Well I test drove a 2008 Legacy GT 5 speed today. It felt pretty nice. I didn't have it in sport sharp mode until I noticed that and was no room on the test drive to stretch the legs out. Big difference I'd imagine? It felt quick but did feel a little sluggish in the mode I had it in when driving.

Anyways over all I really liked the car. Nice comfortable interior with the heated leather seats. Plenty of space and has rear seats which I have been since my S2000 does not have that obviously.

Is there anything in particular to look for? I looked for any oil leaks anywhere, body panels mis aligned, weird noises etc. I didn't hear much. It did sound like possibly a slight whir noise when on the highway but couldn't tell if they were the tires or something else.

It's a 2008 with 66k miles on it. 2 owner but always been serviced every 3-5k miles by a subaru dealership as per the carfax. No accidents or anything. Appears to have been completely stock but don't know for sure. Anything to check to see if any common parts were replaced or anything? The engine cover was not bolted down I noticed.

They are asking 15.5 for it from a chevy dealership.

From looking around the price seems pretty good. A bit more miles than I was hoping for though. Would you feel comfortable buying one with that high mileage?

I was nervous when I bought my S2000 with 65k miles. It now has 180K miles and been boosted at over 400whp since 125k miles so that has been insanely reliable even with adding boost and all.
