Re: Saabaru

It is. I've seen a model of Saab at the dealer that was basically a rebadged Subaru, must be the same one. I actually recognized some of the interior parts, looked similar to the WRX I used to have. Look at the window sticker, it says made in Japan by Subaru.

Re: Saabaru

No ****? It really is a Subi? GM does not own Subaru though...so it must have been some deal. Like they had with Isuzu before they bought them...

Re: Saabaru

WRX won't pull a horse trailer. Truck will. I might get an STi one of these years though.

GM controlled Fuji Heavy Industry, parent company of Subaru, up until recently when they sold their stake to TOyota.

And then there's this asshole...

Getting an STi will definately wipe out the crazy idea of getting rid of the WRX, those are definately the greatest cars in existance (not counting exotics) right now.

I on the other hand would have dumped the horse trailer and horse(s) before getting rid of the car

Re: Saabaru

Well the g/f traded her Jeep Liberty in for a Cooper S. She used the Jeep to pull the trailer before. We really don't pull it that often. I've had some thoughts about trading the truck recently, but I was leaning more toward the GTO than an STi.

Re: Saabaru

I've been looking into a legacy station wagon instead of a form of Imprezza, thinking I'd rather get some cheesy car, especially since I still have my S10, and a motard then a nice car and no motard. Just curious if a legacy wagon could tow my little 4x8 utility trailer and 1 bike.

Re: Saabaru

MY WRX pulled a 5x8 with two bikes on it to NC and back with no problems at all. It's rated for 2000 lbs. I don't think the STi is towing rated at all, but a friend of mine has one and we hauled my trailer and two bikes (also to NC) and it did just fine. What I can't figure out is why the GTO is not rated for towing. You'd think a 400hp LS-2 and the chassis it's bolted to would be up to the task. According to the GTO manual, though, "it's not recommended for towing a trailer". Weird thing is the Holden Monaro (same damn car) is rated for 1600kg, or just over 3500lb.

The Legacy wagon is rated for 2700lb, so no problem.
