1989 Subaru GL 1.8 boxer from North America
A good first car for the price
The right front fender rotted off.
The whole drive-shaft assembly was destroyed when I crashed it, the car still runs without it in two wheel drive.
The entire undercarriage is rotten, the whole car was abused before I purchased it.
The car is roomy for a sub-compact Subaru.
The car has nothing in the power department, it takes quite some time to reach 55 miles per hour.
The interior is very comfortable with the exception of leg room.
I think the best part about the car is it's durability, I lost control of it going around a turn at around 40mph, and slammed into a ditch and landed at a 90 degree angle.
The car started right up after it was hauled out of the ditch and only was in need of a quart of oil.
The only thing that i do not like about this car is it's handling.
The only reason why I am driving this car is because my Firebird needs an engine, but I think I'll stick with the Subaru after my other car is fixed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
