Hi, I'm new on this forum. I was just wondering what are the main differences between the coupe and sedan version of the 2.5rs besides the obvious extra doors. For example, stability, handling, difference in extra weight, difference in size of the car, or dimensions, popularity and thus price, etc.. stuff like that

also, i heard something about a recall of all 2.5rs due to head gasket problems, is this true? could someone explain the head gasket problem and the logistics of the recall. what happens if it wasn't done thanks

The sedans and coupes are virtually identical besides the doors.

Pretty much all older subarus have head gasket problems. They pretty much just go eventually causing oil and coolant to mix. If the car has pretty high miles you might want to get that looked at.

My Impreza and my Legacy both have 140,000+ miles on them and they are still on the orignial head haskets.....so it doesnt mean that when you hit 100,000 they are crap
