Can I expect the same reliability of a Honda Accord with at least 200k on a WRX engine? Subarus are the underdog of the big 3 (Nissan, Toyota, Honda) Japanese companies. I dont know any one who has one, but I want a WRX, and Im wondering how reliable they are.
They're on par with the big 3 as far as reliability goes. The new ones have had some issues, but they're slowly getting worked out. If you do buy one, make sure you keep up with the maintenance. There's nothing worse than having oil cut off to your turbo
. Dont mod them and they'll be fine to 200k miles. Hell, I have a 2008 impreza STi with about 13k miles I've been beating on for the past 7k miles lol. No problems so far, and I beat it hard! One thing, watch out for the infamous piston ring #4
