I bought my Subaru when it was 17 years old but only had 116,500 miles on it. It was and still is in incredible shape. With the price of fuel today I was overjoyed at the 32 mpg I regularly get. I did have to replace the muffler but at minimal cost. When car wash day is here it takes only a few minutes to wash. Acceleration is good at top end. Low end not so good.

I bought my '87 Subaru with only 45000 miles on it. It had been sitting for years in a garage. For the two years before I bought this car, it sat outside to weather the elements. My dad went to test the car and after all that sitting the car fired up instantly. I've had to replace a few parts mainly because the car sat for so long. I have replaced a water pump, an alternator, and the radiator. The car was overheating because the radiator was clogged. But all in all the car has really been reliable. Just a few more touch ups and the car will be running better than new. I really love this car.

I've had my 89 Subaru XT GL since 1991
and I like a lot. I was rock solid
reliable till it hit about 65K.
Several problems since then till now,
at 87K. Cracked intake manifold,
muffler replaced couple of times,
brake are naturally weak and I've had
to have then done twice. Clutch went
at 20K but replaced under warranty and
not problems since then. Parts

I bought this car new in 1991 and I
still love it now as much as I did
then! I've had other cars
simultaneously but they're gone and my
Subaru is still around. It's completely
reliable: I've only had to do normal
routine maintenance/replacement of worn
out parts, and my XT shows no signs of
wearing out. I'm completely satisfied
with my Subaru and will definitely be
purchasing another Subaru (obviously a
different model) in the future.

I had that car for two years and all I
had was problems. As soon as one thing
gets fixed, another needs attention!
And repairs are costly!! If you want
to put lots of money in something that
won't last long, go ahead. Too bad it
had to be my first car! I will never
have another Subaru in my life.
#4 a used 2.5GT. This is the first car I own that I won't drive into the ground or be done in by some outside force, only because my needs have shifted quite a bit and I am looking seriously at the XT...
