i was in the market for a fun to drive sedan. i poured over online reviews, Consumer Reports and generally obsessed over this for about a year.
I test drove new BMW 325, Civic Si, Legacy GT, Saab 93, Infinity G, Mazda Speed3, Mitsu Lancer etc...just about everything.
At the local Subie dealership they had a preowned 2008 GT. It was love at first drive. So i did a bunch of research and bought it --$20K with 30K miles.
I thought it was a great deal...0 buyers remorse.
Every time I drive this car I absolutely looooove it...it handles great...is super fast in S# mode, and a dream in the rain. i love the 3 engine modes -- I, S and S#.
Subaru certified it - got 100k bumper to bumper for $800.
3 driving modes I, S and S#
hate the fake wood trim inside ...ugh.
better stereo , although it's fine
