    How are Subaru's for reliability

    How are Subaru's for reliability? this is my first.
    i hope to get a long run out of this car.
    i will mainly be using it for commuting. i drive mostly highway miles.

    how many miles do you guys have on your Subaru's?

    i opted for the 100,000 mile warranty not knowing what to expect.

    i own a 2011 5door STI

    Very good reliability. The better you maintain it, the better it will run. Put good fluids in it and follow the proper maintenance.

    Subaru is up there with Honda for reliability. Granted your running a high performance motor so you have to be more careful. Its definitely not unheard of to hit 200,000 or even 300,000 miles on a WRX or STI. I've heard other Subaru's put up 500,000+ miles

    nice, you guys are making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. LOL

    it is good to hear. This is the most expensive car i have ever purchased so i have been little nervous about how long it will last. i don't beat my cars to bad. i am really good about maintenance. i have a Toyota pickup with over 300k on it and it still runs like a champ. That goes to show you how maintenance can make cars last.

    Just be very diligent, and don't void your warranty by modding without seriously thinking it through and researching like crazy.

    you can't own a Subaru without that bad a$$ Subaru sound.

    As long as you keep up with the maintenance, you can get some serious miles out of these cars. Oh, and welcome by the way!
