Great small car


Only the service material. I haven't change anything else in over 13 years of ownership!

General Comments:

It's not very fast, but it is the most reliable car I have ever driven!

Very good fuel consumption (maximum 6 liters per 100 kilometers)

Cheap insurance.

Very good off-road (for a small car who isn't mend to be off-road)

I wouldn't know anything about safety of this car; it has never been crushed.

I've bought this car in 1990, when much loved 1988 Volkswagen Golf died on me (several times). Before Subaru, I have only owned German cars (they were all a piece of junk!. So I decided, to give Japanese a chance. At first, I was skeptic, but now I'm glad I did it. Subaru was cheaper than German cars and 100 times better. In near future, I will buy new Subaru. Those cars are worth every penny!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1991 4wd, Very fun, reliable and safe car. I hit a small moose (about 700lbs) with my Justy and the car has only one small dent from it. I bought two Justys and made one good car. I've put 3000 miles on the car with very little trouble (still working the bugs out), The odometer shows 80000, but it might have rolled over once. I average 28.5mpg, the gas tank only holds 9.2gal so it is not good for long trips. Overall it's a cheap, low maintenance car.
