"I allternate between 2 mechanics for maintainable. Both believe I will be able to get at least another 100,000 miles on the car, which has 180000 miles already. It has never let me down, and is so safe even in snow. I' m buying a new sabaru and giving this one to my son. I believe it's worth more than $4,000 in value. It truly is the best car ever!"
"When we first purchased this vehicle we had consistent problems with the catalytic converter/O2 sensor. Both were changed several times in tandem or individually. The dealer was reluctant to make repairs often until we demanded action. Finally the problem was rectified and the vehicle has been mostly problem free.
There has however been the recent onset of rust in the undercarriage. Perhaps this is not a quality issue but I would think that a vehicle marketed to people such as us and in heavy snow& ice areas in which we live should have better undercarriage protection. The major issue is not with the rust per se but with the exposed lines, (brake, fuel etc)"
