Theoretical Speed Limit: 113MPH (Engine hits redline, any faster and the transmission can blow up as well) Gas Mileage: 23/24 City/Highway (32 with new plugs, tires, timing belt) UPDATE: I have crashed it. but i'm still driving it!
[HD] 1990 Subaru Loyale -- My Second Car
So basically this is a walkaround and overview of my new car, a red 1990 Subaru Loyale wagon. My old car, the 1981 Subaru GL wagon, died from a cracked block or head and was towed away on Easter, 2012. A week after, I picked this up. When I bought it, it had three main problems. The first was the battery was dead from sitting for a couple months. Fixed this because I had a new battery installed in my old car a couple months before it died, and I just transferred it over. The second problem was the tires would go flat within a day or two. Fixed this by buying a set of four wheels/tires off the Ultimate Subaru Message Board for $30, swapped them out, and sold my set for $20 on the message board. The third and final problem is the passenger axle. Both the inner and outer boots are torn, and the actual axle is bad. Went to the Pick-N-Pull to get an axle, but I didn't have the right tools. Instead, I got two new headlights (the originals were yellowed and not bright), a new clock, two speakers, a bunch of fuses, and a couple headlight bulbs. This car is better than my old one because it's go 90 horsepower (versus 73), runs better, has five gears, and is fuel injected. It's also got a softer suspension for a better ride. Still has on-demand 4WD, so that's useful. It's just overall a better car. I'm glad I got it. Be looking forward to dashcam videos!!
