2000 Subaru Impreza Rs Coupe 2-door 2.5l on 2040-cars
San Bernardino, California, United States
|BEAUTIFUL 2000 Impreza RS Coupe! This car has been my pride and joy for almost a decade. I've taken extraordinarily good care of it and maintained it meticulously. It's gotten new synthetic oil (Royal Purple or occasionally Castrol Syntec) and a new Subaru factory filter every 3000 miles. I just had the timing belt and water pump changed. It has a new transmission, new clutch, fork, pressure plate and flywheel, new AC compressor, new cruise control unit, new radiator and thermostats, new air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires and a new battery. I upgraded the front seats with (more comfortable, more stylish) ones from a WRX. I also put in an in-dash CD changer from a WRX. This car has never been raced or abused.
The body is in great shape for a car that's 14 years old, and has only fairly minor issues here and there. The front bumper has the usual tiny chips from garbage on the freeway. The rear bumper has a scrape on the left rear corner from where some wanker brushing it with his car. There are a few chips on the right side rear bumper and a few other miscellaneous dings here and there. The biggest issue with the body is that the clearcoat is blotchy on the spoiler. The paint is great, but the clearcoat needs to be re-applied. Overall, this thing is GORGEOUS! Please note that it needs new tires.

Crash-testing new vehicles to evaluate their ability to keep humans safe in accidents is nothing new, but thus far there has been little in the way of crash testing for dogs. Subaru, a company that portrays itself as pet friendly, hopes to raise awareness on the issue of pet safety by funding initial crash testing by the nonprofit Center for Pet Safety, Automotive News reports.

Real dogs were not used in the crash tests; three dummy dogs representing a 25-pound terrier, a 45-pound border collie and a 75-pound golden retriever were used. There are a variety of devices for sale that are supposed to restrain dogs from entering the front-seat area and distracting the driver - tethers, cages, nets and crates - but their effectiveness in a crash is unknown.
In Subaru's crash test, performed at a Virginia laboratory that tests child seats on a device that speeds down a track and stops abruptly, the results show that devices such as dog tethers are prone to break in a crash, sending the dog rocketing into whatever is in front of it. Rather alarmingly, the organization reports a 100-percent failure rate. In other words, "None of the harnesses were deemed safe enough to protect both the dog and the humans in the event of an accident." Yikes.
The debuts of the 2015 Subaru WRX and the Legacy Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week are kind of hogging the Subaru spotlight, making it easy to forget that there is a more potent, more aggressive version of the small sedan waiting in the wings. And based on a rumor from Australia, we'll see the sportier WRX STI at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

The report comes from Motoring in Australia, which claims that a more potent version of the WRX will make its debut in the Motor City, and that it will do so with an even 300 horsepower (five fewer than the current STI) and 290 pound-feet of torque (identical to the current car). Aside from the more potent 2.5-liter turbocharged flat four, the STI should boast the regular spread of aesthetic upgrades and suspension, brake, chassis and transmission tweaks.
The standard all-wheel-drive WRX will sprint to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds.
Sources in Australia are reporting that we'll be seeing a small, rear-drive sedan from Toyota, based on the GT 86/Scion FR-S. Yes, a convertible variant is still in limbo, but a four-door sedan is in the works. It's unclear if the rumored GT 86 sedan would spawn Scion and Subaru variants (it's hard to cross all ten fingers while you type, but we're having a go).
Working with remarks made by the car's chief engineer Tetsuya Tada in his blog and a rendering from Japanese magazine Holiday Auto, the Australian site Motoring is claiming that the new model's wheelbase will grow about four inches over the current GT 86's 101.2-inch wheelbase.
Besides the larger overall space between the axles, the sedan will offer a more potent engine option over the current 2.0-liter, flat-four. Promising 268 horsepower, which is a big jump over the current car's 200 ponies, the new powertrain will be derived from the Hybrid R setup, shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. If, like us, you're reaching for the salt, and we don't blame you.
