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.
I've had 14 Subarus in my life. My last one was the '05 Baja Turbo. Don't want boy racer anymore (why I went from '99 2.5RS to WRX wagon instead of sedan in '01) and nothing since '08 appeals to the grown-up sport in me... especially not the '10+ 'Camry looking' Legacies... which is why I have/love the G8 GT... an understated sedan with great balance, handling, and power. If it were AWD...
(Yesterday I found out that Dodge Chargers have a 5.7L AWD option... never knew that)
