The biggest problem the H6's have is the AC belt tensioner bearing :-p.

there's a sticky here about that issue, at 140,000 miles one has probably already failed at some point or will. luckily they can be fixed in a matter of minutes for a few bucks. very easy repair.

I've put over 100k personally on my 1998 EJ25 Legacy and I definitely cannot say it has anywhere close to the same track record, that's for sure
Like GD said, AC tensioner belt bearings need to be replaced when they start to squeal but it took him like 15 minutes to do both of them for me. The dealer will only sell you the two entire assemblies for close to $250 dollars but the two bearings from NAPA are like $20 bucks.
