Hey all,

I've been seriously looking at the new Legacy, but one thing I've read has been bothering me. Several sources have mentioned that the 2.5i powertrain is "underpowered." I have yet to test drive the car myself, but can anyone speak to this? I am especially interested in what those of you with the 6spd MT think. With the exception of one car, all of the others I've ever owned have been a MT and it's just one of those things that I don't wanna part with. Unfortunately, that rules out the 3.6R and I'm not sure i can justify the 2.5GT.

I currently drive an '09 Accord coupe, 2.4L, 5spd MT. For what it is, it's pretty quick, making 190HP. I'm afraid that the move to the Legacy would be a step down.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
