I am new here. I've owned several Subarus, including an '84 Brat, '85 GL, '06 and '07 Impreza sedans. I gave the '07 to my 18 year old son and miss it already. I currently own a 2017 Legacy and just picked up this amazingly clean '89 XT6.
Mechanically it is great, with 161k miles on the sweet sounding 2.7L H6.

The only thing I need to fix asap is the SUB FAN, the second electric cooling fan that sits in front of the ac compressor.  I gave the car a good stress test today.  Ran it while parked in 90 deg weather with the ac, wiper(nice thunder storm blew by) and lights on.  The main fan cycled on and off and kept the engine from overheating, but it did get hotter than usual.  Normally this 2.7 runs very cool.  The sub fan never came on.  The 20A fuse is fine.  I'll dig deeper soon and won't treat my little buddy so harshly until its fixed.
