philbegas Posted August 15, 2017 Share Posted August 15, 2017 Hi guys, I'm going to be trying to get rid of my 06 GX470 with 185,000 miles, and buy a Legacy GT. I think the Spec B would be outside of my budget, but it seems like there's plenty of Legacy GTs that are in budget with around 150,000 miles. I'm definitely set on the 4th gen body style, and I want it to be a manual. However, I've been reading some of the threads about the turbo failure and I'm nervous. As a result, I'm here with a few questions. 1. Is it better to get a n/a? 2. Is there a way to get the turbo/engine inspected before purchase that would reassure me that it had been maintained properly? 3. Are there model years that are more or less reliable than others? Some additional information: 1. I already own a G35 stickshift, but I'm going to be living in Philly for at least 3 years, if not more, so AWD would be nice. Then, I can keep my G35 in good condition and avoid driving it on salted/treated roads. 2. I'm also considering Volvo AWD R-design cars, E30 325IX, K5 Bronco, Toyota pickups, Mazdaspeed 6.
