[HD] '90 Subaru Loyale Offroading (May 23, 2013)
Nothing major. Just some light offroading that is well within the
capabilities of the car. I never even switched into 4WD Hi, let alone 4WD
Lo. Entire video was done in FWD. I didn't want to do anything major, since
my engine is still relatively new to my car. Plus, without a lift kit,
ground clearance is definitely an issue for major offroading.
Anyways, just driving through the woods in my Soob. Nice to be in the
Subaru's natural habitat. :P I would've gone much further on the trail, but
as I started climbing in elevation, I reached some snow. Snow is nothing
for the Subaru, but again, ground clearance is an issue. Snow is
unpredictable and I can get high-centered if I'm not careful. By the time I
got to the snow, I was far from civilization. Without another person in
another car, I didn't feel comfortable continuing by myself. Headed back,
and good thing because I lost one fog light along the way. Was able to
retrieve the light and hook it back up. :P
Location is Tinkham RD, east of North Bend, WA. Exit 42 off of I-90.
Definitely a great spot, from what I can tell. First time being there, and
I'll definitely go back soon!

Subaru Loyale Hill Climb
Just a short video showing my Subaru's hill climbing power, haha. It was a
steep hill, and I made it up with little wheelspin. First time I went up, I
was greeted by another vehicle. With no place to turn around, I backed down
the hill. Front wheels locked up easily, as you could see me sliding. We
chatted for a minute, and I gave the hill another go. Made it up again, and
came back down the right way. ;)

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.
[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!!
