Hi ALL!
I'm looking into getting a GT Wagon to replace my 92 Loyale Wagon.
What year do they start?
What year cane I get the 2.2 Ltr, then when do they change to 2.5 ltr?
Is there a "good" year GT and a "bad" one??

Many thanks, SubeeTed

The last year of the 1st generation Legacy's (94) there was a Legacy GT wagon available. As for the second gen GT, they were available from 96-99. Basically all second gen Legacy GT's had the "bad" DOHC 2.5L engine. The 94 first gen legacy GT had the bulletproof EJ22 motor. Since 2000 the third gen GT's have all gone back to a SOHC 2.5L (phase 2) motor which is much better then the second gen DOHC 2.5L (phase 1) motor.

Basically:

94 GT wagons are very rare, but most affordable, if you don't mind the somewhat outdaded look.

96-99 GT wagons all have the crappy motor. (96 didn't get the nice multi spoke rims and hood scoop, 97-99 did)

2000+ GT wagons are great, if your willing to pay the price of a "newer" car.

Mark,
