You can built up the GT to WRX or maybe even STI status I think. This way you can avoid those outrageous insurance costs and still have a badass sleeper kind of car. Idk if this is true, but I think I heard this somewhere
haha, i feel like a post whore... so many posts in such a short span.
Keep in mind honestly, you will get schooled on repair costs on average youre going to spend double the labour hour rate for a subbie. They are good and reliable cars but be prepared to be raped when the times come. Most likely going to make the switch to 91 octane fuel aswell. Fuel use of a AWD is a tad worse than a 2wd car. If you live in a heavy snowfall area, a legacy might not have a good ground clearance for snow adventures, might be a snow plow.
I havent heard and specific BAD things about legacys. Most people who own them, love them. Get out there and test drive a few different cars.
thanks for the info dude. But idk if you saw my post or not, but i work at a repair shop, so im not really worried about anything breaking or anything like that. I get free labor on anything, so it makes the decision to buy a used car that much easier.
if it isnt a subaru dealership, youre going to have to bring it to the dealership for certain things. I work as a tech for a german company, and there is an entire room with 10ish fullsize cabs of dealer tools for jobs like timing belts, installing certain seals, airbag testing, etc etc.... you will need to visit dealer sometimes. Im sure for all the minor shit your shop can handle it, but somethings are very difficult without the proper tools.
yar, i know what you mean. What shop you work for? Im just saying some jobs simply DONT allow the job to be done without a certain dealership/snap on specific tool, thats all. I know techs can improvise tools for certain things, but other situations it is simply not possible. If youre lucky you will never have to visit the subbie dealership and i hope if you pick one up, all the best and hope all you have to do is the basics like oil/plugs/tires/brakes. Godspeed man.
Its a place called Clark Tire and Auto. Its based here in North Carolina and there are several branches across the state. But yea dude i appreciate all the info. I hope nothing major happens either. I have had pretty good luck with cars in the past.
