I've had my 89 Subaru XT GL since 1991
and I like a lot. I was rock solid
reliable till it hit about 65K.
Several problems since then till now,
at 87K. Cracked intake manifold,
muffler replaced couple of times,
brake are naturally weak and I've had
to have then done twice. Clutch went
at 20K but replaced under warranty and
not problems since then. Parts
Italian supercar looking exterior,
fighter plane cockpit interior/dash,
low to ground but allows for high
seating position, solidly built with
heavy steel, fun to sling around.
Better long term reliability, better
pick up, wider parts availability.
