  1. I haven’t had a lot of hills or mountains with the Loyale yet, but she seems more than capable around town. She has survived the Capital Beltway at speeds of 65mph...twice! I had a 1987 Mk2 Golf that was a lot scarier to drive at speed. And then the one time that the VW’s hood flew up and smashed against the windshield on I-95 at 60mph. Good times.
  2. Thanks for all this info! The car (according to Carfax) was originally a Colorado car. I expect she got here to DC and wasn’t needed as much — driving here sucks, to say the least. Thanks again for all the pointers. I hadn’t heard of the strut issue yet & will check them out for sure.

    Junkyard bits..

    They came out of a 1992 Loyale, but there’s no telling where they came from originally. They’re stamped with “Subaru of America” on the rear.
  4. Today’s junkyard find: OEM all-weather floor mats from a 1992 Loyale and the original toolkit. Mine was missing these bits. Got a bunch of other odds and ends. As I found em on top, a bit cleaned up on the bottom.
  5. She was definitely clean! Driven an average of 4,500 miles per year since she came off the line. Plan is to keep her as close to stock as possible, but that’s always what I say when I get a new project...(but it never lasts)
  6. Good day everyone. Picked up a 1990 Loyale wagon over the weekend. She's in amazingly good shape (no rust, tons of service records) & I'm so looking forward to building a long-term relationship with her. My first Subaru, coming from the world of Volkswagens and looking to get into something new. Found this site after searching for answers to some common problems and fixes in older Subarus. So many of you have helped me already, even before I signed up! Cheers!
