Cheap to buy and run, but a pain for parts
He rocker wear i.e the rubber around the head gasket is worn off. Therefore oil is leaking from engine.
The CV joint on the left is gone.
The car is comfortable, economical and reliable. However, all these faults have proved very hard to repair as parts are hard to get and if available, cost more than what I paid for the car! The car is now parked as the CV joint is badly worn. Apparently there are two different sorts of CV joints under the Subaru Vivio 1993, but my one is the rare one! Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
