Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Subaru Justy hatchback?

Very few of these cars were sold - for very good reason - so despite the Justy's age, it's hard to build up a detailed picture of how reliable they are going to be. However, one thing we have noticed from owners' reports is that the engine's cylinder head can crack, which can be a very costly fix because it means a full engine rebuild.

The Swift sold more units, so we have more idea of the areas of concern with this car. Since the two are largely identical, some lessons can be learned. Rust can take hold easily, so look out for bubbling under the paintwork. The steering and suspension need regular upkeep as well, so check for uneven tyre wear and unusual noises from underneath.
