    2004 WRX Sedan

    Currently at 212,XXX. The lifespan of these cars continually surprises friends, family etc who nay-sayed when I bought it at 87k.

    Major repairs:
    Cracked radiator, installed Mishimoto ~120k
    Whining tranny mainshaft bearing, rebuilt at DSG at ~168k
    Dead starter at 198k, rebuilt locally
    O2 sensor at ~180k
    Front left wheel bearing started dying today :P

    Glad to join the club, this is a truly awesome thread. After reading these I am slightly less nervous commuting 80+ miles a day with mine!

    Man, I think it has literally been over a decade since I last got on here. My odometer is at 153k on my 2005 Impreza OBS SE.

    OK, I'm honestly going to update this week, because I actually finally just rolled over 100K last month in my '03. So if anyone wants in post up now.

    Hey, new guy here and I got a question. I am looking into buying a 2015 WRX, but being turbo'd I'm afraid it won't last me that 'long'. I've read stories about the earlier generations WRX's engine "blowing up" and valve seats and such going bad. Also, I've talked to a private shop owner and he said that he gets Subaru's (in general, but turbo'd engines) that comes in for a head gasket job with only 55k on it.

    Are all these due to poor maintenance? Or because it was too heavily modded and things wore out faster? Or because it was just a 'dud/lemon' car?

    My plans are, maybe, slight bolt-on mods when I end warranty, but until then I'll be using it as a daily driver, commuting from home, school, and work (mostly city) and the occasional spirited driving via back roads.

    Any/all help will be duly noted and thanks in advance!

    Every car has a different story. But if you're in this thread, you no doubt notice that there are tons of high mileage Subarus. They are no more prone to problems compared to any other car. If you don't take care of them, then of course they are going to blow up.

    Most of the time when you see an engine blowing up now, its because someone has pushed it way past its limit (kids...since the older gens are the new Civics) or someone hasn't kept up with maintenance.

    Of course a shop owner is going to notice when Subarus come in...because if they don't come in, that means there's nothing wrong. Every car will have those with faults and issues. It's just the nature of cars.
