2002 WRX 230,000 miles. Replaced US 2.5 with JDM 2.0 (still don't know the name of that motor) at 210,000. Everything is braking faster than I can fix it. Wish I had the time/money to get her feeling right.
Unfortunately I don't have experience with anything newer to be able to meaningfully respond. We've had good luck with our '02, historically, and after the rebuild+stage 2 and transmission replacement (at ~210k) the powertrain feels like a new car again. Well, better, because with the stage 2 we have more HP.
Intuitively, I feel like ours is more reliable than the even older ones (pre-'02), so have generally assumed that trajectory holds and the newer ones keep getting more reliable, but I honestly can't say for sure.
