I purchased my Suburu in 1996. It had some minor body damage and 50,000 when I purchased it. Since then, I have practacally lived in the car. It had 280,000 and still runs strong. Since buying the car I have only had to repair the following : A/C (my fault it quit working); a water pump; and an intake gasket. Of course it has needed tires, brakes, and normal maintenance. I work on the car a lot myself and have never had a problem getting to things. The oil filter and oil drain plug are extremely easy to get to, plugs, plug wire and other maintenance items are a snap to replace. This car was designed with the mechanic in mind. I would love another Suburu when (if) this one ever dies.
Easy to maintain and takes curves like a sports car.
