it was very reliable. I bought it at 7 yrs and 109k miles and sold it at 14 years and 150K miles.
The only problems I had were oil leaks which lead to frequent CV boot and CV joint replacements.
In the last year or so, it started having an overheating problem. Did a tune up of some kind which improved the condition. I regretted selling it.... since my 2000 Legacy lost the engine and the headgaskets that same day.
