1990 Subaru Legacy LX from North America
Very durable and long lived
Front wheel bearings.
4wd has started doing a weird jerky thing on sharp turns.
Very good acceleration, but lousy mpg for its size (25mpg highway).
Excellent winter traction - 4wd.
Motor uses almost no oil, even at 300k miles, although it's a bit loud.
Repairs are expensive compared to an American car - the wheel bearings cost about double, for example.
Spent $1500 in 2 years on it, but bought it for $10. If you see a well cared-for car like this with only 150-200k, it's probably a good deal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
