1984 Subaru Wagon 1800 Sportswagon 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand
Little beast never stops!!!!!
When I got the car it was a farm car, so it was dirty inside and out.
Car needed a CV joint and a new clutch cable, sparkys and oil change, and the oil dipper. Recently the steering rack went, But they don't usually go I was told. The driver's side seat was ripped and little ones on the rest, so I got seat covers and that fixed the problem.
I had problems with the points, but that was fixed.
This car is a tank. It just keeps going and going and going. It pulls a trailer that is 1 tonne and pulls with no problem.
This car is old, but there's no rust at all and it nearly runs like new, and has done 330,000km and is still running like new
This car is a little beast. I have reved it really high sometimes to get the trailer up the hill, but it never overheats, but sometimes when just trying to get a car park when the car is warm it heats up, but I don't know if that's normal or not?
This car is unstoppable and if you find one in good nick, buy it. It's cheap on petrol and great on rego, and I tell ya, the 4wd mode works well, but it's an old car, but a great car indeed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have to agree.
I just bought my first Suby and I won't go back, nor will the car. For $800 AUD I bought a very clean unit; no rust, strong engine, can't fault anything. And off road; boy, does it fly! Cornering, acceleration, brakes, and steering; all a1+. I would buy another without hesitation.
