I read the whole 4x4 cars article. The one with the 2 Audis, a civic 4wd, a corrola, 4wd, AMC Eagle wagon, mitsubishi/dodge colt, and of course a Subaru.

They scored the Subaru very low.

But I noticed everything they complained about, was options they choose for the test car.

They tested an 86 RX sedan. Turbo, Parttime D/R trans, with NO POWER STEERING!!!

They complained that the Checker seats where ugly(they chose the RX package) They said the D/R lever was *lacking feel and clunky* (they could have got the S/R pushbutton) And they said steering and road feel where rough( they got an RX, and they couldn't afford power steering?


I would like to have seen them test both a Turbo and Non Turbo version like they did with the Audis. It kinda smacks of bias.

I know this is a really old article, but they said the Tercel was more fun to drive than the RX!? I have driven Tercels and a couple of old RXs and there is no comparison.

I have a 1985 Motor magazine that I need to scan with several page spread on the RX. I'll get around to it.

Whatever, it was and is free and easy enough to use.

Dave, I love Sport Compact Car magazine, but there is some incorrect information in that article. The low range they list if the N/A low range, that is the one fact that sticks out to me.

Lets see some more articles! Especially from NZ or Oz. :headbang:
