Other Subaru Impreza (2000 - 2005) models:

  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    A man who likes a quick car but also has dog-transportation needs!

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Well respected by all, and the wife LOVES driving it. Neighbours arent too keen on it being started up at 3 in the morning. However, you dont feel as much of a hooligan driving the estate, and theres less of a Chav stigma attached too it. I used too drive a 98 STI saloon and it was a horrible experince when your at the traffic lights! You also get less Impreza drivers flashing, waving, sticking thumbs up and trying to get off with you because you drive an Impreza! Which is nice, cos personally i think its strange and pretty sad!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes, but with leather seats and alacantra dash, cos the shine onto the window is horrible!

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Range Rover 4.6 HSE, LPG converted

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing gone wrong, although it seems to be a magnet for other peoples car doors! Sorry, clock doesnt work! NOTE- The shine off the dash onto the windscreen in the sun is ALMOST unbearable! 2- Fuel consumption is not the best 3- Main Subaru dealers are close to BMW standards on overpricing

    What's most practical about your car?

    Ability to handle like saloon Impreza and the fact that 2 Labradors can fit in the boot!
