My son gave me his 1993 Subaru Legacy because it would not always start in the cold weather. He had taken it off the road for several years and all I did was put a battery in it and it started right up. It did burn out the fusible link every time I tried to jump start it, and I had to make my own to replace it as no one had one. I still occasionally have a problem starting it in the winter and for no apparent reason, thus the low reliability rating, but it is a fun little car to drive and I like it a lot.
I like its initial acceleration, it shifts smoothly, steers like a sports car and it comfortable.
I realize that it is not a new car by any means, but I am starting to have trouble with the door locks.
