1994 Subaru Legacy GT 2.0 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
I will never own another one again!!!
Auto failure (No "D") at 92000km was replaced by the dealer. Took 6 weeks to do so though!
Water pump ($90) at 110000km followed by the radiator ($350) about 2 days later.
Melted No4 piston at 135000km (New long block $1500). Did the cambelt and all the idlers and tensioners ($400) at same time.
New steering rack ends at 137000km ($55).
New bottom rear bushes on front suspension arms ($125).
Now it appears that a wheel bearing is on its way out by the sound of it.
This car has cost me a lot of money over the last 2 years. I have save heaps by doing all the labour myself.
On the good side, it handles well and is reasonably quick. I still enjoy driving it.
The interior is well appointed, with everything within easy reach.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
