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.

It happens all the time. We get excited about a really attractive Subaru concept, and then the production car comes out and, well, "disappointed" isn't a strong enough word. (Compare that hot Impreza concept to the final production car.) So while we're hopeful that this new Legacy concept previews something sleek for Subaru, allow us to be fully on record as not getting our hopes up.

Anyway, let's talk about how good this car looks. From the front, comparisons to the Buick Regal GS are warranted, but from all other angles, it has a very four-door coupe-like shape. The concept rides on 21-inch wheels with bulging wheel arches that Subaru says hints at the car's all-wheel-drive system (standard Subaru fare, BRZ aside).
As for what exactly this concept previews, the safe guess is, of course, the next-generation Legacy midsize sedan. And while we'll keep our fingers crossed for a sweet-looking production sedan to come out of Fuji Heavy in the near future, it's safe to say we're still skeptical.
The 2015 Subaru WRX STI and 2014 Porsche Cayman are both saddled with unfair reputations. The STI with its huge wing and gold wheels has the title of the ultimate boy-racer. On the other hand, Porsche brand snobs look down on he base Cayman as just a wannabe 911. In reality, they are both pretty fantastic performance cars. But what would happen if the two of them lined up at a stoplight, and maybe the guy in the suit in the Cayman started throwing some revs at the young man in the STI? Automobile decided to find out in a recent video pitting the two stereotyped hot rods against each other in a standing-mile drag race.

In terms of raw numbers, they are surprisingly close. Both use flat engines and six-speed manual transmissions here, but the Subaru has more power and torque. However, the Porsche makes up for it with 300 pounds less weight. Neither should have a problem with traction either thanks to the STI's sophisticated all-wheel-drive setup, and the Cayman's mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout.
The comparable specs certainly show themselves in the real world for the race. We're not going to give away the winner here because it's too exciting, but let's just say the finish is very, very close. Scroll down to watch both of them shrug off their stereotypes and show off their real performance.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a massive recall campaign today for some of the more popular Subaru models due to defective puddle lights that could short out and possibly lead to smoke and/or fire.
(*)While the recall notice lists a total of 633,842 Forester, Legacy, Outback and Tribeca models from various model years, Automotive News is reporting that there are only 53,999 units actually equipped with the defective lights, but Subaru is having to make the massive recall since it is unable identify which vehicles have the lights.
The problem with the 2009 through 2012 Forester, 2006 through 2012 Tribeca and the 2010 through 2011 Legacy and Outback is that the puddle lights mounted under the door mirrors can collect water or moisture, which can lead to the short. To fix the problem, Subaru is adding an extra fuse to the wiring harness as a part of the recall that will go into effect next month. For Forester owners, this is the second major recall in less than a year following the 275,000 units that were afflicted with faulty rear seatbelts.
