1990 Subaru Loyale 4dr Wagon 4WD


Review

I have never thought of a Subaru
Loyale. but bought it for saving miles
on my PT cruiser. I am plesantly
surprised at the value to fun ratio.
Its a 90 4wd 3spd auto wagon, bought it
for 700 from a small dealer with 99400
miles. no oil leak, starts everytime,
4wd works magic on snow mud, and some
curb and grade hopping. lots and lots
of room not fast but get the job done
without questions.


Best Features

4wd ofcourse. But the room interior, PRICE, fuel economy, and the overall subaru design of engine drivetrain.


Worst Features

mileage.. but its expected on a 3spd.

1990 Subaru Loyale Turbo 4dr Wagon 4WD


Review

This car is very dependable. Has never
left me stranded and has gone through
some high snowfall winters with no
problems. Great gas mileage and the 4WD
makes winter driving real easy. The
only downside is that this car seems to
rust to pieces underneath. Almost all
my repairs have been due to rust. In
addition this car is notorious for
engine oil leaks - don't bother getting
it done - just live with it. I had the
engine rebuilt and 2 years later is
leaking again


Best Features

Gas mileage, Easy to drive


Worst Features

Rusts like there is no tomorrow. Engine oil leaks

Review

If you are looking for a great ski car
this is the one! My 1990 subaru
wagon will plow through the snow
when I see SUV's stuck on the side
of the road. I drive to the ski
mountain five or six days a week
during the winter months. During the
summer time it is a great car for
lugging around my climbing gear on
back roads. If this car can handle
southern oregon/ northern california
roads and weather it will take
anything any other part of the country
will offer. If you are a ski bum or
outdoor recreationalist this is the car
for you!


Best Features

The four wheel drive with standard transmition means my 1990 subaru wagon can handle as much snow as mother nature can dump. It has lots of room for me and my gear. It isn't fast but it always starts and handles very well on back roads and in the snow.


Worst Features

Nothing! No need for a fast car anyway! Just something that always starts and handles snow and back roads like a champ!

1990 Subaru Loyale 4dr Sedan


Review

I have a 2wd w/ 5spd. It was a hand me
down but I have had no reason to
complain. I got it w/ 155000 miles and
it now has 230000 reliable miles on
it. The only semi-major repairs have
been a water pump and altenator, which
usually wear out after that many miles
on any car. For a cheap car, the build
quality is great and the interior
materials are far superior to anything
domestic. Gas mileage is 34 for mix
driving. It's not fast, but it's
cheap, reliable transportation.


Best Features

Gas mileage. reliability. great steering feel. comfortable seats. seat and dash materials.


Worst Features

more power, but otherwise a great car

1990 Subaru Loyale 4dr Sedan 4WD


Review

We bought this car from a family
member 3 years ago. It has a peppy
engine and after a brief engine
problem, it has never failed us. We've
put over 29,000 miles on it without a
problem. The 4WD works like a gem.
It's a 5 speed manual and I get 35
miles to the gallon on the highway and
around 27 in the city.


Best Features

Great Gas Mileage Easy Clutch
