My best car ever!


Rust on rear wheel arches, nothing else.

General Comments:

This car is extremely reliable, no failure at all within more than 140,000 km.

Just had to replace some normal wear components (clutch, brake pads).

Mechanical & electrical parts are working perfectly.

Will run this car as long as possible!

Up to now everything is OK with the car.

The only thing I really do not like is the steering: It needs very much strength. But on the other hand it makes it easier to control the car on windy back roads...

General Comments:

It has only 63hp, but is incredibly fast. On Swiss mountain roads you can really drive like mad with this go-kart-like Subie.

But be careful: If you go too fast in a curve, the car understeers heavily!

But it's really big fun to drive!

And when in December the first snow falls, I can only smile and press the 4WD button...
