I've driven both first gen Legacy's GC8's and 2004 STi's, I can say that chassis engineering and stiffness has come a long way in those years. Which leads me to ask, how to RX owners feel about the rigidity of their cars? does the interior crackle on cold winter mornings?

It's better than my GL-10 wagon. the RX seems to be much lighter.

I can put the floor jack in front of the rear tire and the whole side will lift with the rear wheel about 5" off the ground. I can open and close both doors without any problem.

I know the history of this car. It's lead a pretty tame life.

That's soon to be over.:)

They seem to be pretty rigid...as my GL-10 is too. But the WRX and STi are way more stiffer, stock.
