Do Test Drive One, And You Will Want To Buy It Right There! Awesome Cars. — I have owned this car for almost 3 yrs now and I have upgraded most of the car in some form or another. Even as a stock RS, this car has been amazing from the start. I would diffenately recommend this car to anyone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The fact that its 4x4 and a sports car, it handles like a dream

Cons: The gas consumption sucks bad

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

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

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

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
