Subaru Wrx — When I first bought it, the handling was a little underwhelming, especially compared to the power it makes. After a few good mods, like front and rear sway bars and end links, it handles quite well. It may not be as buttoned down as an Audi, but it is still a blast to drive. We also installed an aftermarket up pipe, and a manual boost controller. both working together to get rid of a little of the dreaded turbo lag.

Pros: Great power, fun to drive.

Cons: The suspesion shouldn't have required mods

04 Wrx — I have luved the Subaru World Rally Blue / Gold combo since Colin McRae first put Subaru on the rally map so when the dealership group I work for added Subaru, I jumped on an early production 04' model in that color combination! I have 40K on it now and no complaints at all! fun to drive, looks beautiful and somewhat unique on the road - thumbs up!

Pros: quik, fun, unique

Cons: slow below 3K, a little slow in the handleing dept

2004 Subaru Impreza Wrx (sedan) — Good acceleration, some turbo lag. Handles like it's on rails, especially with the anti-roll bars. Paint will scratch if you sneeze in its general direction. Interior is pretty plain, but the "sport" seats are nice. The stereo could be a lot better. Looks angry from the front end. Gas mileage is pretty low. Consider it a "fun tax".

Pros: Acceleration, handling, looks

Cons: Paint quality, stereo

Most Fun Vehicle I Have Ever Driven. — Dont let the feint of heart drive this car or they will end up hurting themselves. You have got to have respect for it or you will get in trouble really quickly.

Pros: 280 hp *stage 2 modifiactions(3.5" turbo back Aps race exhaust *no cats Cobb Stage 2 flash, Sti Sway bars, . 60 hp over stock. Nitto invo tires let you go up the clover leaf on ramps to highways at about 55 mph! Too much fun!  Clutch engagement is like butter.

Cons: 20-24 mg on the road with your foot in the turbo.  30mg if  you drive it easy. Too bad it's too much fun when your in the turbo..... ;-)

Perfect Commuter - Enough Push To Make Your Workday Slog A Bit More Fun — Its a fun car - even in the automatic tranny offering. The boxer feels "torquey" for a 4 banger and handles decently out of the box. The styling and aesthetic sensibilities are heavy on the "form follows function" school but gives the car its character - at least before the 08's arrived. In my humble opinion, the new styling looks more sleeker but lacks distinction.

Pros: Utilitarian approach to aesthetics before the 08's

Cons: Utilitarian approach to aesthetics before 08's

Porsche-like Performance With Room Enough For A Full Drumset... — I just bought this car a little while ago on cars.com and drove it 1600 miles back from Boston via Canada. Since then I've driven it around town in a variety of road conditions. As a drummer, sedans and sports cars are generally impractical for me so I had resigned myself to many years of no driving pleasure whatsoever... The WRX wagon is fantastic. 227 turbo-charged horsepower in an all-wheel drive hatchback yields impressive acceleration, and handling. The four-wheel disc brakes complete this empowering package of exquisite balance. This car has no competition whatsoever in its class and year range. Top it off with saving $3,000 off the Minneapolis prices by buying in Boston and you've got one hell of a satisfied buyer.

Pros: - 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds (only 0.5s slower than Porsche's Boxster S)
- Excellent handling and balance in stock configuration
- In-dash 6-disc changer
- Clear and warm-sounding speakers with plenty of bass without any EQ
- Enough cargo space for a full drumset
- Racing seats come stock!
- Rear-view mirror has built-in digital compass and auto-dimming feature!
- Great sleeper look (unassuming, yet aggressive)

Cons: - Only takes premium fuel
- Mileage is decent, but not great (20/27 EPA rated)
- Import brand is more expensive to repair than US brands
- Not quite low enough to the ground for my taste
- Side skirts not body color

Hauler — Fast, great handler, looks okay. Huge support from owners clubs. Gas mileage is terrible when driven hard, but moderate when driven smoothly. Great for mountain roads. Turbo gives you all the power you need. Never have to switch gears. Set the cruise control and forget it. Interior is relatively poor. Hard to believe the car cost 35k+ new. No arm rest, no auto a/c or air exchange. Paint and glass are weak. I already need a lot of touch-up and a new windshield.

Pros: Fast, AWD, super-reliable.  Bit of stealth.

Cons: Small-ish, interior.

A Grippy Weekend Rally Car With Space Enough To Fit An Entire Rock Band Worth Of Gear! —

There are many cars on the road today, and as more and more of todays young drivers switch from V8 muscle to japanese tuning we have a medley of cars to choose from. What ever it is your looking for, the new tuner lifestyle will suit you. From 40 mpg to 10 sec drag times its clear the 4 cylinder is here to stay. With gas prices soaring to new records this could be the end of combustion engines as we know it. But in the middle of all this is my pic for the best new age sports car, the Subaru Inprezia WRX. This little car is powered by a 227HP Turbo Charged and Intercooled 4 cylinder boxer engine. Stock the WRX is a real go getter and a very respectable car. Its quick, Tight turns, and just feels right in your hands. With the turn of the key the motor comes alive and its clear from the sound this is no regular 4 banger. The WRX is perfect for the weekend warrior looking for a car to get into Auto Cross yet still able to get back and forth to work with no fuss. My 2004 Java Black WRX wagon is just this car. Its roomy, Quick, Responsive, and everything i could ask for in a car. Check one out, you wont forget it.

Pros: *Power
*Room
*Respectable MPG
*Reliable

Cons: *has to have Premium Fuel (91 Octane minimum)
*With a heavy foot MPG can suffer
*Paint is awful, subaru has awful paint not just the WRX
*Pricey, and with gas prices may want to consider an alternative!
