I had all but decided that I wanted to get a new Subaru Legacy when I come home to America, but after actually sitting in one and checking it out...I must say that getting back into my Audi was almost a relief. Many car rags have praised its interior for its solidity and quality, comparing it to a Passat. I couldn't come to this conclusion. I recently sat and rode in a new Pontiac GTO. This car is being hailed as the "big thing" at GM. It "oozes quality" and has a "top-notch" interior. This is not so. Plastics abound...the headliner feels like fuzzy carpet glued onto cardboard. The dash has a hollow sound when you knock your fingertips on it. Sure, there were no squeaks and rattles, but the car is brand-new. Granted it is leaps and bounds ahead of typical GM quality, but judging from many Australian OTers' diagnoses of the Holden Monaro, it's only a matter of time before they start falling apart. The thing is...I don't WANT to own a European car in America. I know the costs and find them outrageous...but I'm starting to realize that it really is worth it.
