Default What the hack can I do with a Justy?

Hey, I'm screwed. I can't find an Impreza L anywhere, so I'm gonna get a "temporary" ride until I can.

I found this justy for 700 obo and it's an automatic. It's a 91 with 120k on the car. I think most of it was while it was gettin towed behind a motorhome. It's AWD too.

It's a freaking puny 1.3 L 3-cyl, you know... does the automatic really make it slow? how fast can I go with it? I HAVE to rallyX it. I mean, that's part of my life. yes.

I'm gonna be driving to seattle for a few weeks/months probably so i think an auto might be a good idea, even though it's against my philosophy/religion.

Anyway, it needs a new windshield too, so I'm thinking I can have it tip-top for around a grand. Is it worth it?

Is ANYTHING worth it? ...Dengit.

Advice from wiser folks requested... i'm young and semi-dumb.

=brett=

PS: sorry, I double-posted this in the naturally aspirated Tech forum... i thought it would do better here.

As cute as they sound, I've heard its difficult to get parts for the Justy.
Seems like the Automatic would make it a dog.

See if you can get it for $450.

There were two 1993 Justy's running in the Rally of the Tall Pines this year. Both from Quebec I think. Maybe you can contact them to see what they've done to their cars.

It was TOWED behind the motorhome in such a fashion as to rack up mileage AND its awd?

So whats the story here? Is it an open center diff, and does that make it ok to tow?

Or did they do the old FWD fuse trick found on some older subie's?

actually, there's no awd justy for 91. it's fwd, and 4wd when you engage it.

it's pretty fun actually. the car handles like a gokart when it's in 4wd.

watch out for the ECVT auto trans, they were pretty problematic and expensive to replace.

if you found a good one they ran like hell...

the trusty justy

Manual trans Justys aren't really bad cars... they're cheap reliable transportation. Parts are hard to get regardless what year Justy but, stay away from ECVT auto. Wish you luck with your's, like you said, it's still a Subaru

There was no Justy auto with a geared transmission, only the ECVT, which as was mentioned, was VERY problematic. STAY AWAY!

But if you get a manual, consider it a good buy. Those cars are so tough it isn't funny. Some people had their hearts set on doing whatever possible to break the car and simply can't do it
