My money pit
By jasonc314 on
Vehicle1996 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD
Reviewbought my subaru with 96,000 miles. it
got to 98000 and the valve guides
pushed throught the heads(or something
like that). Seeing these are boxer
motors, both heads went, a week apart.
Cost 1200 for a new motor with 40k
miles. Dealer wanted 1800 to fix heads
(475 a head + labor). Got that fixed,
cv joints blew. Car is a money pit
seeing i only put on 10000 miles!
Mechanic said the seller didnt rig the
motor, but it was a manufacturing
problem by fuji heavy industries. I
will never ever buy another subaru.
They also suck in snow, i dont care
what anyone says.
Best FeaturesNice riding car, not "so great" on gas, and it only has 2.2 litre due to the AWD
Worst FeaturesI suggest making replacement parts cheaper and allowing other companies to make certain parts. Car manufacturing comp. know exactly what parts will go at what time and make certain things dealer parts only which sucks for us, the consumer.
