96 2.5 Twin Cam Engine Durability
Posted 30 January 2004 - 05:58 PM
Any opinions on the relative durability of this engine? and whether or not it is a practical cost effective goal to take the car to 200,000 or more. What is the cost of engine/transmission replacement with a new or used unit? We have two small children and money is tight these days, so I’m trying to gauge whether or not to keep the car for the long haul.

Other questions. How much could you sell your Subaru for in its' present condition? What would you replace it with? Could you be assured that the repalcement vehicle would have fewer problems than the Subaru? Your 96 probably has marginal resale value. I would try to run your Subaru for as long as possible, as cheaply as possible.
