Performance- air intake makes it sound much nicer above 3,000 rpm, soon a catback exhaust Build Quality- lots of rattles n squeaks (annoying) once you get a few fixed more come up Appearance- stock but looks good, hoping to lower it in the future 2" Fun factor- pretty fun car to drive, takes turns well and has some get up and go to it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sounds good, fun to drive, handles well, awd is nice comes in handy in winter, and not a bad looking car either

Cons: rattles and squeks alot, becomes annoying

If The Walls On The Tire Had A Lower Profile It Would Be Amazing To Drive, For Now Its Just Awsome — The 2.5RS has ok acceleration, braking is great but the back end is a little too light so watch out when breaking really hard in a corner cuz the back end will slide out really easy when the road is wet. Other then that its a fun car to drive.

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

Pros: Fun to drive

Cons: Tires need to be low profile for the way i drive and the rear end of the car could be a little heavier and the power should be almost equal to all tires just a little more power to the rear tires instead of the front.

It's An Awesome Car. If You Want A New One Just Drop A New Engine. — i have a 2005 sports package and i love the car. it hasn't failed me and it still kicks. it has 130,000 miles.... no joke. It picks up fast i wish there were more upgrades for it and it was a DOHC. Other than that it's kept up with a lot of 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder cars. i love it!!!

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

Pros: it gets good mileage, it's fast, it looks better than the ones now they look like a ford i don't like them.

Cons: not enough upgrades. and an SOHC

Fun To Drive — fast but quiet, with a cold air intake, and an exhaust this car would be better, stock intake chokes out the motor, feels like it needs to be able to breath better, over all good car, very responsive, all around fun to drive

Pros: fast, exelent handling/braking/acceleration

Cons: Slow through lower rpms

..... No Problems — My Impreza is an 05' 2.5 RS sport, it has 32000 miles on it and has an automatic car starter. I just bought it this weekend and it is amazingly fun to drive! I would reccomend this car to anyone.. I would reccomend any subaru to anyone but I would prefer an Impreza.

Pros: it's four-wheel drive, it gets good gas mileage, its affordable

Cons: It's kind of small

Awesome Car — Living in a country where we get a lot of snow, an AWD is not luxury. Subaru makes the best AWD vehicules there are, and this impreza 2.5rs gives me everything I want, security, economical, and fun to drive... At the moment there's no other car I would want over this one

Pros: AWD, economical, good mechanic

Cons: Four doors but not a lot of space for people behind

Ghislain Impreza 2.5rs 2005 — The engine is really good got a great torch.I like the all wheels drive during winter or on sand to drift a bit.The sound systeme suck so I change it complete I found the brake a bit loose don't have an off grip and they came hot real fast.It cost a bit higher than other car on gaz but its a 4x4 but you will enjoy whan you take some tight curves

Pros: 4x4

Cons: poor brake

Slow But Good Handle. A Solid Rugged Car. — The interior is nice. The race seats give it a sporty appearance, but rest is kinda dull. The exterior looks nice. From rear end looks like a wrx, but unfortunately its lacking the turbo and hood scoop lol.

Pros: its a subaru

Cons: its slow

A Daily Driver With Muscle. — This is my first car, and I absolutely love it. It comes out of the box with better performance than your general econobox. However, if you wish to make it peppier, the options for aftermarket parts are definitely there. Perhaps it's main pro is that for a under 20k car it comes with AWD, which is a great heltp in winter time if you live in Chicago like me. It's decently fast, and it can turn pretty well too. It's definitely above average if hyou're looking at a commuter car. All that and you can use 87 octane as well. So it's super cost-effective. Gas mileage is 22 MPG Street and 28 MPG Highway. While not great it is abvoe average. For the power you get, it's great. Like any street-car it has plenty of low end grunt. It has enough to get you past thae car ahead of you on a lane merge. For the tuner, it presents a challenging project, as power does not come easily to the 2.5RS like it does for the beefier brothers, the WRX and the WRX STi.

Pros: Cheap to buy and maintain.
Fun to play with.
Clean and quick.
Great Daily Driver
Can go fast, but can also drive your granny to the grocery store.
Snow has nothing on this car.
Performance is more than enough for those who want a commuter car.
IMO Best looking of all the bunch.

Cons: Lacks the grunt of it's older brothers
Performance-only minded drivers may find more enjoyment in other cars for the same price. Such as the Civic Si series.
Weak Alternator - in laymen's terms, the electrical output is lower than average.
Looks funky without a spoiler.
