Speaking of towing with the WRX and STi in the '04 US-Impreza brochure, their wording seems inconsistent and confusing. For example:
• On the specs page, they do list 2000 pounds as the limit for both the WRX and STi, as Ghostrider mentioned. However...
• If you look at the accessory tow hitch picture, elsewhere in the brochure, it mentions (2000 pounds) for the WRX wagon
, and there's no mention of the WRX sedan or STi. This suggests to me you can tow with the WRX wagon, but not the WRX or STi sedan. You can certainly use the hitch receiver for a bike rack attachment.
• Also, you should be aware—that for any US-spec Subaru—you can't tow over 1000 pounds unless your trailer has trailer brakes. This info is somewhat obscure in the brochures, but it is definitely mentioned in the owners manual.
