    2004 Subaru Impreza Wrx — It's a fun little car with plenty of power; once you add an intake, exhaust and have it tuned professionally on a dyno. Stock the car comes with 225 HP to the crank but once tuned with just the mentioned modifications, I got 240 HP to the wheels which is more than a Porsche 930. As far as handling goes, the car is plagued with understeer and never really seems to be sure of itself. I'm sure if I added coilovers and upgraded the rest of the suspension, it would give me more confidence for my spirited driving style.

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

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: Aged styling and fuel economy

    04 Wrx Premium — Loved it and still love it ... during my time of ownership other than oil changes and tire rotations I never went back to the dealer for anything. This WRX was traded in on my new WRX which has features that were unavailable in 2004.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, Turbo = fun, Inexpensive in comparison to other brands

    Cons: Insurance rates

    The Subaru Wrx - Don't Buy It For The Brake Pedal Feel. — Quite mellow in stock form, much potential. Performance is good, fun in the corners. Build quality is quite good. I love the styling of the car. This car has kept me plenty happy for the past few years as both a daily driver (with low expectations) and as a weekend warrior.

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

    Pros: Potential. Huge aftermarket.

    Cons: Brake pedal is squishy as all heck.

    Pros: AWD is so much fun!!! car has TONS of power and so much fun to drive!

    A Great All Around Car, With Lots Of Diffrent Directions They Can Be Taken With Aftermarket Parts — An excellent all around car, with many many after market options for performance upgrades on the cheap, and the flexibility to be a rally crosser, autocrosser, road racer, or even just a nice daily driver, and the reliability to keep going no matter what you do with it.

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

    Pros: Handling, reliability, power, adaptability, support

    Cons: Comfort, insurance costs, profile,

    Wolf In Sheepscloth. — The 2004 Impreza WRX is not a particularly slow car with its 225 standard horses. The Prodrive Performance Package (PPP) version makes it a much more desirable car. I am completely hooked. Prodrive modified the engine management and exhaust, boosting the output to 270hp. It's not an STI of course, but in the wagon it is a must. I tested several second hand cars with very low kms on the clock but they all shared the same problem: they were badly treated by their first owner. In the end, I found a good example. I agreed to buy it on Wednesday before a long week-end. On Monday, the seller contacted me to tell me he changed his mind and wouldn't sell the car after all. All I could do is tell him he was absolutely 100% right. This is a brilliant car.

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

    Pros: Punch, character, power.

    Cons: Fuel consumption.

    Incredible. — When the go pedal is pushed and the external wastegate opens up, EVERYTHING disappears and tunnel vision begins at 4500 RPMS when the 18g hits 21 psi and I'm thrusted back into the seat. It's what makes a subaru, a subaru.

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

    Pros: Exhilirating, Gas-friendly, Obnoxious :)

    Cons: Can cause legal trouble (speeding, loud, flashy)

    Jeremy And Carla's Wrx — The launch is amazing. Tons of power in such a light car. Can't wait to tune it more..The handling on this car is superior. Corners like it is on rails even at high speeds. 0-60 time is amazing.

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

    Pros: Handling, Power, Launch

    Cons: Stock BOV.  Stock Turbo

    Bang For Ur Buck And Street Cred Fo' Shizzle — Top car with bags of grip and plenty of grunt. Not too thirsty but can outrun a cop car. Sounds great and goes even better. Crappy paint job tho and build quality is ordinary otherwise great all round turbo sedan.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: sounds and goes like nothing else for its price range

    Cons: if u wanna keep ur licence
