    If you find a car from an enthusiast who appreciates what these cars are capable of producing with work, expense, and modifications, I would expect it to blow up.

    If you find a car from an owner that maintained it with authentic Subaru parts at the correct intervals as specified by the maker and kept all receipts, I would be upset if anything unexpected happened to it at 120K. In fact if that were the case I would never, ever buy another Subaru again. In the 21st century we should not tolerate low reliability if the car is maintained according to the maker's info.

    See the how-to-buy sticky threads in the purchasing forums. Go to this link, and read the first 6 (six) threads up top plus the links contained within those threads.
