tuRBo4x4 Posted December 24, 2006 Share Posted December 24, 2006 Ive really been waivering back and forth between these two cars, i like them both about equally but was sort of leaning toward the wagon because i thought it would have alot of space. Wow, was i wrong, there is almost no leg room in the back of the wagon for rear passengers. my girlfriend was back there and she barely fit at 5'1 with my seat in my regular driving position (im 6'1). the steering feel was pretty good, way better than my crossfire, it was definately fast and the interior was nicer than past years. the thing was, you couldnt really feel the power. i don't know what it was, but there wasn't any real punch, but i would look down and be at 60mph out of nowhere. the guy let me dump the clutch at 5k and take it up to 85 on a long stetch of road over here by irwindale. its about a mile long road, the guy says "look, a runway, punch it." anyway, the wagon sorta sucked and left me feeling really dissapointed. So i work my way over to the leggy gt, really boreing looking outside and all that and my girlfriend was pretty "ehh, i don't know abou this car". So i take out the 5 speed, and as soon as i got in, DAMN that interior was so sexy, high quality materials. To tell you the truth i can't beleive they even sell wrx's in the numbers they do considered the leg gt was only 5k more. then i drive and jeebus, it pulled like a fu$%in freight train:icon_mrgr. as soon as it hit about 2700 rpm it just pinned my head to the seat. the guy who i test drove with had never taken one out before and he said "im going to have to drive this around when you guys leave" because he was as shocked as me. the only thing that sucked about the car was the shifter. why is the shift knob attached to a yardstick? thats the longest shift throw i have ever experienced. other than that, the car was amazing, i loved it, im going to buy it when my lease is up, etc. the leg gt i test drove had 200 miles on it and the wrx had 3, so maybe that explains the power differential, but the leg gt felt soooo much quicker and had way less body roll. legacy gt ftmfw:D Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
