1985 Subaru Leone GF 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand
Alternator fault that overcharged battery until it exploded.
Drivers window bracket regularly breaks.
Pulley for Oil pump jammed making cam belt skip - very messy.
Strange vibration in exhaust around 2000 rpm.
CVs starting to get noisy.
Engine blows smoke around 5000 rpm under extreme acceleration.
Car is quite quick for what it is.
Station Wagon is extremely useful and remarkably spacious.
4WD is fantastic!
Car is in remarkable shape considering it is heading towards 300000 kms!
Tall passengers have no leg-room.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
