most all justy's that i have ever seen in a bone yard have between 95 and 115k on them. i believe one of the main reasons for this is that it is such a pain in the @#$% to change the oil filter. the only thing "bad" about the justy's are those with the ecvt transmissions. (flawed by design) however some people have good luck with them, i have a 2wd ecvt in my parts car that works great and that has about 90k on it i think. be warry of any leaks as the gaskets for them are big $$$$. also the body style switched in 89 and alot of the 89-94 parts will interchange but there are some that are 89 only. hope that helps.:wave:

Wife & I had a Justy for over 8yrs before a Large-Hulking-SUV slammed it into a GMC van going the other way--Wife STILL misses it--was a '91 with 125k on it (we bought it with 4k!!)--the plastic valve cover leaks (lots) & Subie Man wants big $ for the gasket--but I found that the stock gasket is the one that seals better. Yes--avoid the ECVT trans--The waterpump is a roiling pain in the*&(%!! to repair--but the T-belt is the best replace I've ever done--All around Great car--average MPG was in the 40's--used NGK trinary spark plugs (B7ET)-Mazda RX7--went up 3/5 mpg after. My vote if you want a great little car! ;)
