I was reading through old alt.autos.subaru newsgroups and I found this. I thought it was kinda funny so here it is...

I have to say I hate my 93 Loyale wagon. I'm a car buff and bought the
car brand new when my really neat 88 Civic 4WD wagon was costing buckets
of money to fix and dying on me periodically (toasted ignition module
each time, I sold it when the warranty ran out). The thing is the Civic
was fulltime 4WD, had a 16 valve 105 hp engine and went up the long
snowy hill near my house really well sideways (and acquired taste but
it's fun!). The Loyale on the other hand is noisy, sounds like a VW bug
with a bad engine and has no noticeable power to speak of. I bought the
car because it was cheap and 4WD and had planned to dump it after a few
years for something more interesting.

The problem is that the damn car won't die! It has 173,000 km so far,
leaks oil and is still noisy and sluggish. It always starts, even at
minus 30F, goes through just about any snow and works quite well as a
tractor for pulling down hung-up trees. It has plenty of space and
doesn't use much gas and can even be coaxed to cruise at 140 km/hr as
long as there aren't any long hills. It will probably keep on truckin'
to something like 300,000 km (several friends' cars have done it) until
rust finally kills it.

<strong>The moral of the story is, if you don't want to get stuck with a Subaru,
don't buy one. Once you've got it you won't have any excuse to get rid
of it until it rusts away. If you live in the south-west, God help
you...it will probably last forever!</strong>

Funny, I pity the people who are stuck with Hondas =P

(No offense to Skip? or whoever was selling the Civic Wagovans last month.)
