1988 Subaru Leone Review
Great Car Porbly Wont Get Rid Of It. — Fist off its a great 200 dollar car that only has 145k on it. After it sitting for 8 years I finally got it one the road the back cv shaft makes some noise and did have a tick, my guess was one the the mechanical lifters. Has a 5 speed with the dual range 4wd sedan. Love the car drove it around 500 miles or so. So far its making around 27 miles to to the gallon. Dont drive it very hard so that probably why. For having a whopping 88 horse power out of the factory and it probably losing some over time it still have very good get up in go. Im going to try to keep this car for a very long time i have herd that these cars are some tough cars. Hopefully this car proves it to me.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Great car all around. Just wont die
Cons: Little old makes some noises.

My Old Subaru
A very boring car. Bad acceleration, soft suspension and lot of noise inside the cupè. Low fun factor. Still, it`s a very solid car, and the maintenance costs are very low. Gas mileage are high for th... Read More
