Is it time to give up?

Vehicle2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewPurchased this 6 cyl. used at 60,000 miles; it now has 125,000. The engine is so much better- smoother - than in my previous 4 cyl Outback. I had hoped to run it to 150,000 or so-- it depends on how much ongoing repairs cost. An ongoing maintenance issue is that the brake discs- esp. front- have worn out fast and the rotors warp -- somewhere I heard that they were undersized for the weight/size of the engine. This year I have to replace the muffler and a rusted out rear suspension piece - pricey repairs that I hope keep it on the road another year or two. I've been able to go almost anywhere, in any weather, on rough roads or the highway-- it's been a fine car.
Best FeaturesEngine, AWD, 8+" road clearance, just- right sizing.
Worst FeaturesA bit irrelevant at this late date!
