1993 Subaru Loyale 4dr Sedan


Review

it was very reliable. I bought it at 7 yrs and 109k miles and sold it at 14 years and 150K miles.
The only problems I had were oil leaks which lead to frequent CV boot and CV joint replacements.
In the last year or so, it started having an overheating problem. Did a tune up of some kind which improved the condition. I regretted selling it.... since my 2000 Legacy lost the engine and the headgaskets that same day.

1993 Subaru Loyale 4dr Sedan


Review

traded in a 1989 Corsica for this, was a very good
trade overall ... had it for 11 years, my sibling
had it for another 4 ... Good interior design, very roomy for such a small car.
Gas mileage was ok, about 26 mpg overall.
Traction in winter was ok considering it did not have 4wd, though the 13" wheels could not go into deep heavy snow.

Watch out for the three-part cat. converter, is
expensive to replace.
Watch out for oil leaks though is not really an
issue.
watch out for auto-trans., it did not like to
shift back to 1st upon stopping without help
from the shift lever.
watch for rust on left rear fender though it
does progress slowly
watch for headlight bulbs, I went through a few


Best Features

seat design in rear is very good though all seats lack thigh support for long-leggers trunk is very roomy reliability build quality


Worst Features

engine noise was always present though not irritating thigh support in all seats engine performance

1993 Subaru Loyale 4dr Wagon 4WD


Review

The best car ever! I had is car for 3 years and it had 446,000 miles, and it finally died. It could go through just about anything. I highly recommend this car.


Best Features

Four wheel drive and reliable to a fault, also it had little cubbyholes for everything.


Worst Features

Only one thing they need to change is the rust problem.

1993 Subaru Loyale 4dr Wagon


Review

This is the most reliable, economical
and practical wagon I have owned. It
is now 10 years old and I have to part
with it since I just bought a Subaru
Forester. The only fault with this
vehicle has been that it rusted very
badly. Mechanically it could not be
killed, but the body just rotted away.


Best Features

Lots of space no longer found in wagons. A Japan-made wagon, it has not been replaced by Subaru. It was available as front wheel drive, AWD, and on-demand 4 wheel drive.


Worst Features

Engine a bit sluggish, though very reliable.
