    Reliability?

    So I've read countless threads about STi's (stock) being reliable, but I've also read a ton of threads and ads saying that they have a car with about 100k miles and brand new engine from factory. Is this a reliability issue, or a car being driven to the ground issue?

    If the car is properly maintained it will last well over 100k.

    Most issues and failures are a result of abuse and improper modifications/maintenance.

    This. Most 'splosions" happen at the nether regions of the tach.

    And if a well maintained WRX makes it to 100K, there is no reason why it would die a sudden death somewhere near that point.

    I figured it was a bit of a broad question because of all that goes into ruining an engine, but coming from buying Honda's I've never seen it as much (I also understand Honda and Subaru are in a different class than each other). I figured it would be the usual beating of the engine that would cause this, but I also figured what better place to ask than a forum. Also the fact that so many people add in "replaced by (insert Subaru dealership here)" as if it's a problem even they know about.

    Subaru is a good brand, and if you take care and maintain your car you should not have problems with it other then wear and tear which parts can only last so long before needing to be replaced but take care of your car and you will be fine, My parents bought a New 02 GMC 4x4 and that stupid truck as 375,000 miles on it and does not burn oil.. just take care of it and you will be fine
