I usually buy new every 2-3 years; we've owned an '02 WRX 5MT, an '04 STi, a '05 LGT 5MT, an '08 Tribeca and an '08 Spec.B. I intended to replace my '08 Spec.B with a new LGT, but test drives of a 2010 and a 2011 a year later convinced me to keep the Spec.B (which I still have).
The new LGTs felt like an Accord sedan with a sloppy shift mechanism and an interior designed for retirees. The significant steering wheel shimmy they both exhibited also didn't help.
I'm glad for Subaru's sake that some people did appreciate the changes and buy the 2010-2012 LGT, and hope that we'll have a similar model in future to complain about and perhaps buy.
