I am gutted, Since I got hold of my 7th Generation the wife has used it several times and really liked it As she is due to bin her VW Passat TDi Estate this year she was quite keen to have a play in a 8th Generation Tourer as she will only drive estate cars and is as cheesed off with unreliable German rubbish as I became. Now at this point I became quite excited as I am a BIG FAN of the 8th Generation Any way we had look at a few second hand late cars and she has driven a few now, BUT (hate that word!) she also decided she wanted to sample other cars more specifically the Legacy.... Now last weekend she had a loan 8th Generation from local dealer for a few hours and then borrowed a Legacy for couple of days, upshot was she fell for the Legacy (this was not part of my plan) having been given a ... well to be honest very good deal by our local Subaru dealer she has ordered one in gray with the toys she wanted... Now I am all in favor of freedom of choice but why not a 8th Generation. At this point I am a very sad man, I do like the Legacy and the package is superb from the dealer, unlike that being offered by our local Honda dealer who you would think didn't really want to sell her a car.. Why do some sales people, when a man and a woman together go looking at cars just ignore the woman? I don't get that, in our case she was the person buying the car not me.. Anyway I tried to talk her into a trip to Stoke to the very nice people at HH but to no avail as she said she would not cross the road to go back to Avondale in Northampton for the car to be serviced as she felt they were rude and ever so slightly chauvinistic. Nice one Avondale.. I feel utterly depressed by the whole thing however wife is happy and it could be worse she could have bought German and been driving about in an overpriced unreliable recycled bake bean can.. So Legacy on order, I am very unhappy as I wanted a nice new Gray tourer parked next to mine, Life can be so cruel !!
