Theres no replacement for cubic displacement. I personally will always own an AWD vehicle, because I prefer handling over straght line speed. I am currently selling my A4 and buying a subie.

Your looking at two totally different cars. The GTO's are an awesome car if you want that sick nasty sound along with the speed your going to get. Get the sti if your looking to goof around on dirt tracks or rally type drives. I took a GTO out before i got my Subbie and i really enjoyed it.

The big decision for me was gas prices and reliability of the car... Subbies take that over Pontiac anyday.

I agree totally agree. You cant go wrong with Japanese mechanics and durability. I had an 80's subie wagon in high school, and crashed it a few times and spun out on the freeway in a rain storm and drove it through a fence, and I drove away from everything each time. I put over 200k on a few toyotas, and now from Subie we get 300hp/tq and AWD out of the box for roughly $30k , seems like a no brainer to me. I will always have a special interest and love for american muscle, but it gets old. I like snow and dirt and mountain roads. To each there own. Cheers!

The host says the Subaru far out performs the GTO in every area except the drag strip, which it came in a mere .10 of second slower in the 1/4 mile.

I recently got to drive one of my best friends Z... I was not too impressed. The only GREAT thing I thought about it was the suspension. If you are going for a car that gets you attn, get the Z. I got lots of compliments while driving it (Orange). The GTO looks like a glorified 99 Grand Prix... yuck.. and Subie, well Subie FTW in all categories. What it lacks is easily fixable.

Yeah, not that any of you were doubting the capability of the Subie, but I thought I would share anyway. From the mouth of Edmunds, cant get much better info than that. If I wasnt sold before I am now.
