subaru justy : I am replacing the transmission of an 89 Subaru Justy, two wheel driveECVT. Does anyone known of any electronic resources that I couldaccess or have any advice with regards to replacing the transmission.Any tips, suggestions, or pointers to info would be greatlyappreciated.A buddy of mine had a '89 Subaru Justy ECVT. When he bought it (used), it had about 112K kilometers. It would sometimes hesitate or "flatspot" on acceleration and when decelerating, would sometimes surge. He thought it was a vacuum leak in the carb. The local Subaru dealer diagnosed the problem as a faulty control valve unit in the ECVT. When they replaced the unit, the car still drove funny. Then they dug a little deeper and found the ECVT pullys were cracked. The mechanic suggested that the cheapest fix was to install a "recycled" ECVT tranny from the wreckers with less miles on it. They would do this for $1500CDN! My friend quickly decided to buy another car, 'cause the Justy wasn't worth fixing for that price. BTW, none of the other shops in the area would fix it, so the local Subaru dealer was his only recourse. I believe the owner's manual for the ECVT suggests the tranny fluid be replaced every 48K kilometers (30K miles). Since most people don't bother following this schedule, I'd be very suspicious of any used ECVT Justy (especially since the odometer only registers up to 99,999.9).Sorry if this doesn't help with your ECVT tranny problem.Just thought you'd like to hear of someone else's experience...
subaru justy : Ich beabsichtige, meinen Subaru Justy wegen Nichtgebrauchs zu verkaufen- allerdings bin ich mir noch nicht sicher, auf welchem Weg genau. Daich selber nicht sehr erfahren auf dem Gebiet bin, dachte ich,vielleicht kann mich jemand nen Tip geben.Es handelt sich um einen Subaru Justy 12i 4WD ECVT, 5 Tueren,Typenschein-Nr 1 S50 28, Jg 1994, ca. 35'000 km. Letzte MFK war 99. DerEurotax Grundwert fuer Eintausch betraegt 6500.- (inkl.Kilometerkorrektur), resp. 7900.- fuer margenbesteuerten Verkauspreis abGarage.Allerdings wuerde mir die Garage 1600.- fuer grossen Service,Abgaswartung, Pruefbereitstellung und Vorfuehrung beim Amtdagegenrechnen, vor allem aber 3000.- zur Behebung vonKarosserieschaeden. Der Wagen weist an den vorderen beiden Tuerengroessere Beulen auf (Parkschaeden), die ich, da sie mich nichtstoerten, nicht beheben liess. Da dabei der Lack nicht verletzt wurde,war dies auch nicht problematisch (das Auto ist rostfrei). Allerdingsmuessen diese Schaeden fuer den Wiederverkauf offenbar behoben werden.Das heisst, 4600.- werden abgezogen, so dass mir noch ca. 1900.- gebotenwurden. Ich muss mich jetzt also entscheiden, das Angebot anzunehmen,oder die Pruefungskosten von 1600.- zu uebernehmen und den Wagen privatfuer mindestens 4000.- an jemanden weiterzuverkaufen versuchen, der mitden Beulen leben kann.
subaru justy : I just purchased an '88 Justy with 4WD for a winter beater.Any commentsor suggestions on the 4wd aspect? Any precautions I should take?Does it have the ECVT transmission? That tranny was the only weak pointin the vehicle that I can remember. Otherwise, it was a pretty solidlittle runabout. The usual check points for the car would be the agerelated items common to any vehicle.I believe these came with parttime 4wd only, so the only thing to remember is not using 4wd on dry pavement, and take care in tight slippery corners. The desire to understandis sometimes far less intelligent than the inability to understandAbout ten years ago, I once worked at a local used car dealership that had one of these "BIG OL' TENT" sales in a parking lot. We had a few 4x4 vehicles on display on top a a big plateau of dirt on the unfinished side of the shopping mall parking lot towards the woods. The plateau of dirt was about 5-6 feet high and had about a 30 degree incline around the sides except for one side which was nearly a straight drop. It was hard to see the ground as the whole shebang was covered with knee to waist height tall grasses.
subaru justy : As for the Subaru... I don't know whether someone parked the lil' Justy 4x4 up there as a joke or what. It was surrounded by K-5 Blazers, Mitsu Monteros, Ford 4x4 pickups, etc. It was the only car there w/ 4x4. At the end of the sale, the Justy still was there. We all had to help drive vehicles back to the lot & I saw the Justy & jumped in. I drove the Justy to the side of the plateau & was about to go down when I realized "holy sh--!" this is the DROP OFF SIDE!! Luckily, someone else saw what was about to happen & as I threw it into reverse, 2 or 3 guys pushed it back onto terra firma. It's a little unnerving to look out and see the ground out your windshield. Afterwards, I felt like I'd just been in an episode of C.H.I.P.s. As for my opinions on the Justy... really gutsy pull from such a small engine without sacrificing in economy. The ECVT (auto) tranny seemed to be less powerful than a stick as most would expect. Roominess in the car was fine, although the ride and handling were also predictably bumpy and jarring. The fit & finish inside also left a little more to be desired... especially '87 & '88. Seems like '89 & '90 models had a step-up in quality & features. Harder to find model is the more versatile 4-door 4x4. Same size as the 2-door hatchback, but it makes getting in/out & loading easier even if you're the only one who'll drive it. As for what someone'd pay for one now... geez I dunno. I thought I saw a clean 4wd 2-door model w/ avg. miles for less than $2,000 about a month ago.
subaru justy : I was wondering about experiences people have had with a Subaru Justy. Don't see many of them on the road-does Subaru make them any more ? What about the onesthat are on the road - reliable, sturdy, good, bad ...what about mechanical troubles etc? The tin can car! My girlfriend use to have one of these. We put about60,000 miles on it in 3 years. It never broke down, not matter how muchwe beat on it and believe me we beat on it hard. That 3-cylinder enginejust kept running. It got great gas mileage and only required oilchanges and one set of front brake pads. We also had to replace the rearengine strap bushing.(to many power shifts:) ) We would fold down theback seats and back it as full as we could get it and it nevercomplained. It was like the energizer bunny, it just kept going andgoing and going..... I can't believe it didn't fall apart. We sold it tomy aunt who still has it today.(I'm sure she takes better care of it)and it has about 110,000 miles on it. In my opinion it's a great car forsomeone who doesn't want to spend alot of money and wants to get greatgas mileage. It's also a great car in the snow. We took it to lake tahoemany times. With it's extremely light weight, skinny front tires andfront wheel drive we never had a problem. One time we were at my friendscabin and the driveway was covered with snow and ice.( it's at a steep30-35 degrees. We just put someone behind the wheel and about five ofuse just pushed it up the driveway. Everybody else had to put on chains.Most realiable car we ever had.Sure looks funny though.
