Hmm, good argument there. I'll have to start working that angle with the wife. :lol:

Honestly even if you could find one, you probably don't want a Legacy GT wagon that is sub-$10k. Probably way more problems than you want at this point in your life that price point. A quick AutoTrader search puts most 2005 GT's (first MY of the turbo GT) at $14-15k minimum - and that is for a sedan. The legacy wagons are somewhat rare so they can command a premium. Have you considered an Outback (very similar to a Legacy wagon, just a little more ground clearance)?

You may have better luck with the Impreza/WRX platform at that price point as they have sold wagons since '02 ( I sold my 03 WRX a year ago for ~$8500). Plus the WRX's before 2006 have the 2.0L motors that don't have some of the problems as the 2.5L. If you want something a little different, try to find a 05-06 Saab 92-X as that is a WRX wagon in a Saab skin.

No matter what you end up buying, if you find a turbo Subie do your research and make sure that is has been maintained properly. These cars will treat you well if you treat them well, but if you buy a car that has been abused you can find yourself in a money pit very quickly. The non-turbo cars generally seem to have fewer issues than turbos. Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I'm not new to Subies. I've had an '04 STi, 01 RS and now a STi swapped/built '00 RS coupe. I'm pretty certain it's not going to work with a dog and a baby girl (barely works with a dog alone, lol). I have been looking at Impreza, Outback, Leggy GT, etc wagons, just not Foresters. I'm open to them all but Leggy's looks to have a lot more room than Impreza wagons in the cargo area. I'm not in a super huge rush either so I've been posting WTB ads here, nasioc, rs25, etc to see what's out there.

My wagon is great fun. If you have a kid on the way, though, mine's probably not going to be much fun. Unless your kid is like Enzo the dog.

An 05 GT wagon is pretty long in the tooth by now. It's going to need quite a bit of work to freshen up, unless it was already done. Even at that point, you're still buying a 9 year old turbo car.

An L model might be a better start, especially as most owners throw out all the old parts and replace them with "better" parts. You dont get the turbo, but you dont need it either...as you have 3 other hot rods. :-)

silver wagon for sale - contact the poster of this post - http://legacygt.com/forums/showpost....7&postcount=17

Tyrus3 03-29-2013 04:27 PM

I'm open to the L's. The GT's just look nicer and well, nicer is preferred to less nice, lol.

I only have the swapped RS now. I used to have an STi, sold it to buy a stock RS, sold it to buy a swapped RS. I guess I could sell it and buy an STi and end up where I was 7 years ago. :lol:

Totally OT, but that was such a good book!

Tyrus3 03-30-2013 08:11 AM

It was, walking my dog around Greenlake I met an Enzo. I wanted to ask but didn't.

e* back OT, ~2002-ish leggacy's, anything to note on them? I see a couple for sale locally. They're up there in mileage ~140ish.

Really good book, I just finished reading it last week.

Jerm 04-07-2013 11:34 AM

If you don't care about turbo, the 02-05 Impreza wagon or outback sports have plenty of cargo space and sell for under $8k pretty frequently. My girlfriends sister got a 04 wagon non-outback for $6.5k last year in great shape. Or you can buy my 02 WRX swapped GF....

Maybe not so much for a family cruiser though, lol.

I bought the spec miata that was raced by the guy who was the basis for Denny. And Garth Stein drove it as well. Good book.
