1990 Subaru Justy GL II 4WD from UK and Ireland - Comments

I had purchased a 1992 Subaru Justy GL as my first car. I have owned the car for about 6 months now, I haven't had any problems with the car, other than a few repairs that were a result of driving like an idiot at ridiculous speeds in low traction environments. Here in Canada, the tires are a very odd size and to find a replacement you have to special order one. When special ordering the tires, you can expect to pay 100$CDN+ per tire. Luckily I only had a slashed sidewall and only had to replace one. I suggest switching to a more standard size 13" when replacing all four tires. The car gets amazing fuel economy, the guy at the gas station laughs at me when I fill half the tank for only $6.50CDN. So, as long as you don't hit a curb going 80km/h sideways than the car is great. Soon I'm installing a t25 turbo and intercooler from a '97 Eclipse, I'm expecting huge hp gains.

Bottom Line... Amazing car for the price.

1990 4-Dr GL 5-spd JUSTY - Bought it new and it now has 171,000 miles and going strong. Had a valve job at 163K 'cause the guys at the shop weren't adjusting them like they should. Never see these cars in Maryland anymore. Everyone makes fun of me when I have to buy tires... only one brand fits.

Why the UK insurance companies charge so much money for such a small car? How do they tell you in which group your car fits? The group depends on what? Price of the car? Power?

To the reviewer with the turbo from an eclipse, you install that turbo, I expect huge explosions!!

To the insurance comment. Is that only in the UK though? What about in Ontario Canada. I saw one for 600 bucks. Rust and needs some front brake pads but that's it. As 16 year old I need something cheap and reliable, and AWD would be nice.
