Cheap, reliable, fun car to drive and drive
It was a pile when it was given to me, by my brother in-law, for work done on a Honda Accord. Instead of money!?!
Bad tires, rear window broken, new plugs and wires, it runs like a top.
So I spent $125 and put new tires on it with a big screwdriver in my garage, figured it would eat them.
I set out to kill this car, drove it everywhere; pastures, corn fields during harvest, muddy minimum maintenance roads (wish it was 4WD).
My wife totaled it while I was out of town (not her fault; the insurance company told me it was total anyway. We agreed over the phone $1000 and I kept the car).
Three sheet metal screws, 1 new tire and a little solder on the radiator. IT'S ALIVE! Best car I've ever owned!
Just bought an '89 with the ECVT automatic trans, for $200, on the way home. We got noticed. This man had a 92 with a bad engine (don't believe it); $100 and I still have to go get it.
Do the math, I have less in all 3 cars than the insurance claim.
Anyone know how to become a Subaru dealer (I'm serious)?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
