Legacy spare tire question
Posted 21 July 2003 - 03:36 PM
So where is it? Edmunds says it has a space-saver spare. Isn't it supposed to be the same size as the others to keep the AWD system from screwing up? Or does it just have to be the same height? Eh?
Also, I might just hold out for an '05 wagon. Has anybody heard for sure if it'll get a turbo 2.5L and what kind out output it might have?

In the picture on Subaru's website it shows 4 compartments under the floor, and no spare in sight. Unless it's very thin and is under those compartments. I probably should've pointed out too that I was looking at the wagon.

I was looking at the Legacy wagon too, but I found that it was only 1 cubic foot bigger than the Forester. One cubic foot spread over the width of the car is probably an inch of two of length? Not that big of deal in my mind.
Price made my deci$ion:smokin:

My tray is deep enough that it holds a DIN size radio, so you could use that space for amps. Heat buildup might be a problem...

That's what I wanted to know. Thanks.
I could find a way around the heat buildup, it's removing the amps to get to the spare that bugs me. I suppose if the wires were long enough though, I could just lift it enough to get the spare out.
I'll just wait 'til they get here for the auto show and look at them then. Hopefully they'll be here. Houston is right after Detroit, and we don't get always get the new cars down here.
