Re: OT \"Economy cars\"???? Anyone have any advice??
used subaru, i picked up my commuter for $1700, it's a 91 legacy wagon 5speed. it gets 30+ per gallon, has full time 4wd, runs in the snow like it's dry pavement, can fit a sheet of plywood in the back with the seats down, has a luggage rack on top, the heat and ac work great and it'll probably run to 3 or 400k with minimal work. not to mention that once you understand the horizontally opposed 4 banger they're easy as pie to work on (heck dont even need an engine lift to take the engine out, dont have to take the engine out to do a clutch. did i mention that it handles like a vette on dry pavement and sticks like mad on wet and snow. i've been out playing and had to lock the brakes in a corner doing 30 to even break traction. best little grocery getter i ever had.
