Yeah, not to beat them down, but despite being a GM owned dressed up Subaru, they are still considered exotic and Euro (and thus, I assume parts will cost Euro$, and mechanics will be relatively scarce) and with a sketchy future, I'm wary of putting money into one. As lame as most of the Subarus are (looks wise only, really) I feel a lot better buying one than something like that. I looked into it and if the Legacy's engine blows up, I should be able to get a JDM 2.5 NA replacement for under 1500, or a JDM 2.0t WRX-STi full package for ~4k. There's also the 2.0TT which apparently can be had (without trans) for ~1200 and is rated around 260HP. It seems like a decent deal for the long haul, esp. considering most of the engine swaps are a near-drop-in deal.
