What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The Justy is the only four-wheel-drive supermini (of a certain age) you can buy

Against Ride and refinement are poor, the boot is tiny

Verdict Only good if you really need four-wheel drive

Go for… Five-door

Avoid… Three-door

Subaru Justy Hatchback
  • 1. Look out for any sign of a cracked cylinder head, which means a costly full engine rebuild
  • 2. Rust can take hold easily, so look out for bubbling under the paintwork
  • 3. Check for uneven tyre wear, which can indicate suspension or steering faults
  • 4. Check for faults with the four-wheel drive system, as it can be costly to repair
  • 5. The interior is plasticky, and the four-wheel-drive hardware robs the rear cabin and boot of space
