13420 Ambaum Boulevard Southwest, Burien, WA
I bought this 1992 Subaru Loyale for $1150 off of Craigslist in Seattle in
2012. The body is in Excellent condition and it's an automatic with push
button 4WD. Just an awesome car. These cars get 20 miles a gallon and
that's about tops so don't let people fool you with 30 mph plus... doesn't
happen. It has a 1.8 litre engine.
Thankfully I have Superior Repair (Steve and Rob) just 2 miles away. I've
had them do a bunch of work to the motor and suspension. I now have about
$2800 total in this car and it is bullet proof. One of the best cars I've
owned and I've had over 80. I also fly Dehavilland Beavers here in Seattle.
Point is... in the flying business, we trust our mechanics implicitly to
keep our planes running safe and in excellent airworthy condition. We trust
our mechanics 100%. We have to because our flights are generally 7 plus
hours a day. We can't afford breakdowns. Superior Subaru is just like our
airplane mechanics... Same exact caliber. I can even say that our Airplane
mechanics are just like Steve and Rob. Sticklers to detail and they know
all Subaru's inside and out. That's all they work on is Subaru's.
Steve and Rob at Superior Repair are the finest and most knowledgeable
Subaru Mechanics I've ever known. These guys are the absolute best and you
can take that personal recommendation directly from me. That's why they
call them "The Subaru Guys". You can even find them on the "Car Talk"
Trust me... these guys are the best!
Continuing our review of reliable vehicles, the 1993 Subaru Loyale is a
low-cost, capable option. This one was manufactured before the series was
plagued by head gasket leaks and has accumulated over 220,000 miles in the
near constant moisture of the Pacific Northwest.
As a bonus, a demonstration of an alternative use for the ubiquitous ice

caring), Solid Body, minimal under-body surface rust, no structural rust.
Car was treated by "Rusty Jones" several times. It has a very solid Maaco
paint job that was done about three years ago and holds up really good.
Engine has typical Subaru light thumping noise at idle that according to
the owner was there for years. Car drives perfect, excellent brakes and new
tires, new clutch and new alternator. Very clean interior, minor wear
through the driver's side carpet to the left of the clutch pedal. Seats ant
trim are perfect with the exception of the driver's seat bolster that has a

a classic. Check and compare. Comments welcome. Enjoy the old rig.
2014 Subaru Forester off-road snowy Misadventure & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT is bigger and
more fuel efficient than the previous model...but is as off-road worthy? We
decided to find out in one of the worst Colorado snow storms of the year by
taking it up our usual test trail. Of course the turbo-charged Forester 2.0XT that we tested came
with all-season 18 inch tires and a new CVT transmission. In our real
world testing we review the car as it is provided to us by the
manufacturer. We also drive the car the way most buyers will and that means
with the stock tires. So how did the new 2014 Subaru Forester do in the
snowy Colorado Rockies? Watch this video to find out.

Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation
WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of
the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In
the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM
drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
