A Subaru Legacy put your Jeep to shame

I struggled with which forum to post this in and what title to give it. Ultimately, I think the Subaru Legacy just put a lot of Jeeps to shame...And as a Subaru Legacy owner, I take a little pride in it. I think my ride with 3 LSDs and a turbo is somewhat better suited from a drivetrain point of view than that Legacy, with a 3.6 L H6 and open front and rear differentials. Then again even a performance clutch in a manual transmission would be gone after the whole experience.

Subarus the new hipster vehicle. Volvos got to expensive so they moved their Starbucks coffee cups and iPhones over.

Is it true Subaru owners get a color matched benie on custom orders?

Re: A Subaru Legacy put your Jeep to shame

Dude, hate to tell you, but you can probably do all this on a little Fiat Panda


And a old Russian Moskvich with rwd and 50hp engine will make circles around the Subaru


You can do a lot of crazy stuff with any vehicle. There are a lot of "wanna be's" out there.....

At 7:30 on the video...I want to see the Subaru go up that hill. I would also like to see the Outback follow the Cherokee in the second video. I will say the Subaru is impressive I had an '13 Outback....and I was impressed with it at times in the snow.

Re: A Subaru Legacy put your Jeep to shame

IMO Subarus have always been among the ugliest cars on the road. If it can drive over a rock like a Jeep makes no difference to me.
