Reliable and comfortable

published

Bought a second hand 1999 Subaru Liberty RX several years. It has always been comfortable to drive and reliable. I'm only writing this review now, as I am preparing to sell this vehicle.

It has required no major work. Leaking at the valve cover gaskets (as common on this model's engine) and a new starter had to be recently installed. Several bushings are starting to fall apart, but that is to be expected in a car of this age.

My next car will be a Subaru.

Purchased in April 2010.

Really amazing car

published

I was given this car after having to leave my Mercedes with my ex.

Best thing ever, sticks to the road, entertaining to drive (love Awd now), and surprisingly quick (mid range) also good on fuel.

I should be replacing her, but why, she never misses a beat

Oh the tiny battery has been an issue (once) but hey small issue in a great car

2.0 2003 Subaru Liberty

published

My 2003 Liberty is the best and most reliable car on the road with only 180k on the clock and only a clutch change. It has performed better than I expected, at only 101kw it can still take a Falcon or Commodore on the road.
I am very surprised with the performance for such a small engine and fuel econemy.
I recommend Subaru as a family car or for fun.

Don't forget some of the parts can be $$$, but at the end of the day its quality that lasts for a long time.
Reliable, efficient,
Parts can be expensive, but pretty well priced.

Liberty 3GEN (1998-2003)

2001 Suburu Liberty Heritage does anyone know if it has heated seats as there are wires under the front seats?

Hi Glen, The wires may be for the electric adjustment of the seats, unless you have a button near your AC controls that reflects heated seats, my 2014 model has electric adjustable but not heated seats.
