1.8DL Legacy Wagon 2WD
| ||Model||1.8DL Legacy Wagon 2WD|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Total lack of creature comforts.|
| ||General comments?||I bought this car when it had done 298,000km for a very low price at the time and I was expecting to have to replace the engine. It has now done over 370,000km. Everything on the car is the original part including the engine. The only engine work I have had done is replace a slightly leaking water pump. It has only broken down once with a blocked carburettor which can happen to any car.The engine doesn't use any oil (less than 1 litre in 12,500km) and has still got reasonable power. The fuel economy of this car is excellent and I regularly get 700km from 50 litres of fuel. I have removed the Catalytic converter because before I could "only" get 650km.Everyting else on the car is still going strong. I have gone through 2 CV joints though which seems a little steep. The car still handles great and soaks up our bumpy roads very well indeed. |
