    Practical Performance Car - Great In The Snow!! — Has practicality & performance covered, SL pack adds a touch of luxury with heated leather & sunroof ... trim & stereo could be improved. Overall, very easy to drive quickly, and 4-wheel drive superb in the british winter weather. Prodrive performance pack gives it extra poke!

    Pros: Powerful & Practical. More understated than saloon

    Cons: Stereo & interior trim. Jockeys in chavmobiles try to race!

    It's Like A Bike With 4 Wheels — Before I got this car I was not very impressed with cars because I rode bikes. I must say that every time I got in the car everything felt better, the sound is awesome, the car handles really well, even the small turning circle doesn't bother me. When you drop the clutch and the car doesn't even spin, it just goes forward you'll know what I mean with the summary.

    Pros: Great driving experience, Comfortable seats, reliable, value for money.

    Cons: Fuel consumption is horrible if the boost gauge goes over 0 kpa... which is almost all the time ;-)

    Boring To Drive — They have lost the rawness that the classic Imprezas used to have, too easy to drive and lots of understeer.

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Boring

    *love It! — AWD grips the road great. Seats fit like a glove. MOMO stock steering wheel. Turbo. 6 CD in-dash changer.

    Pros: AWD, Turbo,

    Cons: Like any import..trying to do anything with wires is difficult because everything is so compact. Once you get used to it, it's not a big deal.

    Supa Fast Awd Pocket Rocket! — Loved the car the minute i test drove her! Have since made 100 + BHp gain and spent almost $10k on her...totally worth it! Not that she was insufficient in any way stock...i just craved more.

    Pros: AWD, good gas mileage, good cornering, fantastic boost, affordable, myriad of parts available to upgrade, loving subaru owner family!

    Cons: with the exhaust roaring and visible upgrades, she's a cop magnet!

    My First Subaru, And The Car That Got Me Hooked. — I bought my 2004 WRX brand new, and fell in love during the test drive! For the person wanting a little pep, but basically not a "full on race car", this is the car for you! This car handles great, and it a very good representative the the Impreza line.

    Pros: AWD, 227 hp/217 ft lb torque, handles great, very stylish

    Cons: Many have had problems with the tranny in the 2004 models....typically losing synchro in the higher gears.  I experienced this first hand when I lost the synchro from 3rd to 4th gear.  This is a problem ONLY with the 2004 5-speed trannies.

    Great Car — Ate tires up but other than that it was pretty good. I don't really have any other complaints other than the so so gas mileage but it's a turbo charged car and if you use the turbo, your gas mileage drops.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Economical, handles great on and off road. Very reliable......never broke down or had to be towed in the 6 years I owned it.

    Cons: Gas mileage is so, so. Chewed through tires every 20k.

    Solid First Sports Car. Out Of The Box Fun. A Great Patform To Modify. —

    This year was an overall step up for the model; every little bit was a little bit better. the seats are decently bolstered, the gauge cluster puts the tach in the middle, and the pedal set is nicely spaced for heel toe downshifting and with aluminum covers. the exterior looks are, let's face it, hit or miss. you will either love the seasoned boxer front end, or hate the broken nose styling. the stock suspension wasn't overwhelmed by the small 2.0 liter block, and with a stage 2 setup under the hood, this car can easily keep up with a stock STi. watch out, though, if that STi is tuned in any way. in a straight line, there are car lengths between them. with that said, i've installed strut tower braces, swift sport mach springs, 17x8" rims with uprated rubber. Potenza RE-01R, and then RE-11, are light years ahead of the stock RE-92 tires. keep your stock rims, though, for some dedicated snow tires. if you can only change one thing: TIRES! otherwise the STi will keep you jealously coveting the rock solid grip of the RE-070 but be ware of wet weather slip and slide. don't drive like an ***hole, and you'll be fine.

    Pros: Do you need to drive daily, through the twisties? it's more comfortable than an EVO.

    Cons: plastic panels squeake, seatbelt whines. rip that out and race it.
