1992 Subaru Loyale Wagon 1.8 4 cylinder from North America
Great, cheap, reliable all weather, transportation
Had to replace brakes and tires (what car doesn't)
I bought this car 2 years ago from someone I knew that needed a money fast.
This 1992 Subaru Loyale wagon is probably the ugliest car I have ever owned.
I brought it into my workshop/garage to fix all the problems I found, as I am a perfectionist when it comes to mechanical things.
This is what I found.
ZIP, nothing, nada.
A year later I bought another one for possibly parts for a poultry sum.
Car was too good for parts. Put on Brakes and tires, and gave it to my 16 year old Grandson.
So I bought another 1993 Loyale wagon online for possibly parts without driving it. Had it shipped from Colorado to NC.
$200 later I have two 4 wheel drive work horses.
If the Japanese had their act together like this in 1941, this might have been written in that language.
I am looking for # 4 to fix up and give to grandson # 2.
I have owned at least 50 cars trucks and other types of vehicles in my life including Caddies and Honda's.
I rate this 16 year old car in the top 3.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Hi, I have a 1990 Loyale, the first time I saw it, I had my doubts, the rear end was buried in mud, for a couple of years I guess, it was covered in 4 inch pine needles an inch thick, maybe one winter, hopefully. Long story short... got her back yesterday, from Subaru dealer, just a check up, tires, radiator, brakes, so this is my winter project, larger wheel wells, perhaps a lift?
The body needs work anyway, and I need a useful vehicle, it must have a roofrack, and a tow hitch, and a deer guard. This is my first Soobie, but I've had over 25 beetles, and this is what VW should have done. I better go. Jim.
