Why don`t they build them anymore?


I had a short-circuit with the alternator, but the problem was sort out.

And...that`s about all :)

General Comments:

It's an excellent car..I'm proud of it.

But I have one big problem... maybe someone of you could help me. I had a minor crash with the car and the frontal right signal-lamp was broken. My 1981 Subaru Leone is the only of it`s kind in the city I live in.. and probably in Romania too. So, I ask your help.. if you have a signal-lamp or maybe a headlight set with signal-lamps for sale, please contact me at


Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
