Well it hit 300,000 miles this year. I converted it to Mobil one full synthetic extended mileage oil from day one. Auto transmission stopped backing up at 250,000 replaced with junk yard transmission which has a strange noise in it, but has held together for the last 80,000 miles. These cars are indestructible. They just rust away. Side note, I drove a 1988 to 480,000 miles, finally rusted in two and couldn't get it through a wv state inspection, or I would still be driving it the 2.2 L engines are the gest Subaru ever made.

My Subaru LSi has 200,000 miles on it and I have
had no trouble to speak of at all. I have had regular
oil, transmission, and gearbox fluid maintenance.
The only parts that have been replaced is the
starter (very easy to get at) and the alternator
(replaced free by dealer due to recall-original
I have had 5 other second cars in the same
timeframe and none compared to overall
satisfaction. It's the little car that could and DID!!
New sheet metal freshens the flanks of one of our favorite compact sedans and wagons. Unfortunately the turbocharged engine has been dropped, leaving the Legacy with a rather anemic 2.2-liter four-cylinder that produces a meager 135 horsepower. The value leader Brighton wagon is introduced for budding naturalists. It includes all-wheel drive, air conditioning and a stereo with cassette. The Outback Wagon is also introduced as an alternative to the burgeoning SUV market.
