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

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.
1993 Subaru Loyale story
This is my first car. My baby.
I took her in for a routine timing belt change. They put it on wrong.
Failed to turn the camshaft 180 degrees after installing the first of two
belts. I waited 4 weeks for this process, then was told that my engine was
busted (low compression in three cylinders) It would cost over a grand to
fix, but they were willing to "take a look and see what they could do"
I lost my ability to drive, resulting in loss of my catering abilities and
loss of a job. I was set back potential thousands of what could of been
hard earned dollars. I had no other choice but to set her up until I could
afford the proper work that needed to be done. Little did I know that all
that needed to be done was putting the timing belt on proper. My parent's
next door neighbor heard the story and had it done in two hours! She runs
We took this to the highest power of CT customer satisfaction, and the 4
month battle to get our money back resulted in complete disregard for what
they had failed to do. They chose not to refund my money so this is my
This is not the only story. This is My story. I have heard many of which
other's beloved cars have either been falsely "fixed" or not fixed at all.
I want to hear your stories. I want to hear everyone of them! Please. If
you have a story relating to this, or have ever been jipped by our Huge
"trusted" national garage, I want to hear it.
Video responses are preferred.
This video was recorded and edited by my father. All work done to the car,
and present in the video is our neighbor Nathan. Thanks to them. My subie
is running perfectly again.
