dutchie3 Posted April 1, 2006 Share Posted April 1, 2006 Hi all, First of all, I think this board is great. What would we do these days without these things, I don't know. Anyway, I've been lurking on this board for a few weeks. I have narrowed down my car search to 3 cars, the legacyGT being at the top after I drove one. The other cars on my list are the Lexus IS300, and the acura TSX. I am buying used and hope to have this car for a good 8 years. I put around 12,000 kms on a car a year. My question is, how does the powertrain, particularly the 2.5 in the legacy GT hold up over the long run? I am looking for a car that will last me a few years like I mentioned, without significant repairs (my last car was a ford contour SVT, a fun car, but a moneypit). Both the lexus and the acura have very good long term reliability reviews, especially the lexus with the bullitproof inline 6. The main reason I would go for the legacy over the others is the power increase and the awd (which I could live without). But I don't want to sacrifice long term reliability. Can anyone comment on this...I've been doing a bit of reading on the subaru, but I wouldn't mind hearing your opinions. Thanks, Richard Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
