Thumbs up Just test drove '02 GT sedan..

wow....






That pretty much sums it up. Sure, my TL-S has more power and is bigger and probably faster but frankly, I don't give a shi<b></b>t. Test drove a silver GT sedan. Im a small skinny guy so the smaller dimensions of the Legacy was a welcome change from the cavernous size of the TL-S. The salesguy told me to take a sharp angled turn at around 70-75km/h and I still can't believe that the car was able to follow the turn so well. My TL-S would have skidded at around 50-60.

I think I'm gonna be one of you pretty soon. Whether thats good or bad is another thing

Yup, they handle surprisingly well. I, along with other legacy owners, place in top spots at auto-X's. Plus they look sharp.

Yeah, my parents just took delivery of an 02 Silver GT sedan. I'm pretty impressed as well. The biggest improvement I've noticed is the brake pedal feel. It's not mushy like last generation legacies and the newer outbacks. Handling is very tight, and the steering is precise. After driving the 2002 GT, my 1995 Legacy just doesn't seem to be as fun as it used to be.

Actually im very impressed with the GT sedan. Like I said before I'm seriously considering a trade-in. Not that I don't like my TL-S but its just not a car for an 18yr old (insurance is just a tad too much for a freshman in college).

One of the things that I like about the GT is that there's not too many toys. I like how Subaru kept the GT dash and interior plain, simple but practical.

I went with a friend of mine to test drive some Legacys last week. I drove an LL Bean OB, and an Outback Sedan with an H6 then we drove a Legacy GT. All of them had autos There was no comparison though when it came to which one was quicker. I was very impressed with the smoothness and torque of the 6 cyl. It looks like he's going with an LLBean OB. I really wish they would put a manual with a 6 in a GT that would be so nice.

Hiroki,

Come visit us at www.toronto-subaru-club.com and get your car from our Sponsor dealer for very little above dealer cost.

Also, the Legacy GT's are quite fun and surprises many people at the autocross tracks.
