1999 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5 boxer from North America
Fun and reliable at a good price
There was a squeal from the brakes after 3 months of driving. Mysteriously, this went away on its own about a month later. The dealer had no explanation.
The overall performance level is very good, especially the all-wheel drive handling.
However, the car could still use another 25-30 hp (currently at 165).
Ride is exceptionally comfortable for a performance car. Road imperfections do not upset the car, even when driven hard.
Good seats, great visibility.
All in all, a pleasure to drive, a breeze to maintain.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
