Are subaru's reliable?

I'm looking into buying a subaru impreza WRX but can't fine one with under 100,000 miles. Will I have issues with one of I buy it with that many miles?

As long as all routine maintenance has been done on schedule it should be fine.

I would assume they are because about half of the people in tristatetuners drive evo's or wrx stis, wagons, etc.

Because tuners drive them doesn't say shit about their reliabilty. Remember, plenty of tuners drive DSMs as well.

Someone asked for a year, I'm looking at a 2002 and a 2004. The 2002 has 125,000 miles but the engine was rebuilt at 100,000 and the 2004 has 90,000.

No...unless Ferny's not in the US. I seem to recall that they missed the "bug eye" version, in the US. Ferny, why can't you find a lower milegae varient? what's your budget?

I think, Subarus are most reliable vehicles, but stay away from rebuilt, high mileage or modified Subarus, specially WRX. Good luck!

As long as you dont measure the oil level with the dipstick, they will last right.

I know people who swear by their subies, but then again, I'm talking about grocery getters. I don't know about WRXs....
