1990 Subaru Loyale 4 Door Sedan 1.8L gasoline from North America
Tiny road warriors
Parts that I have replaced:
Front CV shafts.
Coolant temperature sensor (needed only a cleaning).
EGR valve and performance EGR gasket.
Spark plugs / ignition wires.
The in-dash electronic clock burnt out... replaced with new one.
Has some rust issues with being in the North-East U.S... salt and snow seems to just eat away, especially the wheel-wells and fenders.
This 4 door sedan is a mean little Subie.
It is a little underpowered due to the 1.8L 4 cylinder flat 4 Boxer engine (non-turbo) with a 3 spd Automatic transmission.
Handles great, especially in the winter... great in the snow this year even without snow tires up front... only new all-seasons. Also interesting because it's only front wheel drive.
So far this car hasn't needed much other than the usual preventative maintenance... surprising considering it is a 21 year old!
This car is my daily driver... it's great seeing people look at my car and say "That's a Subaru?".
I own 2 of them myself... the second is a 1992... only other difference is that it's a 5 spd manual tranny... and it's silver and not white.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
