Picked up my Legacy GT wagon last week.
Looked at a lot of wagons, Passat, Audi
A4, Mazda 6. Volvo v50. Fodge Magnum.
Amazed at the way Subaru pulled this
car together. Staying with the GT not
the limited and manual, purchased the
car for 26,300. No other wagon near
this price range had the performance of
the GT. Passat had nice interior but
was over 31,000 with 4-wheel drive.
Same with the Audi and Volvo. The
Magnum looked better but interior did
not have same quality and with the Hemi
was also over 31K. Subaru was a better
handler although Mazda 6 was close and
the turbo was quicker than all. Nicely
done exterior and interior, car is
quiet but really comes alive on a
Plain but classy interior and exterior.
Good build quality. Subaru reliability.
Better stereo. Smoother shifter I have
the short throw shifter. Every
manufacturer should take apart the
shifter in my wife's RSX Type S and
learn how to make a shifter that feels
like its on ball bearings.
