with that...) I've had hardly any maintenance problems.

Pros: You experience the fun of what driving should be

Cons: you get a lot of unwanted attention from police cars

My Scooby — I love this car, most people would frown on it as it is not the turbocharged WRX or STI. I however prefer this car as it gives me more room to improve on what is already an outstanding car. It is built very well, I'm going on 72000 miles and have had no problems (at least ones that I have not directly caused lol)

Pros: Everything

Cons: I've al but trashed the bodywork

I Would Choose My Suby Over My Wife... — Dumped the 2002 Celica Rice Burner after one year cause it couldn't drive in the snow. Very impressed by the all wheel drive system, acceleration, suspension, quality and price. Have made countless modifications and improvements to make it my own and to make it pwn!

Pros: Low end torque to get moving, awd, lateral support in stock seats, quick gearbox, bullet-proof EJ25 engine, aggressive stance, responds to bolt-ons fairly well, blistering acceleration.

Cons: Stubborn factory ECU is difficult to tune, engine parts are specialized/custom and expensive, most parts are made for the EJ25#T, not the NA motor, runs out of steam at 90MPH

Thats The Perfect Car — Indeed its the great car to drive. I have 1.6TS with complete STi bodykit inside and out and compared to 1.6 litre engine of any other cars the stability the control and fuel consumption is quite qood for the torque it produces. The built in turbo after 3000rpm on 3rd gear makes the car marvellous

Pros: Its a Subaru, that says it all

Cons: I dont find it any, but the leg room for tall guys at backseat might be. But who cares if you looking for a car which gives you all the safety, stability, performance and much more than any others in the whole world

Nice Car For A Local Use — I've drove this car for about 2 years. It's a nice and pretty small family car, that runs good, but that's it. It's pretty weak and the automatic gear is not the best I've used... It has a good grip on the road even in high speeds.

Great Car — Great car! The performance of the 2.5 H4 engine are good. The engine is noisy when solicited but delivers what's expected. The maintenance cost are high as you have to maintain your Subaru very well for it to be on top of its art. But as the vehicle is very reliable, you don't spend much on repairs. The Subaru Impreza Outback Sport looks bold and robust as it is.

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

Pros: Winter handling, performance, fuel economy (considering the AWD)

Cons: Radio  quality(a joke with the initial price of the car)

I enjoy driving this car. I test drove the Mazda 3 and chose the the Impreza because it had more comfortable back seating. Read More

The only thing missing on the Limited model is a power passenger seat. Everything else is great- ride, handling, gas mileage, interior room. Read More

Review By Guru9WBTD6

My first impression is that all trims of the imprezas are slow. I test drove the base models all the way up to the limited models. An impreza might not be such a good choice in a critical driving situ... Read More

The hatchback is a great car for a teenage driver. It has the roominess of a small SUV without the rollover risk, and all wheel drive is standard. Read More
