What is the difference between GL and DL for an 89 wagon? The spec sheets look identical except for tire size. Is the difference in the option package?

Grand Luxury : GL

Dilaptiated Liability : DL

GL has all the fun, keen options that make me love Subaru. DL does not.

Dls have quad headlights like the EA81 GL cars. the EA82 GLs have combo lights. GLs have tachs, and more insturmentation than DLs. GLs have wider tires and plush interiors. DLs do not. Thats all I know for sure, but I am positive that there are more differences.

Do a search, i think we went over this one a little while ago, and it was pretty extensive, but basically its like what the other two guys said, the GL is "gots lots" and the DL is "didn't leave S**T but an am radio"

also an obscure fact is the dl , devoid of luxury, does not have the rear heat passages enabled, they just hold the carpet in place

I guess that's another difference between Canadian and US models. All Canadian GL models (GL and GL10) had power windows and power door locks.

I wish I could find a decent late 80s DL for a build up (for example NoahDL88's wagon). I like the idea of "less is better" esp in the power window dept....
Just my .02...

Cheers!
