1988 Subaru Justy from North America
Great little car!
Clutch needed replacing early.
Exhaust pipe fixed due to a recall (free).
Interior components very cheap and break easily.
Cloth seats torn and need seat covers because of the metal coils underneath.
Overall great little car, very peppy. I really have not taken great care of it, but it continues to run with no major problems.
Seats fold down and can really fit many items, I have moved five times with this car!
Beware of the thin roof and lightweight construction, could be very unsafe in an accident.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

This is so true, you should see the wreck I had in my Subaru Justy! I would love to post pictures of it!
Counterpoint to the rollover safety discussion going on here: I rolled my 1993 Subaru Justy and the car and occupants survived quite well. The car was equipped with a Yakima roof rack, which may have aided in structural rigidity of the roof... but the car survived well and was drive-able again after putting it back on it's wheels.
The body was changed in 1991; they made a wider and stronger body. Comparing a 1988 to 1993 in a crash test is not fair.
