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 tend to buy new every few years as well, and am looking for a bit more upscale. I have owned 5 (currently own 2) Subarus; 01 2.5 Rs, 02 WRX, 05 FXT, 06 WRX TR, 10 STi.
I am not really interested in the Leggy, but if the new STi isnt a huge improvement then I will probably gothe BMW 1M way. Sad, but true. I wish you guys would at least release some information and or renderings...
