Cons: Automatic HVAC system
Advice: You must test drive this fantastic machine!This is one amazing machine! The combination of a torquey boxer engine and turbo give it amazingly civilized low-end performance for normal driving... but when that turbo kicks in -- watch out! Tubo lag is almost non-existent. This is the smoothest, most forgiving manual transmission I have ever used! Fit and finish is outstanding and the doors give a hugely satisfying 'thump' when you close them. I had a '99 BMW 323 and I like this Subaru more! The performance/features/quality/price ratio simply can't be beat. Get one now!!
Cons: Daytime running lights........which I have already taken care of!!!!
Advice: Compare LGT's standard features with any other model, and it's price. Then drive it.Awesome!!! Not a car on the market with the same bells and whistles for the same price. Add AWD, dual climate control, heated front seats, 6 disc changer, turn signals on mirrors, upgraded security system, fog lights, and a turbo to any other car in its class and you are well over $30,000. You can't ask for much more.
Pros: the power
Cons: no xm radio
Advice: must test driveLove this car! Great power and great looks. Very fun to drive. If you are looking to get into a BMW 330 or Audi A4. Make sure you test drive the Legacy GT Limited Sedan first.
Pros: The engine
Cons: Climate control
Advice: Buy it! quick!This is a great car. Great performance, handling, and I can still haul my family of 5 around comfortably. Love the 17' wheels and big brakes. I went with the 5 speed auto which is fun in sport mode and works well in D. Aftermarket parts available already to easily make 310HP. Complaints: 1. Leather seats are too hard. Maybe they will soften up. 2. Climate control is retarded. My suburban works much better. If it is 55 outside and 60 inside and I turn the auto on to 75 it will turn the A/C on. It will turn the A/C on anything less than 83. When I turn the A/C off the Auto display goes out making you think the auto is off, but I found that it is not. Only if you change the fan speed does it turn the Auto off. The venting is retarded too. Never where it should blow. 3. Exhaust is way too quiet. Can't wait for aftermarket exhaust.
