Are you serious? The previous generation Subaru Legacy (BL/BP) was so nice but the current generation sucks so hard. It's like Subaru is trying to make a Toyota Camry competitor. The Subaru Legacy was always the Japanese 3 series.

This is awesome now all it needs is more than 200hp and it might actually be a real special edition . Then I can stop laughing . It also needs to ditch the CVT . Great now t5his website is doing humor stories . I thought I was on a car website but I must be wrong .

Ahhhh...... a run-of-the mill mass production car, a Legacy with less than stellar HP and CVT, limited to 300 units? Am I missing something here? Hard to believe they will even sell THAT many. Pass.
